April 19, 2012 - PRLog -- Two full-length plays will be performed by BIG ARTS Community Players at Herb Strauss Theater in May and July. Marriage is Murder, written by Nick Hall, will have evening performances May 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19 and a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday, May 13. Performances of Neil Simon’s The Star-Spangled Girl will be on the evenings of July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, and 14. Evening performances for both shows begin at 8 p.m.
Marriage is Murder is a comedy about ex-spouses Paul and Polly Butler, who write murder mysteries together, acting out the crimes — poisoned chocolates, lethal martinis, bodies in a trunk, daggers, and even an axe contribute to the fast-paced hilarity in the show. Their egos take some hits; however, as they strive to outdo each other, learning in the wake of comic twists and turns that marriage, like murder, is in the details. The part of ivarc Polly is played by June Koc with Peter Stearns as Paul; play is directed by Angie Koch.
Angie Koch has been pursuing her theater dreams since age 13. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts from Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington. She adds, “In the 30 plus years that I have been participating in theater, I have enjoyed the family atmosphere that creating a production brings. After moving to Lee County in June 2011, I was lucky to meet a number of people who are involved in theater production. Marriage is Murder is a good choice for the Community Players, it is a fast paced comedy that using a two-person cast, it is also manageable in set, costume, and lighting needs.”
The Star-Spangled Girl, a classic Simon comedy set in the 1960s, is the story of a love triangle mixed with politics. Cast is Jason Boeckman, Kelly Greten, and Bianca De Sanctis, play is directed by June Koc. More details to come as the show nears.
