Calaveras High School Advanced drama is proud to present “Once in a Lifetime,” a madcap comic romp full of Hollywood glitz, New York City grit, and a whole lot of absurd fun.
This classic American comedy, described as “gracefully insane” and “grand chains of lunacy” by contemporary critics, launched the careers of Broadway legends George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.
This is a knockabout satiric tale of three on-the-skids vaudeville troupers – Jerry, Mae, and George – who decide to head for Hollywood and try their luck at the newest craze: “talkies.” After a hilarious series of consistent blunders, the unassuming George is carried to fame and fortune becoming (for a short time, at least) a captain of The Industry. This fast-paced, wild romp offers marvelous character opportunities, while spoofing the absurdities of Tinsel Town.
Performances are Thursday, January 18 at 7:00 p; Friday, January 19 at 7:00 pm; Saturday, January 20 at 7:00 pm, and Sunday, January 21 at 2:00 pm.
