From the popular and talented community theatre troupe who brought us Calendar Girls, Whose Wives Are They, Anyway?, and most recently, Lights, Camera, Island!
Bedtime Stories is a zany comedy that brings together six funny and touching tales presented as loosely related vignettes, featuring playwright Norm Foster’s signature comedic debacles laced with mild sexual innuendo.
These “bedtime stories” won’t put you to sleep – you’ll be laughing too hard! A cavalcade of characters with their stories linked by a late night radio contest, a rock and roll concert, a taxi and, of course, a bed. The giggles begin with the opening vignette where Eddie the DJ coaches a middle-aged couple, to “make whoopie” on live radio for $5000, followed by to two old high school friends poignantly reconnecting at the death bed of one, and an odd-couple-style break-and-enter duo who fumble their way through a hilarious burglary attempt.
Then on to shock rocker Tommy Quick who, despite being well past his prime, has to fend off one very adoring fan. Next, an eager yet clumsy exotic dancer is about to hear some unfortunate news from her boss. The final laugh features a pair of funny movers, a directionally-challenged cab driver, and a couple who might be able to repair the hurts of their past.
Bedtime Stories is at the Harbourfront Theatre.
