FungusAmongus Players is kicking off its second season with the comedy “Finishing School,” directed by Linda Metcalf. The cast features both familiar and new faces:
Al – Jon Benson
Wizzer – Ron Hungerford
PA Voice – Elisabeth Nelson
Shirley 2 – Lisa Kotila
Minnie – Katrina Vaara
“Finishing School” by Elaine Liner is a comedy about the friendship between Wizzer, the oldest resident of an assisted-living facility, and Al, a newcomer adjusting to life at what may be his final address. The friends meet daily to read the obits or, as they call them, the senior citizens’ sports page. Their lives get more interesting when they meet mother and daughter, Shirley and Minnie.
Performances are Oct. 12, 13, 19, and 20 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 14 and 21 at 2 p.m. at the Dassel History Center & Ergot Museum. Tickets are on sale now for $15 at www.fungusamongusplayers.org.
FungusAmongus season tickets also are available now. A $50 season ticket package includes four tickets that can be used for any of the four 2018-19 shows.
