KCP presents 'The Rules of Comedy'

Kimball Community Playhouse (KCP) will be presenting "The Rules of Comedy" by Peter Bloedel July 14-15. This hilarious comedy showcases the talents of teens from Kimball, Watkins and surrounding areas. It gives the audience an unforgettable lesson in the infallibility of the rules of comedy when they are uproariously applied to the great William Shakespeare tragedy, Hamlet. Adults will love the clever and funny plot, while kids will delight over the slapstick antics of the talented and experienced cast. It's truly a wonderful farce that is appropriate to comedy lovers of all ages. As a special treat, free popcorn will be provided to audience members.

This show will also mark the debut of much needed new sound equipment for the Kimball Area High School Cafetorium provided by cooperative funding from Kimball Area Schools, Kimball Community Playhouse and grant resources from Kimball Community Education. Bring your whole family because there won't be a bad seat in the house, although you may fall out of it laughing.

Show times will be 7 p.m. Saturday, July 14, and 2 p.m. Sunday, July 15, in the Kimball Area High School Cafetorium. Tickets are available at the door and are $8 for adults and students, and free for preschool. No ticket pre-sales available. Find more information on Facebook and on the KCP website at www.kimball

Paid positions available for stage manager and technical director. Volunteers wanted to help with costuming, makeup and ticket sales. Permission to perform is granted by Playscripts, Inc. and show is co-sponsored by Kimball Community Education.
