What’s Playing at the Russian River Hall
Before James Bond, before Austin Powers, before Clouseau, there was Captain Hugh “Bullshot” Crummond.
You’ll love Bullshot Crummond with the dashing (and not too bright) Bullshot, sweet Rosemary, evil Otto and Lenya, a senile inventor, and various other whacky characters.
Here at Curtain Call Theatre, we love bringing you various styles of theatre and, with this farce we stretch ourselves, hopefully to your delight, to bring the broadest comedy we may have done to date.
Written in 1974, Bullshot Crummond is anything but politically correct, intentionally poking fun at, well, just about everything and everyone.
Bullshot Crummond is a hilarious “tour-de-farce” rapid-fire British comedy classic presented in contemporary Victorian Steampunk costuming and props.
Bullshot Crummond is playing from June 1-23, 2018 at Russian River Hall.
2018 Events at Russian River Hall
CURTAIN CALL THEATRE
The exciting 2018 Season will thrill you beyond your wildest imagination.
“The Language of Flowers” by Gavin Kayner
March 2 – 24
(A California Premiere)
Directed by Michael Tabib
This is one of the most tantalizing plays in recent years. Two sisters, with a horrific mystery they share, must shut themselves away from the world until an unintentional intruder shatters their proverbial walls, culminating into unexpected revelations and surprises. Chock full of literary sensuality and dark humor, Mr. Kayner’s masterpiece is a must for the discerning theater goer. Adult situations. Don’t miss it!
June 1 – 23
by Ron House, Diz White, John Neville Andrews, Alan Shearman, and Derek Cunningham
Directed by Avi Lind
A parody of the 1930s low-budget grade “B” detective movies, this production derives its humor from the audacious attempt to transport effects normally reserved for films to the stage. Follow the fearless and somewhat dim-witted Captain Crummond through a series of adventuresome mishaps, alongside a damsel in distress, many colorful characters, and three deliciously nasty villains, to the long awaited conclusion of love, romance, and the saving of jolly old England from total annihilation. Fun for the whole family.
“Count Dracula” by Ted Tiller
October 5 – 27
Directed by Nadja Masura
The classic tale of the ultimate vampire, based on Bram Stoker’s horror novel, comes to life with some unexpected melodramatic humor and surprises. Special effects and colorful characters will add to your Halloween Season enjoyment. Bring the kids and come in costume for prizes and treats.
“Mrs. Warren’s Profession” by George Bernard Shaw
November 24 – December15 (10 performances only)
Directed by Michael Tabib.
Shavian humor and irony disguise this typical situation comedy of many a parent-child relationship. Not a Holiday play by any stretch of the imagination, but a lesson in life by any standard. A woman’s dishonorable past morphs into the failure of her life with the one important object of her being, her daughter. Or so she thinks! The dilemma that many parents must face with their children when the time comes for truth and reconciliation with their decisions for survival and self respect. Parents, beware of being judged by your own children!
