Theater: Bedraggled actors become entangled in mis-identification in ‘Leading Ladies’ at Bellingham Theatre Guild

Bellingham Theatre Guild presents “Leading Ladies” Friday, Feb. 13, to March 1 at the guild playhouse, 1600 H St. Written by Ken Ludwig, playwright of “Moon over Buffalo” and “Lend Me a Tenor,” the show is directed by Judith Owens-Lancaster.

Two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that a rich old lady is set to leave her fortune to two long-lost nephews, they decide to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and claim the cash. Romantic entanglements and hilarity ensue for Jack and Leo.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 13-14, continuing Feb. 19- 21 and 26-28; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 15, Feb. 22 and March 1.

Tickets are $14 adults, $12 seniors and students, $8 children.
