Playhouse 412 moves its play ahead to late March

What was once known as Playhouse 412's annual Valentine's Day play and banquet, this year's "Romantic Comedy" is being pushed to March 25-26.

Because of scheduling conflicts with the actors, the play is a month later and will not include a dinner. But the show will go on.

Bernard Slades' "Romantic Comedy" is a delightful romantic comedy of two playwrights who always seem to be moving in different directions. Jason Carmichael and Phoebe Craddock become successful collaborators but, professionally and personally, their relationship has significant ups and downs.

Slade has also authored "Fatal Attraction" and "Same Time, Next Year." The New York Post described "Romantic Comedy" as "A darling of a play ... Zesty entertainment of cool wit and warm sentiment."

The cast consists of Jason Jensen playing Jason Carmichael, Robbin Elder Bueng playing Phoebe Craddock, Lorraine Buhr playing Blanche Dailey, Teresa Nelson playing Alison St James, Doug Schultz playing Leo Janowitz and Arlene Furuseth playing Kate Mallory. Director is Dave Goebel.

Those who have already purchased tickets for the February show, the tickets will be honored for the March show. Tickets can be purchased at the Historic Holmes Theatre at 844-SHOW.
