The Mantorville Theatre Company's 41st Summer Melodrama Season continues with our fourth production, "One Bad Apple" or "Rotten to the Core!" The show opens on Friday, Aug. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mantorville Opera House, and runs Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30, and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m., through Sept. 15.
Our story opens in find the parlor of the Blossom Apple Farm, close to harvest time. Cherry Blossom is busily getting ready for visiting royalty. A certain Baron Von Fritter, from Germany, is coming to inspect her apples to see if they are good enough for his famous strudel. The Baron arrives with his personal secretary, Herr Schnitzel, but John (Cherry's boyfriend) mistrusts the Baron's motives. And, since he is enrolled at "The Sherlock Holmes Detective School," John starts an investigation! It appears that the Baron is a phony-but what happens when real royalty arrives?
In the meantime, love blossoms between Herr Schnitzel and the farm's old maid neighbor, Prudence Newit...thus, giving this play a double love story and double the fun!
This is one of many favorites penned by Sandra Hennings Miller, and the Mantorville Theatre Company is pleased to have her return to direct it for you. Our cast features the acting talents of Miss Mikala Metzger, Ms. Laurel A. Panser, Missy Mills of Rochester, Ben Peters of Kasson, Dan Peters of Kasson, Cindy Saunders of Byron, Jacob Quam of Byron, Harry Coleman of Kasson and features the talents of Mr. Levi Livingood of Dodge Center on the piano.
