Spring 2019 – Bedtime Stories
by Norm Foster
directed by Liz Szucs and Cheryl Dalbec
executive director Greg Geisler
Rated PG-13 This show contains mild sexual themes. Discretion is advised.
Bedtime Stories is a zany comedy that brings together six funny and touching tales presented as loosely related vignettes, featuring playwright Norm Foster’s signature comedic debacles laced with mild sexual innuendo. A cavalcade of characters with their stories linked by a late night radio contest, a rock and roll concert, a taxi and, of course, a bed.
Each vignette stands alone as a comedic take on the lives, loves and challenges faced by fifteen ordinary people and at the same time weaves a connection about friendship, romance and the true meaning of love that links the people and the stories in unexpected ways.
Six different scenes which all feature a bed as their primary focus. A shock radio jock pays a couple five thousand dollars to make love on the air. A woman visits a dying man she feels she hurt years ago. Two men rob a house and discover a shocking secret. An aging rock star is confronted by a groupie. An accident-prone stripper meets with her no-nonsense boss. A woman leaving her husband lectures the movers on the proper way to treat a lady.
