FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2004

Under the Lights, CMC's longest running student theater group, is proud to present Christopher Durang's satirical comedy, Betty's Summer Vacation (1999). This hilarious comedy is a commentary on society's obsession with reality-based entertainment. The play follows the adventures of five summer vacationers. Betty, a sensible young woman rents a room in a cottage on the New Jersey shoreline in search of a restful and relaxing summer vacation. Betty's luck quickly turns when she meets her crazy house mates: her friend Trudy, who chatters constantly; Buck, the lewd, sexy lout-hunk, who tries to have sex with everyone; Keith, a suspected serial killer who hides in his room with a mysterious hatbox; and the cottage owner Mrs. Siezmagraff a lively, eccentric, woman in her mid-40s. Betty's Summer Vacation is "a merry beachside romp featuring murder, mutilation, and charades."

The cast is Elizabeth Brunner '05, Ryan Casella '06, Daniel Curtis '07, Gregory Gallagher '07, Joanna Marks '07; Lauren Mikov '07, Alexis Piazza '07, and Kasey Schneider '07 .

The play lasts approximately two hours, and contains mature subject matter and adult language. Dinner theater is made possible by Under the Lights, the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum, and ASCMC.
