The Sun Lakes Community Theatre (SLCT) presents “Aspirin & Elephants,” by Jerry Mayer. A talented playwright, he also wrote for TV and some of our favorite shows including MASH and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Our delightful romantic comedy highlights the fascinating dynamics and challenges of family life and how family issues are often resolved. All this takes place on a luxury family cruise from Copenhagen to St. Petersburg which is full of surprises.

Penny Petersen directs an outstanding cast and creative crew. This will truly be a fun event. Penny is one of our most experienced directors. She earned a master’s degree in Theatre from ASU, has taught acting and theatre production, written four plays and directed more than 50 plays. Recently, she was among the impressive list of Sun Lakes Community Theatre (SLCT) members recognized for years of service and commitment.
