Polite Ink. Sketch & Improv will present a 1920s-themed comedy show, “Gatsby the Great,” at 7 p.m. on April 6 at Cobblestone Theatre, 1622 state Route 332, Farmington.
A pre-show reception at 6 p.m. will include wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres before the doors open at 6:30 p.m. The show is rated PG.
“Gatsby the Great” features original characters and audience participation. PI will explore the age of jazz, flappers and Prohibition laws. Babe Ruth will be there to shoot for the fences, a silent live action “movie” will take center stage and Al Capone will make a cameo.
“At ‘Gatsby the Great,’ the audience can expect to see spontaneous, improvised scenes based on their suggestions, as well as original, troupe-written sketches inspired by the 1920s,” said director Karen Craft, of Fairport.
PI is the in-house comedy troupe at the Multi-use Community Cultural Center in Rochester. The ensemble includes Corrie Spike Carter, of Fairport; Michael Anthony, Bolan Graham and Reuben Tapp, of Rochester; and Don Beechner, of Spencerport. “Gatsby the Great” will feature Rochester actors Philip Frey and Kiyomi Oliver.
