Coming August 21-23 at 7:30 pm, George Cron's A Class Act Productions presents MIXED NUTS, the Springfield premiere of three short comedies by Le Wilhelm in a new venue, the 319 Downtown Event Center, 319 W. Walnut.

Cron selected the three one-acts from a large range of works from the late Le Wilhelm's estate.  One of them is titled, and we quote, "The Junior Chamber of Commerce and Their Wives Discuss Great Literature, High School, Basketball, Sex, and Other Things"... a title almost longer than the play's running length!  (No wonder they simply refer to it as the "Chamber of Commerce piece".) George Cron said it's a bull session, "emphasis on the 'bull'!" 

The other plays are "At Squat" and "Peter."  Cron says "Peter deals with if God was a rabbit, and you were trapped in an elevator with him." "At Squat" takes place in a New York city park, where two women meet at a bus stop and talk about themselves and their lives. Addy Williams describes her character as "pretty much focused on her career, and I meet this woman who is absolutely NOT focused on any sort of career, but very focuses on figuring out her life. Also, she's rather intrusive and has no boundaries!"

Enjoy your evening even more by ordering drinks and hors d’oeuvres from your table. Tickets are $10 ($8 for students). Call 417-766-3139 for reservations.  For more information visit A Class Act Productions' Facebook page. The production will contain strong language.
