Two on the Aisle, Three in a Van

Sometimes the best show isn't onstage but in the parking lot!

Two on the Aisle, Three in a VanTwo on the Aisle, Three in a Van, by Mary Lynn Dobson, is a comedy from the other side of the stage production: the unsung heroes who call the shows, man the lights, sew the costumes, make the props and count the tickets.

We follow the adventures of the Neighborhood Actors Summerfun Repertory Theatre who, because there is no room in the small playhouse, spend their down time in the back parking lot. They congregate around an aging hippie/now turned tech's van and work, commiserate, and support each other during a summer season of theater.

There is the stressed out artistic director, a wanna-be diva, a director with a Tarrentino spin on old favorites, a perpetually dancing chorus boy, a cranky light person, the nice guy director, the ingénue, the sweet motherly extra, and the new costume designer. Their trials and tribulations are yours to enjoy. The play proves the old adage that somehow, some way, the show must go on. And it does,just not always as planned.

Please join Vicki Stenerson and a talented cast and crew on Sept. 8, 9, 15, 16 at 7:30 or Sept. 10 & 17 at 2:00. Tickets are $6.00 for children and $12.00 for adults and may be purchased at Iverson Corner Drug downtown Bemidji, or Ken K. Thompson Jewelry.

Bemidji Community Theater's season usually includes four shows varying from comedies to mysteries to tragedies to children's theater. A board of directors determines the year's theater season based on input from members, availability of a venue, the political climate and past seasons.
