Smile, giggle, then LOL at Little Colonel’s latest, "Social Security"

-A A +A

The Little Colonel Players present Andrew Bergman’s “Social Security,” the final show of their 2010-11 season at the Little Colonel Playhouse in Pewee Valley.
Directed by Rick Reinle, Social Security offers a humorous look at family, parenting and love in the “golden years.”
Social Security is comedy at its best, focusing on a trendy Manhattan art gallery couple whose life is upended when the wife’s sister from Long Island deposits their eccentric mother on the couple’s doorstep while she and her uptight husband head to Buffalo to “rescue” their daughter from her newly adopted wild college lifestyle.
The art dealers introduce the mother to a suave, spry 90-something-year-old artist and then the fun really begins.
“The play is a hoot, as sophisticated, even civilized hoot. Indeed you can laugh out loud.” N.Y. Post
Performances of “Social Security” are 8 p.m. May 20 and 21 and 2:30 p.m. May 22.
Tickets for all performances can be reserved by calling 588-1557.
Adult tickets are $15; Senior citizen and student tickets are $12.
For each play presented at Little Colonel, opening night is a dinner theatre performance; the price of the dinner is an additional $18. The theatre opens at 6:45 pm on opening night for the Dinner Theatre.

The Little Colonel Players Inc. was founded in 1956 by the members of the Pewee Valley Women’s Club to serve the cultural interests of Pewee Valley, and Oldham and Eastern Jefferson Counties.
Members gathered in local homes and on the second floor of the present-day playhouse, which at the time housed a grocery, post office and Masonic Lodge Hall.
