Stage Coach Players Presents the 1950’s Television Era Neil Simon-Style

When Curt Helgren, a Rochelle resident, decided to expand his theatrical horizons to the east, he surely wasn’t thinking “Eastern Block,” but, come June 1, 2017, you will find him transformed into Val, a quick-witted, sharp-tongued, Russian émigré working in the writers’ room of a fictional comedy variety show in “Laughter on the 23rd Floor,” a play written by Neil Simon and directed by Bernie Schuneman for the Stage Coach Players in DeKalb.

Set in 1953, “Laughter on the 23rd Floor” follows the harried, foul-mouthed writing staff of the fictional “Max Prince Show” – a show that bears a strong resemblance to Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows” – as they frantically scramble to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of the show’s star madman, Max Prince. Prince is being pressured to dumb-down his show to broaden the appeal and is battling the network and counting on his writing staff to keep the show smart and afloat.

Neil Simon worked as a writer for Sid Caesar’s variety-comedy series and is clearly represented in the production by Lucas (Tom Stark), the new guy looking to become a permanent part of the team. In addition to Val and Lucas, there is the resident hypochondriac, Ira (Greg Anderson); the gag man, Milt (Jeff Heider); the heavy smoker with a caustic, biting sense of humor Brian (Dan Hyde); the intelligent and sophisticated writer, Kenny (David Booth); and Carol (Sara Pajor), the only woman writer on the show who is tough and irreverent but concerned about accusations of Communist sympathies. Max (Larry Rapach), who is often accompanied by his secretary Helen (Madison Bishop) knows he has one of the greatest writing staffs in television, but is very aware that network doesn’t care.

“Laughter on the 23rd Floor” is a laugh-out-loud comedic drama peppered with profanity, tension and the gritty reality behind the polish in the golden age of television. “Ozzie and Harriet” it is not.

Performances run June 1-4 and 9-11, at 7:30 p.m. (Thurs., Fri., and Sat.) and 2:00 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $15.00 and $13 for children 12-years-old and under or seniors at least 65 years of age. They are available by calling 815-758-1940 or can be purchased online at www.stagecoachers.com.  The Stage Coach Players’ theater is located at 126 South Fifth Street in DeKalb.

NORTHWESTERN MEDICINE BEN GORDON CENTER RECEIVES GRANT

Northwestern Medicine Ben Gordon Center was the recipient of the DeKalb County Community Foundation’s Community Needs Grant. The $20,000 grant will be used to update the interior space of the facility and will contribute to the Therapeutic Environment Project. The Therapeutic Environment Project is intended to create a physical space that mirrors the healing and recovery oriented services that Ben Gordon Center provides. Northwestern Medicine Ben Gordon Center wants to make a positive first impression and create a welcoming environment for patients, families, and friends.

“Stemming from the belief that it takes just three seconds for someone to register a negative impression, the design of a mental health facility has a direct impact on the beliefs, expectations, and perceptions our clients have about themselves, the staff, and the care they will receive,” said Kim Volk, director of Northwestern Medicine Behavioral Health Services. “Thank you to the DeKalb County Community Foundation for providing these funds.”
