How fortunate are we to have ready access to the finest comic live threatre—Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals. This year’s 168th production is entitled: “HPT168: That 1770’s Show”. We have 60 prime seats to the performance at 8 PM on Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 at the Hasty Pudding Theatre, 12 Holyoke Street, Cambridge, just outside Harvard Square (the closest T stop is Harvard Square on the Red Line). Tickets are $26 per seat and our seats will be in the front three rows. About this year’s production: It’s 1775 and it’s no tea party in Boston. After spoiled little brat Anne Heritance demands that her pushover father Govenor Bucky Hampalace raises taxes yet again, the colonists are yankee doodle done with British rule. With the help of the govenor’s new gold-digging wife Mae Flower and hunky fur-trapper Seymour Beavers, the colonists plot to kidnap the little brat and send her back to England for a permanent tea-time-out. However when the colonists run into delusional sailor Ahab Bitualliar, who has followed a mysterious giant fish into Boston Hahbah, they discover they may have a bigger fish to fry. Will sea monster Codzilla exact revenge on the colonists for murdering his kin or will he become their catch of the day? Will fiery seamstress Betsy Gloss find a way to trim taxes down to size or will recovering alcoholic Benjamin Dranklin drown in booze and tears? Don’t tread on these colonists as they persue life, liberty, and happiness in “HPT 168: That 1770’s Show!!!” Tickets will sell quickly, so make your reservation NOW! The cut-off date is February 12th, 2016. The unsold tickets, if any, will be turned back to HPT on that date. You will be treated to a memorable, humorous, and totally enjoyable world-famous performance that will have you laughing heartily!!! And all of this enjoyment is only $26.
