LPA presents “Million Dollar Meatballs”

On Friday, Nov. 13 and Sunday, Nov. 15, the members of Liberty Performing Arts will present “Million Dollar Meatballs”, a classical farce by Todd Wallinger. Both performances begin at 7:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium. The cost of the tickets is $8.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and seniors citizens.

Get ready for a comedy of epicurean proportions! Two bumbling jewel thieves are on the run from the cops when they duck into Chez Monyeu, a restaurant so bad the mice are their only repeat customers. And that’s just the start of their problems. Not only has Chez Monyeu’s chef just quit, but the city’s most powerful restaurant critic is about to arrive. In desperation, the restaurant’s owner, mistaking the thieves for famous French chefs, insist that they make their renowned Million Dollar Meatballs for the tough-minded critic. Insanity ensues as the pair try to keep up the ruse while hunting for the seven priceless diamonds they lost. Will the thieves get away with their crime? Where could the diamonds have gone? And why are the meatballs so crunchy? Find out in this deliciously funny farce!
