Tickets are now on sale for Brookings-Harbor Community Theater's comedy "Bed, Breakfast and Broadway!" scheduled to open Friday, Sept. 14.

Written by Arlen Daleske and Dennis Reece, and directed by Scotty Oka, "Bed, Breakfast and Broadway" introduces a wacky cast of actors, rehearsing for their big community theater production of "You Only Die Twice."

Marge Cunningham, played by Bj Farris, is the author of this "spell-binding murder mystery," and runs the Enchanting Dreams Bed and Breakfast, which doubles as the community theater. When she receives word that a top Broadway producer (Geoffery Howard) is coming to town to hopefully "discover" some fresh acting talent, she notifies the cast, and they go into high gear to perfect the show before opening night.

They decide to stay in character and run their lines as much as possible before the performance. But it's not easy. Jack Hudson, played by Jason Liddell, plays the cat burglar who can never quite make it through the window without getting his pantyhose caught. And then there's Sally Hendrickson, played by Kristin Mitchell, who can transform herself into a butler-chasing bimbo with lightning speed.

In the meantime, a vacationing couple (Ira Tozer and Sydney Clinton) inquires about a possible vacancy at the bed and breakfast. The local actors assume the visiting couple is the producer and his wife, but in reality the man is an overwrought air traffic controller who desperately needs a break before he has a breakdown!

"Helping" the situation is the bed-and-breakfast handyman (Tony Hobbs) who can't keep anything straight, including important phone messages. Add to the mayhem a surprise visitor, Colleen Harrison, as Bobbie!

Show dates are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Sept. 14, 15, 21 and 22, and 2 p.m.Sundays, Sept. 16 and 23, at the Harbor Performing Arts Center in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center.
