The Charlotte Players have a handful of plays remaining in their busy season.

Curtain Up!
Based on the author’s earlier Respecting You Piers, Curtain Up! is the hilarious story of five women who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and plan bring it back to life again. They try various fundraising schemes but their most ambitious is to hold a concert featuring local talent and a world-famous star who agrees to appear for no fee! However, their plans go awry and it’s a race to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter. A fast paced and very funny comedy with five great roles for women. Curtain Up! plays March 11 – 27 at Langdon Playhouse, 1182 Market Circle, Port Charlotte.

There’s A Burglar In My Bed
After 13 years of marriage, William W. Worthington III (Billy) and his wife Ashley, wealthy New England socialites, are contemplating divorce. Their Massachusetts’ estate consists of a 200-acre compound with a sixteen-bedroom mansion and a smaller beach cottage. Thanks to a pre-nuptial agreement, both know precisely what to expect from a divorce settlement. There is one item, however, that both parties want….and that is the famous Worthington necklace. Since both want to keep the necklace for themselves, both Billy and Ashley devise separate plans to steal the necklace. There’s a Burglar in My Bed will be on stage April 13 – 24 at the Langdon Playhouse, 1182 Market Circle, Port Charlotte.

Wedding Belles
Four garden club ladies meet a young girl who has come to their little Texas town to marry an infantry man before he ships off for World War II. The women impulsively decide to throw the girl an elaborate wedding. Their lives and friendships are thrown into turmoil as they race to accomplish the nuptials in one frenzied afternoon. Wedding Belles will be presented May 13 – 20 at the Langdon Playhouse, 1182 Market Circle, Port Charlotte.
