Darke County Civic Theater to present full length comedy

The Darke County Civic Theater is a non-profit community theater that is known in the area for producing melodramas and murder mysteries. The organization has been producing these types of shows for many years and just recently started to branch out and attempt other types of productions.

The recent success of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” which was performed in March of this year sparked interest in the organization to continue to challenge themselves and branch out with their productions. This led them to the laugh out loud hilarious three act comedy “Love, Sex and the I.R.S.”

Jon Trachtman (Chris Chapa) and Leslie Arthur (Trevor DeSchepper) are out of work musicians who room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the "couple" they're going to be investigated by a Mr. Spinner (Tim Hodges). Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon's fiancé, Kate (Maria Jones). Complicating matters even further, Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon's back, Jon's mother (Connie DeSchepper) drops in unexpectedly to meet her son's fiancé, the nosey landlord (Sandy Hartley) keeps checking in on them, Jon's mother hires a preacher (Kelly Snyder) to perform a wedding ceremony, and Leslie ex girlfriend (Nicole Scott) shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won't see her anymore.

This laugh out loud farce comedy is sure to leave audiences laughing until there are tears in their eyes! This production will be directed by Amy Gessler with assistant director, Kelly Snyder. Abby Kindley and Bethany Foster will be the stage managers. The show will be produced by Nicole Scott. Costumes will be designed by Sandy Hartley, props will be ran by Laura Francis and Matt Cline will be the Lights and Sound technician.

This production is set to be performed on August 13th and August 14th, 2016. The August 13th performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will provide a cash bar that will include alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for purchase. The August 14th matinee will begin at 1:30 p.m. and will be performance only.
