The Arena Players Repertory Theatre will present Cheating Cheaters by John Patrick from December 28 through January 20 at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum’s Carriage House Theatre.
This touching, funny and warm-hearted story follows the hilarious adventures of two lovable sisters, who impersonate begging nuns in order to put their niece through art school. This scheme is complicated by a burglar, who makes off with the nuns’ ill-gotten gains and a suspicious policeman who has followed them home. The show becomes a larceny for laughter as the cheaters start cheating the cheaters.
Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 on Friday and Sunday, and $25 on Saturday. For reservations or more information, call 516-293-0674. Or visit www.ArenaPlayers.org.
On December 31, the Arena Players will offer a special, reserved-seat New Year’s Eve performance and celebration. See Cheating Cheaters at 9:00 p.m. and enjoy wine, champagne, coffee and dessert. To reserve tickets – $50 per person, $75 per couple – call 516-293-0674.
