A saucy senior farce hits the stage at the Manluk Theatre


This fall’s production of the comedy Sex Please We’re Sixty will leave audiences screaming with laughter.

Mrs. Stancliffe’s Bed and Breakfast guests return yearly and her neighbor “Bud the Stud” believes they come to spend time with him. Her other neighbour Henry has developed a pill to increase the libido of menopausal women. Add three mature women: a romance novelist, a friend of Henry’s and a Southern Belle — mix in some little blue pills and watch the fun begin!

Co-Directors Marlene Schoonmaker and Rick Bolstad worked their magic to bring these characters to life. Warning: Copious amounts of howling and laughter guaranteed! The cast features Miles Brunken as the brazen “Bud the Stud,” Maureen Pankiw as Mrs. Stancliffe, the proper and punctual owner of the Rose Cottage B&B, Ross MacGregor as thoughtful and caring Henry Mitchell. The female guests include Shauna Frechette as romance novelist Victoria Ambrose, Rhonda Meredith as Hillary Hudson, an old friend of Henry’s and rounding out the cast, Diane Fairhurst as Charmaine Beauregard, the quintessential southern belle.

The directors, cast and crew deliver a hilarious production that will keep the audience rolling in the aisles.
