For the first time in the tri-state area, Chambersburg Community Theatre brings you a riotous comedy It’s Onlhy A Play…sure to have you rolling in the aisles!
Featuring a cast of some of CCT’s most comedic actors, this play runs March 22-24 and 29-31 on stage of the Capitol Theatre.It will leave you with sore cheeks and sides from all the laughing you are about to do!
It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders has staked themselves out to await the reviews. The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill-popping leading lady, treading the boards after becoming infamous in Hollywood; and the playwright’s best friend, for whom the play was written but who passed up this production for a television series. Add to this a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre—and for comedy. But don’t worry: This play is sure to be the hit they have hoped it would be.
