SCP to stage British farce

Seneca Community Players concludes its 35th season with “When the Cat's Away” at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, Friday the 12th, Saturday the 13th, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, in the Main Street School in Waterloo.

A riotously funny sex farce by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke (best known for “No Sex Please, We're British”), this production is directed by veteran actor John King making his directorial debut.

Based on a popular British TV sitcom that was remade as “Three's Company,” the plot is the tale of Mildred Roper (played by Melissa Baxter), a frustrated wife planning a second honeymoon to Paris with her blundering husband, George (acted by Patrick Fegley).

When her frigid sister Ethel (Susan Sinicropi) appears, having left her philandering spouse Humphrey (Steve Mitchell), who is having an affair with his young secretary Jennifer (Mariah Ernhout), the sisters decide to go on the trip together without the men.

Tickets are $8 in advance, and are available at WomanMade Products in Seneca Falls, Area Records and Music in Geneva, by calling (315) 568-9364, or by visiting Seneca Community Players. They will be $10 at the door.
