Lucky Dollar Private Eye by Tim Kelly


September 15, 16, 22, and 23 at 7:30 p.m. September 24th at 2:00 p.m.


A merry mix of mayhem, melody and mania! It’s Los Angeles’ favorite gumshoe searching for the deadly ’Pearl of Persia’ and battling his old foes: ’The Fat Man,’ mad Mrs. Mintworth, Brush Mohair, and the evil Conchita. It’s a tough job but it has its up side — the ’dames,’ who find him irresistible. So what if the bodies are piling up and Lucky’s arrested on a murder rap because of that weird bird — The California Chicken. That’s what private eyes are all about. Wait ’til you see what happens when our hero gets trapped in a madhouse run by the villainous Montrose Hogsbreath! No set problems, yet this ingenious spoof fills the stage like a Broadway musical. The wonderful score is witty and easy to sing, loaded with show-stoppers: ’Lucky Dollar,’ ’Pearl Of Persia,’ ’Something About The Boy,’ ’He’ll Never Know,’ and ’I Love A Freeway.’ Suitable for all groups, this is a real crowd-pleaser.
