Amana – "Eight doors, two police officers and three criminals add up to one crazy police stakeout in Unnecessary Farce, opening Thursday, Sept. 5 on The Old Creamery Theatre’s Main Stage in Amana.

Officers Eric and Billy are supposed to videotape a meeting between the mayor and his accountant during an investigation of missing city funds. However, nothing goes as it should and it becomes impossible to determine who the real criminals might be or for that matter, what might happen next. This play is so much fun it should be illegal!

Written by Paul Slade Smith, Unnecessary Farce is directed by Marc Libby of Kansas City with the cast consisting of Jeff Haffner of Cleveland, Ohio, Deborah Kennedy of West Amana, Richard Marlatt of Chicago, Jackie McCall of Marengo, Hannah Spina of Cedar Rapids, Dion Stover of Chicago and Sean McCall of Marengo.
