    Theatre Palisades Presents Its Winning Stage Play

     

    Community Service

    By Lance Johnson

    for its

    7TH ANNUAL PALISADES PLAYWRIGHTS FESTIVAL

    A Staged Reading

    With Costumes, Stage Movement, and Soundtrack

     

    Directed by Sherry Coon

     

    An irascible judge in a rundown 1947 New York City courtroom sentences six people to perform community service in Central Park in this delightful ensemble play with a touch of Miracle on 34th Street, a dash of It’s a Wonderful Life, and a pinch of How to Succeed in Business.

    Actual 1940s radio commercials, music, and news broadcasts add to the colorful blending of Runyonesque humor, early Broadway nostalgia, the era’s lingo and dress styles, and themes as pertinent today as they were in those emerging post-war years.

    “The story is charming in an ‘old-fashioned way’ – and not simply because it’s set in 1947. The dialogue is terrific.” – Dan Berkowitz, Co-Chair, Association of Los Angeles Playwrights
