    The Baer Theater at Morgan Park Academy

    2153 W. 111th Street, Chicago

    Beverly Theater Guild Chicago is casting "Present Laughter," a lighthearted farce that celebrates playwright Noel Coward’s legendary wit and larger-than-life persona. Based on Coward himself, actor Garry Essendine is the star of the London theatrical scene at the height of his fame and adored by legions of admirers--perhaps a little too much. Fans regularly throw themselves at Garry’s feet, drawn in by his charm and charisma, throwing his household into chaos. In the week before Garry is set to embark on an African tour, he is forced to juggle a besotted young woman with stars in her eyes, an unhinged young playwright obsessed with being in Garry’s presence, his best friend’s wife who is determined to seduce him, his manager, his producer, his secretary, his estranged ex-wife, and an impending mid-life crisis as his birthday looms ever closer.

    Rehearses 2 weekday evenings, and Sun. evenings until tech week. Performs Feb. 16-18, 2024 at The Baer Theater at Morgan Park Academy, 2153 W. 111th Street, Chicago.

    Not paid.
