ACT II Community Theater keeps the denizens of St. Charles Country roused with winning productions of hit musicals, comedies, and dramas. To close out its 2011 season, the theater raps its knuckles on funny bones with its rousing production of the acclaimed comic musical Nunsense. Hailed by critics and musical-theater fans with tattoos of nuns, Nunsense follows the foibles of Sister Julia, a middling chef who accidentally poisons her fellow sisters with tainted broth. Audiences gasp as the divine sisterhood devises ways to take the departed from the deep freeze to the grave, as the unabashedly silly show turns confessional booths into romper rooms. Handled with taste and grace, the outlandish comedy of Nunsense is old-fashioned, family-friendly, and safe for infant ventriloquist dummies.
ACT II Community Theater’s 2012 season treats the year of the dragon to a bustling wagon of revered Broadway favorites. With two season-ticket memberships, bosom theater buddies can indulge in their choice of four shows that stir emotions and free trapped laughs from lung cages. The 2012 season includes Robert Harding’s dependable cry-pump Steel Magnolias (February 10–19) and Agatha Christie’s twisty murder mystery The Mousetrap (April 27–May 6). Comedy fans can savor the rural satire of Red, White and Tuna (August 3–12) before the season ends with the world-renowned musical Sweeney Todd (October 26–November 4), which contains macabre themes unsuitable for younger audiences and compulsive pie-eaters.
