Theatre to Present ‘The Folks Next Door’

September 9, 2011

The Lindenwood University Theatre Department will present the comedy “The Folks Next Door” at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 29 and 30 and Oct. 1 in the university’s Emerson Black Box Theater.

General admission tickets are available for $10 at the Lindenwood University Box Office, 636-949-4433. The Emerson Theater and the Box Office are located in the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts, on Lindenwood’s St. Charles campus at 2300 West Clay St., just west of First Capitol Drive.

The play tells the story of Chet Roberts, who moves his family out to a secluded California beach city to escape the city and start a new life as a writer. All is well until he learns that the house next door has been purchased by the president of the United States as a summer White House. Soon, his peace and quiet are replaced by tourists, fights with the Secret Service, squabbles with his own family, and a certain dictator.

“‘The Folks Next Door’ is pure family entertainment,” said Larry Quiggins, director of the play chair of the Lindenwood Theatre Department. “It could have been a movie of the week during the ’70s on television.”

The cast includes Mike Juncal as Chet Roberts and Rebecca Berin as Jenny Roberts, along with Shelby Lewis, Sean Murray, Eric Peters, David Moreshead, Toby Gastler, Nicole Dele, Ryan Wood, Yumeho Asai, Kaitlin Fortwengler, Milly Naeger and Daniel Sukup. Assistant director is Alex Stone, stage manager is Greg Grapperhaus, and Assistant Stage Manager is Kaitlyn Diresson. Technical director is Tim Poertner, who did scenery and lighting design, with Sound design by Daniel Sukup and costume design by Craig Jones.
