Hauser Jr. High School will be performing one of Britain’s longest running comedies, Charley’s Aunt, Wednesday November 16 at 7 p.m., in the Hauser auditorium. The three-act farce, written by Brandon Thomas, is one of the most beloved and performed plays in high schools, colleges, and community theaters. It has a musical spin off and been made into at least three movies.

“This could be one of the most enjoyable shows that we have ever performed. It’s just plain funny,” said Dave Mason, one of the co-directors of the show.

“We are so excited to be presenting such a well-known comedy to the Riverside community. Rehearsals have been lots of fun, and the kids have truly enjoyed the witty, quick-paced dialogue,” said Karina Koncius, the show’s other co-director.

In the comedy, college gents are trying to impress their girls, but can only spend time with them in the company of a chaperone. Charley’s aunt promises to come for luncheon, but cancels at the last minute. In her place, one of the gents’ friends dresses up as an older lady and pretends to be Charley’s aunt. What more needs to be said? The situation speaks for itself!

The performances are free and open to the public, and donations are welcome.
