West Side Performing Arts presents a one man show, starring Tim Behrens in, “A Fine and Pleasant Misery,” Friday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. at the Dahle Performing Arts Center, 800 N. Westside Highway, Dayton.
Behrens will tell the story of Patrick F. McManus and 12 zany characters, from Rancid Crabtree to daft old Mrs. Swisher, from Strange the Dog to a deer on a bicycle.
Tickets are available at the West Side District office or online at wssd.k12. id.us. The cost of admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students and $30 per family.
Come join Pat and his sidekick, Crazy Eddie Muldoon, as they try to conquer their fear of the dark so they can become mountain men. Watch Rancid Crabtree convince you that baths are bad because soap and water will eat holes in your protective crust. Listen as Pat explains how to execute a proper full-bore linear panic and its cousin, modified stationary panic. See Mr. and Mrs. Muldoon react to Pat and Crazy Eddie’s airplane as it teeters on the barn roof headed straight towards oblivion. And learn how not to hunt your first deer with nothing more than a bicycle.
The McManus Comedies are family friendly, hilarious stories about growing up in rural America when you’re dirt poor (dirt being the only toy you can afford) and when the adults in your life get nervous every time they pass you on the street.
McManus is one of the most popular humor writers in the country. His 23 titles have sold more than six million copies and five of his collections of short humor have made the top 10 of the New York Times bestseller’s list.
The West Side Performing Arts Committee wishes to thank the F.M., Anne G., and Beverly B. Bistline Foundation Philanthropic Gift Fund for their generous support of this performance.
