SKITS play hopes to bring audience laughs

Comedy, deception, romance and a frustrated Ozark proprietor make the SKITS theatrical presentation “A Farce of Nature” an uproarious delight.

From the play’s opening scene to the final curtain, the production aims to keep audiences totally entertained with tons of laughs delivered by a talented and creative group of community actors.

This superbly written play, set in the Ozarks, is brought to comedic life by a wonderful mixture of veterans and three new actors — Andy Miller, Sue Klassen and Aimee Corley Spangenberg — who are displaying their talents for the first time in a SKITS production.

Aimee, the newest member of SKITS, is truly happy to be a member of the Shell Knob community.

“I have been in shows across the country and lived in New York City for 10 years pursuing a career in theater,” she said. “I’ve discovered that no matter where you are, you’ll always find like-minded people who get together and put on a show. I am thrilled that I’ve found the SKITS family and finally have people to ‘play’ with.”

SKITS Director Anne Hoffman is ecstatic about this spring presentation.

“It’s going to be absolutely fantastic,” she said. “It’s been a pure delight working with all the SKITS cast and crew and wow, this is going to be a great production.”

SKITS is following CDC guidelines and taking every precaution to ensure the safety of its patrons, volunteers and crew during the productions. Because of these restrictions, seating will be reduced for each performance. People will need to wear masks while moving around inside the church facility. However, people may remove them while seated.

Seasoned SKITS community patrons, occasional ones or those new to the area can come see the show on April 23 and 24 at 6:30 p.m. and April 25 at 2 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Shell Knob.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and children 12-and-under are free. Tickets can be purchased at Jug’n Plug, the Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce, Freedom Bank, Arvest Bank and online at
