Comedy Tonight At The Reedley Opera House

IN THE August 21 ISSUE

Reedley’s River City Theatre Company has its sequel to last year’s Funny Farm hitting the stage this weekend. “Comedy Tonight is our brand new, side-splitting sequel to last season’s popular Funny Farm,” said Erik Valencia, head of publicity for RCTC. “This year’s production will include standup comedy and musical entertainment combined.”

Erik didn’t want to give away the details of what they have in store this time and encourages people to come and be surprised. There will be some familiar RCTC faces such as Denise Norwood, Jacob Alvarado and Stephanie Barnett–among some newer faces.

When asked how directing this show is different from their usual plays and musicals, artistic director Mark Norwood stated that every play presents different challenges. “Constructing a framework around the standup acts, coming up with order, and then exploring the growth of the show during rehearsals as well as editing and adding material are some of the challenges with Comedy Tonight.”

Comedy Tonight is presented by RCTC at the Reedley Opera House on August 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, 31. Tickets can be purchased on their website. Erik encourages everyone to come out and enjoy a fun night of comedy!
