Peninsula Players in Fish Creek will continue to perform the world premiere of Sean Grennan’s comedy Making God Laugh through July 3.

Inspired by the Woody Allen joke, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans,” the play centers on a couple of empty nesters welcoming home their three children over various holidays spanning three decades. Making God Laugh is a humorous glimpse into family life.

The Players 2011 season will continue with Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy of manners, The Importance of Being Earnest, from July 6 – 24.

The courtroom drama A Few Good Men by Aaron Sorkin will run from July 27 – August 14, followed by the Midwest première of The Fox on the Fairway, on stage from August 17 through September 4. Closing the season will be the Wisconsin premiere of God of Carnage from September 7 – October 16.

The Peninsula Players perform Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 7:30 pm in the summer. With the opening of the fall show Sept. 7, curtain times are Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm and most Sundays at 7 pm. The closing performance of each show will have a 4 pm matinee.
