Lakes Area Theatre (LAT) in Alexandria is offering the following productions this week:


The Rileys are at it again. Junior has made a date, his first, with a neighbor girl and now wants to cancel it. Peg and Chester both encourage him to keep the date, each in their own way. Chester's yelling does not help and Peg decides to relay how her first date went with Chester. Come hear if that helps Junior's case of nerves.

Directed by Mike Roers, the show stars Joe and Sue Korkowski, Daniel Roers, Joan Piotrowski, Gary Lund, Kip Sundlee and Mike Roers. Music is by Bob Piotrowski with sound effects performed by Lindsey Johnston.

The show takes place Friday, April 27 at 7 p.m. at Lakes Area Theatre, 2214 Geneva Road NE.


On Sunday, April 29 at 12:30 p.m. tune in to KXRA 1490 AM to meet Edwin Montague and his wife Lily Boheme, big stars of stage and screen.

Lily receives a phone call from a gal looking for Edwin who says, "Just tell Boo Boo that Foo Foo called and I'm at the Astor Hotel." With a lot of encouragement from their wiseracking maid, Agnes, Lily is convinced Edwin is up to no good.

Will Edwin ever convince Lily he is a faithful husband? Or will he be in the doghouse for good? Add a jealous husband who's a big mouthed Texan, a showgirl, a stretch limo, and a case of mistaken identity and the result is one lively comedy.

The Magnificent Montague: Boo Boo Foo Foo is directed by Betsy Ostenson and stars Jerrod Petersen, Dany Pederson, Samantha Olson, Tim Ray, Alaine Risbrudt, Michelle Toso and Curt Ostenson. The music is by Arlyn Swenson, Jay Johnson, Bryan Poyzer and Wally Warhol.
