Sedona International Film Festival
Assisted Living: The Musical
November 14th – 17th, 2013
Laughter fills the air in Sedona, Arizona this week with the live performances of Assisted Living: The Musical, starting today, November 14th through the 17th at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre! Let’s face it, we are all going to get older, why not have a few good laughs about it!
“Assisted Living: The Musical” returns to Sedona by popular demand after four sold-out performances last May. It will be performed by its authors Rick Compton and Betsy Bennet, who are currently doing a national tour of the production. This outrageous, live theatrical encore event is the perfect way to laugh your way into the upcoming holiday season!
“Our audiences were in hysterics for every production last May! It is a laugh-riot from start to finish. We had people begging us to bring it back so they could see it a second time and bring their friends. It is outrageous to see these two actors play 18 roles.” – Sedona Festival Director Patrick Schweiss.
“Assisted Living: The Musical”,subtitled “Sex, Drugs and Gettin’ Old”, delivers laughs from the opening scene. A newly-departed couple is greeted in the afterlife not by Elvis, but by Tiny Tim. The show romps through the “best years of their lives” at Pelican Roost, an active senior living community. The place oozes with characters who each have unique answers to later-life’s questions.
“Imagine a world in which no one expects you to work, no one can get pregnant, and where you get a 20% discount just for being alive,” Betsy Bennett says. “That’s Assisted Living.”
There will be four performances of “Assisted Living: The Musical”: Thursday, November 14th at 4:00 pm, Friday and Saturday, November 15th and 16th at 7:00 pm and a special Sunday matinee November 17th at 2:00 pm. Tickets for this special event are $25 for general admission and $20 for Film Festival members. Full-time student tickets are $15. If you are a guest of the Best Western PLUS Inn of Sedona we will be more than happy to drop you off and pick you up from this event in our Complimentary “About Town” Sedona Shuttle.
