Plant City Entertainment, Inc. is proud to present Lucky Stiff. The show will be presented Friday, November 13 and 20, and Saturday, November 14 and 21 at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, November 15 and 22 at 2 p.m. Plant City Entertainment, Inc. is located at 101 N. Thomas St. in downtown Plant City.
Lucky Stiff, directed by Oliver Sprague, is based on the novel The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth. The offbeat murder mystery is complete with mistaken identities, millions in diamonds and a corpse in a wheelchair. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman, Harry Witherspoon, who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on vacation to Monte Carlo. If Witherspoon is able to pull off the farce that his uncle is alive, he stands to inherit six million dollars. If he does not, the money will go to either the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn or his uncle’s gun toting ex.
Lucky Stiff is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
President of the Plant City Entertainment, Inc. Board of Directors, Marsha Passmore said, “On behalf of Plant City Entertainment, we would like to extend a personal invitation to our friends down south to come see Lucky Stiff. It is a great show, with a fantastic cast, that will make you laugh, and certainly entertain you. Because we do sell out frequently, we would suggest that you go to our website at www.PCEshows.com and purchase your tickets online to guarantee your seat.”
Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for students and seniors and $12 for groups of 10 or more. Tickets may be purchased online or at Hardee’s Fashions located at 1501 N. Wheeler St. in Plant City or by calling 754-4929.
Community theatre for Plant City started in 1980. Plant City Entertainment’s first show was presented outdoors on the paved area at the old Union Station in downtown Plant City. In November 1994, Plant City Entertainment Inc. obtained its non-profit status and in 2009 it secured its permanent home at its current location.
