The cast is set, the practices are underway and Sunriver Stars Community Theater is presenting its 22nd production next month.

Sylvia Goldberg (played by Susan Quesada) arrives home to Margate, New Jersey from a trip to Israel to see her grandson get married. On a side trip to Alexandria, she picks up an object from an outdoor bazaar. But…is it a trinket or a priceless relic?

The fun starts when the geriatric genie Eugene (Mark McConnell) appears, Sylvia tries to hide him from her prying friends Mabel (Cindy McConnell), Thelma (Joyce Gallacher and Rickie Gunn) and Fannie (Janice Dost and Nancy Foote).

To add to the mix, Savalas (Billy Miller and Robert Perrine) “owns” Eugene and will do anything to get him back.

Sunriver Stars favorites Terry Perrine, Rich Mundy, Frank Brocker and new to local theatre Taia Hopkins round up the roles in this rollicking farce.

The director is Gail Gibson assisted by John Gibson with Jami Hill Miller as stage manager. All three were in the recent The Night Before the Night Before Christmas and look forward to sharing their comedy chops with this all local cast.

Performance dates are Friday March 2 and Saturday March 3 at 7pm with a matinee on Sunday March 4 at 3pm. The show repeats the following weekend, Thursday March 8 and Friday March 9 at 7pm, with the closing matinee March 10 at 3pm. All performances are at The Door, 56885 Enterprise Drive, across from Three Rivers School in the Sunriver Business Park.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children and can be purchased at
