A farce to be reckoned with!!
Castle Hill Players present LEADING LADIES – by Ken Ludwig

Following the runaway success of Dark Voyager, Castle Hill Players present the hysterical farce Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig.

Playing at the Pavilion Theatre from 31st May until 22nd June, Leading Ladies is directed by Baulkham Hills local and President of Castle Hill Players, Stephen Snars.

In choosing his play for the 2019 season, Stephen said: “I was looking for a stage play version of ‘Some Like It Hot’ but only found a 1970s musical called ‘Sugar’. I gave up and looked at some Ken Ludwig’s: Moon over Buffalo and Leading Ladies. Amazingly enough when I read the script for Leading Ladies it seemed to be (shamelessly) just what I was looking for in the first place. I thought this would be an ideal play for Castle Hill Players and its audience.” 

Leading Ladies follows two hapless English actors, Leo & Jack, down on their luck and travelling through Amish country, performing in community halls. The money has dried up, there’s no work for them in sight and all seems lost. Then Leo reads about a dear old lady whose dying wish is to bequeath her fortune to her two long lost nephews who, by amazing coincidence, grew up in England! After finally convincing Jack this is a great idea, the two head off to York, Pennsylvania, only to learn the ‘nephews’ are actually nieces! No problem… Jack and Leo are actors!

Audiences will love ‘Maxine’ and ‘Stephanie’ as they present themselves to the York locals. Romantic entanglements and laughs aplenty are on the bill when Castle Hill Players present the latest farce from Ken Ludwig, author of Lend Me a Tenor, Shakespeare in Hollywood and The Game’s Afoot.

Leading Ladies stars Nicole Harwood, Steve Rowe, Dave Went, Peter Gizariotis, Ben Freeman, Turkan Koch, Daniel Boole and Jennifer Leslie, directed by Stephen Snars with lighting design by Sean Churchward, sound by Bernard Teuben.

Make a great night at the Pavilion Theatre complete, by enjoying a two-course pre-show dinner at Nobles Restaurant at the Hills Lodge Hotel. Phone 9680 3800 to book your table.
