On Stage – November 1


Curses, comedy rule in ‘Tuesdays With Mummy’

GREENFIELD — A rotating wall, an ancient curse and a variety of mummified pets are all part of KidsPlay children’s theatre’s production of “Tuesdays With Mummy.” The 90-minute show plays Nov. 2, 3 and 4 at the H.J. Ricks Centre for the Arts, 122 W. Main St. Ichthyologist Melville Rigby thinks he’s in Egypt to study fish, but instead finds himself in an Egyptian tomb. Accompanied by his unhelpful assistant Omar, a whiny girlfriend and her parents, a fortune teller who predicts his death and a mummy looking for someone to accompany him into the Netherworld, Rigby has 99 problems — and fish isn’t one of them. Tickets are available for $5 at Hometown Comics, 1040 N. State St., or at the door an hour before performance time. For more information, call 317-294-3087 or visit KidsPlay Inc. on Facebook.
