Before Curtis, played by Jim Heffernan, is able to raise his glass and make a memorable speech for his son’s wedding, he must defend the time-honored ways of his past, including his attire. Cultures clash when a surprise guest is announced, threatening to throw convention out the window. Curtis finds that balancing the standards of his late father and the needs of his future family may prove too messy for this black-tie affair.
Klinton Blair will make his debut performance at The Naples Players as Teddy. Asia Johnson will portray the role of Elsie. Ellen Cooper will play Mimi. And Val Kuffel will play Curtis’s father. John McKerrow will direct.
The show will be performed Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults and $10 for students 21 and under, and can be purchased at the box office by calling 239.263.7990 with credit card information, or by visiting naplesplayers.org.
