See How They Run

SEE HOW THEY RUN on Stage at Theatre Atchison

Theatre Atchison is excited to present on stage Philip King’s SEE HOW THEY RUN, a laugh-out-loud comedy, just in time for Valentine’s Day Weekend. So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib-tickling the plot that at the show’s finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race. Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the air force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who “touches alcohol for the first time in her life,” four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which, for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories they tell him.

Directed by Kurt Schlanker (Atchison), with Technical Direction by Eric Van Horn (Leavenworth), the cast of SEE HOW THEY RUN includes Walt Boyd, Brenda Henson, Sarah Perdue Schlanker, Eve Wayman, Camden Burton, Gerry Martin, Steve Moniz, Dustin Roe, Tim Walters, and Sean Chase. Serving as Stage Manager is Jyll Chase (Atchison). Connie Shalz (St. Joseph) is Costume Coordinator and Angela Skidmore (Atchison) is Props Coordinator.
