Laugh Your Summer Off!

Join us for a hilarious farce & genuinely affectionate (not-so-far-from-the-truth) look into the world of theater.

Opening Friday, August 7th...and directed by the multi-talented, Jim Lund.
The “Laughing Stock” buzz is that the show is nonstop laughter. Featuring many of our local favorite actors, some even "playing themselves".  hmmmm...looking forward to THAT!

For those of you not familiar with the show, “Laughing Stock,” is a hilarious farce and a genuinely affectionate look into the world of theater. For many of us, we will relate as “The Playhouse,” a rustic New England summer theatre, attempts to produce a repertory season of Dracula, Hamlet, and Charley’s Aunt, comic mayhem ensues! Three shows in one year!? Can you imagine that undertaking!?

Join us as “Laughing Stock” gives the audience a rare backstage look (or reminder how WE look)  at the world of theater. It’s a place where there’s never enough time, staff, money and sometimes simply not enough talent or skill. A place where doors fall off their hinges, where sound cues run backwards, and where sometimes entrances are missed. But through it all, it’s a place where a cast becomes a family. 

“Laughing Stock” is filled with a genuine affection and respect for all those who make  theater their passion. 

Bring your theatre friends and those who fill their lives with with too much to do! “Laughing Stock” will take place at 7:30 PM at the Chaska Community Center Theater, 1661 Park Ridge Drive in Chaska, on August 7, 8, & 9 and again on August 13, 15, & 16. Tickets are $12 and are available online at or by calling 952 250-7206.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
