Beau Jest Features Local Stars

Beau Jest is coming to Louisville’s Coal Creek Community Theatre the latter part of February and March.

The play has a very sweet Jewish theme – Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem, her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend,a WASP executive names Chris Kringle. She tells them she is dating a Jewish doctor and they insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protests of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to be Dr. Steinberg. Instead, they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor who agrees to perform the impersonation. Happily, he is extremely convincing in the role, and Sarah’s parents are enraptured. Soon, even Sarah falls for Bob.

Among the ensemble cast are community members Rich Schad as the Jewish father, Abe, and his wife, Miriam, played by Miriam Paisner.

Show dates start Friday February 25th, and the play runs through Saturday, March 12th. Evening performances start at 7:30 PM and Sunday matinee time is 2:00 PM. Ticket costs range from $10.00 to $15.00. Tickets may be purchased on line at coal creek’s website, ccctheater.org.

I am looking forward to playing Abe, the father. In third grade, I wanted to play the Jewish father in a school play, but my dad wouldn’t let me – he wanted me to have a speaking part.

Wishing you all, break-a-leg.
