'Leading Ladies' continues at Lyric

Brownwood Bulletin
Church minister Duncan (center, played by Jake Lehrer) suspects two long-lost “nieces” who suddenly arrived in town are frauds, and he’s not wrong. Still, he can’t get the family to believe him. Aunt Florence (left, played by Suzi Harkey), is ailing, and upon her death, she will leave a $3 million fortune. This scene is from the Brownwood Lyric Theatre’s production of the Ken Ludwig comedy “Leading Ladies” that continues with a 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinee. At right is Meg (played by Keren Myers), who is engaged to Duncan and was previously the only known niece — and only known heir. Duncan’s suspicions are correct because the two “nieces” are actually two male itinerate actors looking for a big payday. Additional shows next weekend will be at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 8; at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 9; and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 10. Tickets to the show, directed by Darlyne Ervin, are $15 for adults and $10 for students. Seats may be reserved online at www.brownwoodlyrictheatre.com.
