Skagit Valley College Drama Department presents, THE COCOANUTS adapted by the Marx Brothers
The Skagit Valley College Drama Department presents The Marx Brothers smash hit, THE COCOANUTS, in the Phillip Tarro Theatre. Music by Irving Berlin, book by George S. Kaufman.
The SVC Marx Brothers, Chico, Harpo, Zeppo and Groucho, are featured in this gag-filled musical featuring jazz-age gems by Irving Berlin. Pull up a chair in Groucho’s flea bag Florida hotel, as he attempts to hawk worthless real estate to gullible Northerners. As always, Groucho is looking for love (and money) in a rich heiress while she is looking for a match for her daughter, and her daughter has fallen for Groucho’s hotel clerk. Harpo and Chico, both pick pockets, roll into town to steal (and eat) everything that is not nailed down. Adapted and restored to the stage by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, this vaudeville spectacular is sure to please.
Performances will take place in SVC’s Phillip Tarro Theatre on January 24, 25, 30, 31 @ 7:30pm; February 1, 6, 7, 8 @ 7:30pm; February 2 and 9 @ 2pm. For information, visit Skagit Valley College Drama on Facebook.
