High School Comedy Playhouse will bring to life 186 of Hollywood’s greatest films in a fast-paced ninety minute production of “Completely Hollywood! (Abridged)” at Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center, 150 E. Wood Street, in Palatine. This Palatine Park District program was created to give high school students an opportunity to participate in a comedic play during the summer months. Performances will run from July 14 through July 23 with 7:00pm shows on Fridays and Saturdays, and a 3:00pm show on Sundays.
Fasten your seat belts because it’s going to be a bumpy night as the cast rummages through reels and flicks through films in this riotous carnival of classic cinema. “Completely Hollywood! (Abridged)” is from authors Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor, the writers of the critically-acclaimed “Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” and “Complete History of America (Abridged).”
“Hollywood works as a theatrical show and tell,” says director Christopher Pantelis, “First by telling key lessons of Hollywood movies and then by showing how all the lessons come together. Whether you’re a fan of classic movies or modern marvels, there are jokes, parodies, and references for all that make for a gold mine of hilarity.”
Tickets are available for purchase through the Cutting Hall Box Office online at CuttingHall.org, by phone at 847.202.5222, or in person at the performing arts center. Tickets are $15.00 for adults, $13.00 for seniors, and $11.00 for students and children.
