Upcoming Melodrama: Peril on the High Seas, Gaslight Baker Theatre, Lockhart, July 17 - August 1

Received directly and from Gaslight Baker website:

Peril at the High Seas
...or...Let's get together
and do Launch
By: Billy St. John
Directed by: Gail Hellums

All aboard the H.M.S. Majestic for a riotous adventure in this full length melodrama set in the Roaring Twenties! Little does our heroine, the heiress Merry Ann Sweet, know that she is the intended victim of the villainous Snively Swine's kidnapping plot. With his partner, the slinky and exotic Aracnia Webb, Swine disguises himself as Sir Reginald Rottentot, a British nobleman, in order to gain the confidence of Merry and her flapper friends, Mitzi, Ritzy and Ditzy. But Merry falls for the handsome waiter, Cary De Mille. Poor Cary—he loves Merry, too, but ship's policy says he can't get involved with a passenger.

Must these two ships pass in the night? Not if Merry's flapper friends can help it! Together, they transform Merry from a shy young lady into a red-hot jazz baby. Meanwhile, Swine launches his kidnap scheme. It's sink or swim for Cary. Can he save Merry and stay out of Aracnia's clutches?

It's up to the passengers—movie star Mary Pickaxe, gossip columnist Hedda Hooper, detective Willy Ketchum and more—to help Cary put the damper on Swine. Your cast and audience will go overboard in their enthusiasm for this rollicking production!

July 17 - August 1 at 8:00 PM. House will open at 7:30.
July 25 Will also feature a matinee performance starting at 2:00 PM.
