The Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival is breaking from the Bard for a weekend to stage a sketch comedy revue from April 17-20 at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens. The event, called “Good Evening!”, pairs some of the best local improvisationalists with some of sketch comedy’s all-time best skits for an evening of shorts filled with laughter. Sketches from storied names like Monty Python, Carol Burnett and Dudley Moore will grace the stage with improv actors from Cheese and Crackers (Wally Lurz, Kyrs Parker, Seth Tucks and Zack Myers), the Jove Comedy Experience (Frank Kicari and Jesse Furman) and special guest Natasha Sherritt leading the rolls in these fast-paced scenes of hilarity.
- Showtimes are: April 17-20, Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
- Admission costs $15.
