(BEACH HAVEN, NJ) -- Surflight Theatre continues their 2023 Season with the energetic romp full of impressions, wit, and charm, Popcorn Falls, from September 27 through October 1, 2023. Welcome to Popcorn Falls, a small American town whose only claim to fame-their namesake waterfall-has dried up. Now bankrupt, their last chance is a large grant that can only be used if the town produces a play in a week.
The town has two big problems: no playhouse and no play. Led by the Mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising townsfolk try to prove that art can save the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference. This is a feel good show with laugh out loud comedic genius.
Popcorn Falls stars Danny Crowe (Most recently seen as Jacob Goldman in Surflight’s Grumpy Old Men: The Musical and Chad in Disaster!) as Actor 1, and Patrick Halley (who has been seen Off-Broadway and at many of the country’s major resident theaters) as Actor 2.
Performances take place Wednesday, September 27 at 2:00pm & 7:30pm; Thursday, September 28 at 2:00pm & 7:30pm' Friday, September 29 at 7:30pm; Saturday, September 30 at 7:30pm; and Sunday, October 1 at 2:00pm. Tickets are $43 for Adults/Seniors; and $33 for Children 12 and Under. Tickets are available for purchase online.
