Feb. 4, 2020 — The Last Resort Players (LRP) board is currently formulating the 2020 performance schedule including a March presentation, a show scheduled for June and a fall musical.
On Friday and Saturday, March 27 and 28, LRP will be bringing the third iteration of the popular “Based on a True Story,” or BOATS, to the flat floor of the Florence Events Center, 715 Quince St.
This unique show features local residents presenting first-hand accounts of memorable incidents in their lives. Previous versions, with an ever-changing cast of presenters, have entertained audiences with stories, sometimes funny, sometimes serious but always based on actual events in their lives. Some of the facts may be stretched a wee bit, but who is going to care as long as the story is entertaining?
Eight raconteurs have been selected so far and a couple more will likely be added. Currently, the cast of BOATS includes Brian Cole, Sally Wantz, Larry Farnsworth, Linda Yoder, Ken Janowski, Jacquelyn Serrano, Laura Merz and Kathleen Wenzel.
Each story runs about 10 minutes with a short intermission featuring piano selections by Chris Lewis and Rhianna Haines.
Seating will be bistro-style and food and beverages will be available for purchase. Tickets are available now at the Florence Events Center Box Office.
