Carla Daws & Allan Eastwood in a scene from "Admit One"

The third production of the Second Act Troupe plays at the Wimberley United Methodist Church on County Rd 1492 Friday and Saturday January 30 & 31. Curtain is at 8 PM. This will be a double feature all comedy show guaranteed to provide plenty of laughs.

The first half features the ladies of the Company in a series of comic excerpts from "Hat Tricks" by Dori Appel.  Ellen Massey gets into big difficulties giving a public speech using three pairs of glasses because she can't use her trifocals. In a restaurant, Diane Hruska and Kate Conroy salivate over desserts provided by Beverly Galante and recall dream fantasies. Ellen Massey and Maggie Goodman are a pair of bag ladies who fight over items they find in the trash. Maggie Goodman also plays the owner of a junk yard who buys a vicious guard dog to protect her and her property, with some very unexpected results.

The second half features the one act play "Admit One" by Elyse Nass in which a gruff 75 year old Harold Conklin (Allan Eastwood) interviews the much younger spinster, Megan Matthews (Carla Daws), who is responding to the ad he has placed in the personals looking for a wife. They discover they have almost nothing in common except for the loneliness in their lives but can they still find friendship and possibly romance?
