|Melodrama on Peerless stage Sun.|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Phillips County Players and the Peerless Theatre have teamed up once again to bring a melodrama to the stage at the Peerless Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m.
“The Girl in the Tutu Or ... The Villain Kept Her on Her Toes” is directed by Penny Dockins. Set in Slippery Rock, Calif., in 1899, the fast-moving, fun-filled play mixes melodramatics with show business.
When a young, handsome theater student, Sonny Nuggett, attempts to put together a dance act to save his family’s failing restaurant, he is greeted by Colonel Questus Quantrell, a crooked con man with three clumsy dancing girls. The shady Quantrell plots to take over the café through murder and cheating two old prospectors out of their newly re-found “lost” gold mine.
