Laughter is on the menu at NKU Commonwealth Theatre Company’s productions over the summer

Commonwealth Theatre Company at Northern Kentucky University’s School of the Arts will present the Noël Coward comedy of “Fallen Angels,” and the farewell production of “Church Girls: The Musical.”

A buffet dinner will be served in the NKU SOTA Art Gallery with performances taking place in the NKU Robert & Rosemary Stauss Theatre.

Fallen Angels

By Sir Noël Coward

June 7-23

Before Julia and Jane married their husbands Fred and Willy – there was Maurice, a former French lover.

While the women’s blissfully ignorant husbands are away on a golf trip, he shows up and reminds them of what they might be missing. Following an evening of drunkenness and fevered anticipation, Julia and Jane become concerned that indiscretions from their past will be revealed, and comedic antics ensue. “Fallen Angels” is a sparkling, hilarious comedy about rivalry and manners, resulting in a champagne cocktail of wit and charm.

Church Girls: The Musical

By Ken Jones

Lyrics by Christine Jones

Music by Jamey Strawn

July 5-21

The “ladies” of Umatilla Second Christian Church Women’s Auxiliary League are back and producing their annual Mother’s Day pageant.

As the “church girls” prepare for their pageant, chaos and calamity bring out less than ‘saintly’ behavior. The result is Heaven sent hilarity. Making its farewell performance, “Church Girls: The Musical” is a campy, cheeky, audacious musical comedy that will hit your funny bone and keep you laughing.
