Bullshot Crummond at Curtain Call Theatre

Before James Bond, before Austin Powers, before Clouseau, there was Captain Hugh “Bullshot” Crummond.

Bullshot Crummond at Curtain Call Theatre postercardFront

This dashing, determined, deliriously funny detective is a former Olympic champion, flying ace, auto racer,, and all-round sporting chap who fights the forces of evil wherever he encounters them.

When a beautiful damsel-in-distress asks him to rescue her scientist father, who was abducted and is being held prisoner, Bullshot leaps into action against his archnemesis, the devious Count Otto Von Brunno.

What ensues is a hilarious “tour-de-farce” in this rapid fire British comedy classic presented in contemporary Victorian Steampunk costuming and props.

Director’s Note

Have you laughed at the antics of Boris and Natasha, Dudley Do-right and Sweet Nell, or Snoopy vs. the Red Baron?

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.

Bullshot CrummondWritten in 1974, Bullshot Crummond is anything but politically correct, intentionally poking fun at, well, just about everything and everyone. I assert that we need to be able to laugh at just how seriously we take ourselves at times, in order to renew our commitment to human rights and justice. So enjoy!

Avi Lind, Director

Bullshot Crummond, a parody of low-budget 1930s detective movies, is playing from June 1-23, 2018 at Russian River Hall.

“The Language of Flowers” by Gavin Kayner

March 2 – 24, 2018

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.

A hauntingly beautiful play! 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!

The Language of FlowersSelected by the Long Beach Playhouse as a finalist for New Play Prize. 

Come see what critics have called, “…a hauntingly beautiful play (with exceptionally sensual lines) that operates on many inter-woven levels.” and Highly recommended for those who thrive on fine theater.”

Murder Mistaken
by Janet Green
March 3-25, 2017
No one can weave a murder mystery better than the Brits, and this one is in the tradition of the great Agatha Christie and all the other mystery writers who followed in her footsteps. Observe the charming young conniver as he plots one victim’s murder and finds out that he made an error in judgment that may work to undo his final scheme. You’ll be on the edge of your seat. A needed change from the usual Holiday jingle bells!

Noises Off
by Michael Frayn
June 2-24, 2017
This outrageous and absolutely hilarious, send-up of theater people and all their shenanigans has become a staple of theaters all over the country and the Continent. The egotistical director, the alcoholic jaded old actor, the self-absorbed ingenue, the maniacal stage manager, and all the other characters that populate this zany farce are all there for your delight and enjoyment. It’s a treat. Don’t miss it.

The Elephant Man
By Bernard Pomerance
September 1-23, 2017
The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, who has been a freak attraction in traveling side shows, is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. Under the care of a famous young doctor, who educates him and introduces him to London society, Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realized.

Rapture, Blister, Burn
by Gina Gianfriddo
December 1- 23, 2017
The recent New York sensation is a hilarious and  insightful look at sex, feminism, relationships, marriage, and a whole lot of other juicy subjects. It is also a re-assessment of our modern mores, seen through the eyes of three generations of women from the eras of Germaine Greer to Phyllis Schlaffley. An exciting evening awaits you with some wallops for laughs.
