The Sun Lakes Community Theater is preparing a couple of laugh riots in the next two months.

Director Jo Birlin announced her choices for the cast of the upcoming comedy, “Sex Please We’re Sixty,” which will be presented in November.

The prim and proper bed and breakfast owner, Mrs. Stancliffe, will be played by Kathy Miller while her next-door neighbor, Bud “The Stud” Davis, will be portrayed by Mark Wenz, a newcomer to the theater troupe.

Mario Carranza has been cast as Mrs. Stancliffe’s would-be suitor, Henry Mitchell. Romance writer Victoria Ambrose will be performed by Ginger Henry. Henry Mitchell’s friend, Hillary Hudson, will feature another SLCT newcomer, Cari Scholes. Rounding out the cast as the lustful Charmaine Beauregard will be Kate King-Turner.

The play will run November 8-12 in the San Tan Ballroom, Cottonwood. Tickets will be on sale at starting Oct. 12. They also will be on sale in-person from 10 a.m.-noon Oct. 12 and Oct. 26 and in Room A6 in Cottonwood 10 a.m.-noon Oct. 13 and Oct. 27 in the lobby of Oakwood Country Club. Tickets are $20.

“The show promises to be a side-splitting comedy, so don’t miss out,” a spokeswoman said.

Meanwhile, the Sun Lakes Community Theater’s improvisation group, called the ImproVables, is planning a special Halloween dinner show 5:30 p.m. Oct. 28 at Cottonwood Country Club in the Saguaro Room.

The comedy troupe will perform skits and games based on the audience’s ideas and suggestions.

Dinner is included in the $25 ticket price and includes a Halloween buffet of “Halloweenies” (hot dogs with all the fixings), chili, house salad, and a special Halloween dessert. The cash bar will include a specialty drink: Bloody Marys.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., dinner begins at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. The evening’s fun includes a nightclub-style ambiance. Seating is limited.

The spokeswoman said the last ImproVables show in Cottonwood sold out quickly.

Tickets are available now at and at Cottonwood Palo Verde Homeowner Services.
