Welcome to the Alpine Playhouse in McCall, Idaho
The Alpine Playhouse, providing a home for the performing arts; a place where we can meet together to create, challenge, inspire, and entertain. Come to our productions, there’s an experience for everyone!
The Alpine Playhouse will present the comedy, Bedtime Stories, by Norm Foster for the Winter Carnival Production. The play is a sex farce with six different scenes in a Canadian city.
A shock jock radio announcer is trying to get ahead by pushing outrageous programming. He pays an older couple to have sex on the air, decides against it at the last minute, but nevertheless the action is still broadcast and the sounds of love are heard whenever the characters in the ensuing scenes turn on the radio. A vain woman rues her mean teenage past when she visits a dying boy from her high school years, trying to make amends for using him many years ago. An aging rock star tries to get a young groupie out of his hotel room so that he can just get to sleep. Two incompetent robbers have relationship discussions instead of finding the cash hidden in the house before the police show up. A stripper is fired for being a terrible dancer. A woman divorcing her husband lectures the movers on the faults of all men in general. These scenes are interlaced with shared characters, all while the radio airs the sounds of love making.
John Lewinski directs and plays the on-air husband as well as one of the hectored movers. Diane Penny is his wife. Will Minshall is Eddy Nighthawk, the sleazy radio announcer. Meghan Lightfoot is the vain dreamboat visiting the dying old classmate who is played by Eddy Allen. Meghan also plays the lecturing housewife who is disappointed at men in general and her husband in particular. Eddy also plays an incompetent robber as does Keifer Roark. Keifer also play one of the browbeaten movers. Jacqulyne Crowley is the rock star groupie and the stripper who cannot dance. Daniel Cope plays her boss and tries to fire her as gently as he can. Kelsey Claridge plays the cab driver who tries to convince Mrs. Nighthawk that her husband might be worth salvaging after all.
