Casting Announced: SILENT LAUGHTER

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Wheaton Drama, Inc. (WDI) announces the cast for the next show in its 2018-2019 season, “Silent Laughter” by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore (“Love, Sex and the IRS,” “Confessions of a Dirty Blonde,” “The Senator Wore Pantyhose”).  An homage to the slapstick days of early silent movies, “Silent Laughter” is the story of Billy, a hapless schnook in New York, 1917.  Not just a retread of pie fights and pratfalls (although they are certainly present), “Silent Laughter”takes up the challenge of presenting death-defying Buster Keaton/Charlie Chaplin/Harold Lloyd style gags, with a bit of Laurel & Hardy and Musty Suffer.

“Silent Laughter” will run November 16 through December 9 at Wheaton Drama, 111 N. Hale Street, Wheaton, IL.  For reservations and information, go to www.WheatonDrama.org.

Director: Craig Gustafson  Production Manager: Elyse Willis.  Stunt Choreographer: Andrew Trygstad.
