The Hardin County Performance Series and the Hardin County Arts and Culture Endowment Fund, are bringing hilarity to the Iowa Falls-Alden High School at 7 p.m. April 25 in the form of Groucho Marx.
Award-winning actor/director/playwright Frank Ferrante recreates his PBS, New York and London acclaimed portrayal of legendary comedian Groucho Marx in this fast paced 90 minutes of hilarity. The two-act comedy consists of the best Groucho one-liners, anecdotes and songs including "Hooray For Captain Spalding," and "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady." The audience literally becomes part of the show as Ferrante ad-libs his way throughout the performance in grand Groucho style.
Accompanied by his onstage pianist, Ferrante portrays the young Groucho of stage and film and reacquaints us with the likes of brothers Harpo, Chico, Zeppo and Gummo, Charlie Chaplin, W.C. Fields, Greta Garbo, Marx foil, Margaret Dumont and MGM's Louis B. Mayer. The HCPS committee is committed to bringing family entertainment to Hardin County and this production is definitely a show perfect for all ages.
Thanks to the continued support of HCPS patrons, the Hardin County Arts and Culture Endowment Fund and show attendees, the Hardin County Performance Series continues to bring incredible live entertainment like An Evening With Groucho to our area.
