Kent Theatre to present ‘Bull in a China Shop’

The Cedar Springs Community Players will be presenting the comedy/mystery “Bull in a China Shop” by C.B. Gilford on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14-16. Performances will be at the Kent Theatre starting at 7:30 p.m.

Working with new director Kristian Phillippy, the Cedar Springs Community Players (standing, l–r) Betty Childress, Mimi Russell, Pat Kennedy, John Foley, Kathy McFarlane, Carol McNulty, Linda Hunt, Don Hunt; (kneeling, l–r) Peggy Snell and Joanne Carter bring a comedy/mystery to the Kent Theatre.

The action starts when a houseful of sweet little old ladies discover that a handsome bachelor lives across the street. Needless to say, they are delighted. When they learn that he is none other than Detective Dennis O’Finn of homicide, they are faced with the problem of how to attract his attention. The answer is simplicity itself: a nice, genteel homicide with a cup of tea as the murder weapon. When a brash young woman reporter begins to suspect the truth, she becomes the next target. O’Finn is terribly embarrassed when at last he discovers that he himself is the motive for these madcap goings-on and, in desperation, manages to solve the case. But the dear old ladies are too fond of him and in the end they turn the tables on him!

First a short story in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, later a success on “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” and now a stage veteran of hundreds of performances around the country, “Bull in a China Shop” continues to enchant audiences everywhere.

Tickets are available at the Cedar Springs Library and Chase Bank, downtown Cedar Springs branch only. Tickets are $10 presale and $12 at the door.
