This summer, co-artistic Director of Playhouse on Park Darlene Zoller returns with SAY THINGS FUNNY, an original production celebrating the legendary entertainer Carol Burnett on July 30 and 31 at 7:30pm. Tickets are now on sale for this production at only $20, all seats reserved.
Every Saturday evening for over 10 years, families gathered around the television to enjoy the many talents of the one and only Carol Burnett. Outrageous comedic sketches, musical numbers and elaborate costumes were just a few of the reasons people tuned in week after week.
SAY THINGS FUNNY is a celebration of Carol and the lasting impression she left on all of us. This show, being presented for two days only, is a work in progress and its creators look forward to developing it further with the help of our audience feedback.
