THE WANDFLOWER THEATRE –  A New Theatre Project for Youth (ages 15 – 30)

  

 

Completely Hollywood (abridged)- 186 movies in 100 minutes – July 13, 14 & 15, 2018

COMPLETELY HOLLYWOOD (abridged) – July 13, 14 at 7pm  & July 15 at 2pm
Bring your lawn chairs or a picnic blanket & basket for this WILDLY FUNNY Comedy starring Wesley Harmon, Molly Sullivan & Daphne Utt on the Carol Waddell/Galax Theatre Guild Outdoor Stage located behind the Galax Public Library. Parking is available at the Library and admission to the play is free. We will of course accept your generous donations at the show!

In case of rain, the performance will move to inside the Galax Public Library.

In their theatrical debut, The Wandflower Theatre actors will take on America’s largest cultural and economic export in this seriously silly show biz satire. Get your clapper boards ready as we rummage through the reels and flick through the films in this riotous carnival of the classics. Giving Hollywood more than just a nip and a tuck, they cut through the celluloid to condense the 186 greatest films in Hollywood’s over 100-year history into a complete compilation of classic cinematic cliches — plus a few brand new cliches they just made up.

 Please contact Wesley Harmon at wesleypharmon@gmail.com to learn how to get involved with The Wandflower Theatre.

The Story:  Mortimer Brewster is living a happy life: he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene — his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt and his great-grandfather used to scalp Indians for pleasure — but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé — all while trying to keep his own sanity as well.
