About this event:
Armstrong AMT Masquers student theatre troupe continues its “Simon Says" reprisal performances of this Summer's hit summer comedy series. The troupe will perform each show one time: The Prisoner of Second Avenue and Barefoot in the Park.

Friday, August 26th: The Prisoner of Second Avenue is his hysterically poignant portrayal of the downward spiral set in motion by failed Manhattan executive Mel Edison’s overwhelming economic and personal tribulations. Subsidized by his concerned wife’s undying support, Mel attempts to deal with his newfound unemployment, abusive Summer heat, sound-polluting city noise, offensive neighbors, and Manhattan’s requisite experience of being robbed in broad daylight. Will Mrs. Edison’s ascent into the marketplace balance the ledger, or does Mel’s cabin fever drive him to a nervous breakdown?

Saturday, August 27th: Barefoot in the Park is Simon's his longest running hit, a trouble-in-paradise comical insight into the suddenly complicated and compromising lives of newlyweds Paul and Corie. Personality differences aside, they find an assortment of challenging troubles with their new apartment: lack of heat, a hole in the skylight, several flights of stairs, eccentric neighbors, and Corie's constantly visiting mother. Is this marriage built to last, or will the quirky challenges they encounter break them apart?

All performances are at Armstrong's Jenkins Hall Theater and begin at 7:30 p.m.

General admission: Only $10 for each show.
Discounts available to military, seniors, alumni association members, and students/children.
Armstrong students, faculty and staff admitted free of charge with valid PirateCard.
