There’s no shortage of live theater this weekend, as we have two classy productions heading into their second weekends, a flashy new musical opening and a High School dinner theater presentation of a stage version of a TV classic from the 1960s.

“Get Smart”

Would you believe, a revival of a 1960s spy spoof, created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, presented by Teays Valley Christian School? Friday and Saturday at 7 PM that’s exactly what you’ll get, with a nice dinner thrown in to boot!

Let’s go to the press release, “”Would you believe that seven police boats are closing in on us right now?” asks Maxwell Smart of the head of KAOS who now holds him captive. When the master criminal finds this a little hard to accept, the straight-faced Smart asks, “Would you believe six?” With that question, this bright comedy-satire put an expression into the language. Smart is off on a bizarre new case in which he must stop the sinister organization known as KAOS from their most shameful plot. Their plan this time is to prove their power by blowing up the Statue of Liberty! This is too much, and Smart springs (perhaps we should say stumbles) into action. Magnificently assisted by beautiful Agent 99, Smart proceeds from one gigantic blunder to another…each, however, somehow turning into a master stroke. The ultimate spoof of all secret agent thrillers!”

“Get Smart” is directed by Adam Bryan. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children ten and under. We are told that dinner will be served at 7 PM, and the show will begin at 7:15 PM, so make sure you’re prepared to eat real fast! This all takes place at Teays Valley Christian School.
