MSU Summer Theater presents second play

“Cash on Delivery” to be performed by MSU Summer Theater

As the MSU Summer Theater’s 54th season continues on, they will be putting on the fast paced British farce “Cash on Delivery” starting tonight at 8:30 p.m. and running through July 1.

This play follows a con artist who has duped the welfare authorities for years by claiming every type of benefit for the innumerable people he claims live at his address. He’s sent scrambling when welfare investigators show up and he is forced to prove all of his boarders are in fact real. The comedy is filled with mistaken identities. Slamming doors and a con that spirals out of control.

“Watching the main characters deal with government inspectors, unconscious family members, a well meaning welfare worker, an undertaker, and a wife and counselor who believe her husband is a cross dresser will keep the audience in stitches as situations unfold and come to an explosive head,” said director Jacob Jenkins.

Familiar faces will take to the stage to bring this comedic experience to life including Peg Morris as Ms. Cowper and Topher Hodgson as Eric Swan, both of which have performed at the MSU Summer Theater for many years.

“There are many new faces as well, including Andy Busch and Greg Vettel, who will be making their Summer Theater debut with this show,” explained Jenkins.

The show will start at 8:30 p.m. every evening from tonight through Monday.

Tickets can be purchased at the box office or online at minotstateu.edu/theatre/summer.shtml and Tickets cost $6 for adults, $11 for seniors, active military and MSU students, faculty and staff with a current ID, $5 for those under 18 and $20 for deck seats.
