Peninsula Players Theatre (peninsulaplayers.com) is concluding its 2019 The Play’s the Thing series with a reading of The Gentleman Thief — a new romantic comedy/caper by award-winning playwright Mark Brown — on April 1, 7 pm, at Björklunden.
The Gentleman Thief features handsome millionaire Jimmy Pitt, who makes a bet with a friend that he can break into a house. Jimmy meets Molly, the woman of his dreams, and is mistaken for an internationally known thief. Jimmy then struggles to keep his new friend, Spike, from stealing all of the valuables at a castle in England. And maybe — just maybe — he actually is an internationally renowned thief.
The reading’s cast members are Cassandra Bissell, Neil Brookshire, Joe Foust, Noah Simon, Adam Wesley Brown, Jack Hickey and Michael Stebbins, with others to be announced. Peninsula Players’ Artistic Director Greg Vinkler is the director.Admission to the reading is free. Seating is limited, so early arrival is recommended.
