‘Guvnors’ calls community to theatre

The Vienna Theatre Company’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors premieres at 8 p.m. Friday, October 18, at the Vienna Community Center. Other performances will be staged at

8 p.m. October 19, 25, 26, and November 1 and 2. Matinee performances will be staged at

2 p.m. October 27 and November 3. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased online at viennava.gov/webtrac or in person at the Vienna Community Center.

The British comedy opened at the National Theatre's Lyttleton Theatre in 2011 and starred James Corden. Set in 1963 Brighton, Guvnors is the story an of out-of-work skiffle (a type of music with jazz, blues, and American folk influences) musician, Francis Henshall, who is separately and simultaneously employed by a gangster and an upper-class twit. Several complications add to the confusion and hilarity.

“With One Man, Two Guvnors we are trying to slowly bring back the slapstick, music-filled, rip-roaring productions that we used to do all the time,” says VTC president Eric Storck, who is doubling as director for the fall performances. “A key component to our success then was getting as many people from Vienna as possible to be involved.”
