You can join the Canyon Theatre Guild for some laughter and delight — in person — with the comedy farce, “Suite Surrender.”
It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel — assistants, luggage and a legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance … that is, until they are somehow accidentally assigned to the same suite.
Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this love note to the classic farces of the 1930s and ’40s.
Not recommended for young children due to mild adult language.
The laughter continues with the classic, “Pride and Prejudice.”
Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority, but with four sisters, an overzealous matchmaking mother and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject.
When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense, but the truth turns out to be more slippery than it seems.
In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?
Free champagne will be available both opening nights.
“Suite Surrender” opens Saturday and runs through Aug. 15.
“Pride & Prejudice” opens Aug. 13 and runs through Aug. 29.
