MountainBrook Village Theatre returns with comedy Feb. 25-28

Yes, it’s time to lower the lights, open the curtain, light up the stage and enjoy a performance of “Where There’s A Will There’s A Relative,” a comedy in two acts by Roger Karshner.
The play will be performed at 7 p.m. Feb. 25-28 on the Superstition Center stage in MountainBrook Village, three blocks north of U.S. Highway 60 on MountainBrook Drive in Gold Canyon, across from the golf course.
The comedy takes place in Sam Price’s townhouse. Sam, a wealthy entrepreneur has just recently passed away and at his request, has been laid out in his townhouse. With the corpse in the bedroom his immediate family — sister, brother, nephew and niece — have gathered to discuss their inheritances, a meeting that descends into acrimony over the division of property.
Much to their chagrin, they learn that Sam has left his entire estate to the church, a discovery that results in them reluctantly seeking the advice from Tony, a person they deem to be of unsavory moral character but who knows angles. His advice seemingly solves their dilemma until they realize that the solution involves compromise. Many reversals drive a story that comically reveals avarice, mistrust and chicanery.
This will be the 14th annual play performed by the MountainBrook Village Theatre. It play is co-directed by Merry Brennan and Kathy Whitacre, who co-directed for the first time last year’s play and discovered their flair for creativity, imagination and inspiration.
They so enjoyed designing the set, shaping the actors characters and witnessing the actors and the play come to life on stage that they just had to do it again.
The cast consists of three female and three male roles. New to the MountainBrook stage are Kathy Buelow who plays Zelda, Karleen Huffman who plays cousin Sally and Jim Mosier who plays Uncle Jerry.
Ms. Buelow’s credits include Ethel in “Moon Over Buffalo” and Bea in “Dr. Cook’s Garden” as well as costume design and stage manager. The American Association of Community Theatre honored her with an outstanding actor award in 2011.
Ms. Huffman has performed on stage in group numbers and dance sequences and actively involved in theater in behind-the-scenes work and as head costumer. Mr. Mosier is making his first on-stage theatrical role since dance sequences in his college years.
Veteran actors at MountainBrook Village who appear in this play are Dick Brennan in his 14th play, Pat Hardie in her second play and Bill Wash in his eighth play. Vinny De Paul of Apache Junction will play the deceased Sam Price.
Reserved seating tickets are $10 each and include refreshments at intermission. Tickets can be purchased at the MountainBrook Village activity office, which is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday, or at the door prior to each evenings performance
