Nothing is Sacred in “Incorruptible” at MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre March 4-13

2/3/05

The setting is a monastery circa 1250 A.D. where the monks are having some serious money troubles. “Incorruptible,” a light comedy about the Dark Ages, is coming to MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre. Like 40 Productions presents this witty farce about religion in medieval times on Fridays and Saturdays, Mar. 4, 5, 11, and 12 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Mar. 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer’s West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road. An opening night reception follows the Mar. 4 performance to give audience members a chance to meet the cast and crew.

Incorruptible’s ragtag group of monks is in a desperate state. The enshrined skeleton of the monastery's patron saint has not worked a miracle in 13 years. Without miracles, the abbey is no longer a popular pilgrim destination, hence no longer the recipient of generous donations. All seems lost until a cunning one-eyed minstrel suggests an outrageous new way to pay old debts. Michael Hollinger's 1996 comedy has been applauded as a lightening fast satire that is rich in both verbal and physical humor.

“Incorruptible” features a talented cast of comic actors: Mark Flicker is Charles, Dan Spalluto is Brother Martin, David Maurio is Jack, Glen Calhoun is Brother Olf; Melissa Abrahams is a peasant woman, Joyce LaBriola is Marie, M. Kitty Getlik is Agatha, and Doug Edelson is Brother Felix. Brian Bara is the show’s director.

Tickets are $12 for adults; and $10 for seniors, students and children. Free parking is available next to the theatre. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-584-9444. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible and provides assisted listening devices upon request.  For a complete listing of adult and children’s events, visit the Kelsey webpage or call the box office for a brochure.
