Civic Theatre presents ‘Flaming Idiots’ April 26-29

The Clinton County Civic Theatre will perform “Flaming Idiots,” a play by Tom Rooney, Thursday - Sunday, April 26-29, at the Elizabeth O’Rear Skanta Theatre in the Frankfort Community Public Library.

Brian Nichols is the director for “Flaming Idiots,” a comedy featuring the characters of Carl and Phil, success seekers who have lots of entrepreneurial spirit but little commonsense to go with it.

The pair’s business startup, a gourmet health food restaurant, is failing so they decide to try boosting business by following the legacy of another local eatery – Zippy’s.

Zippy’s has been busy since an infamous mobster was shot there a couple of decades ago, so Carl and Phil get creative to see if they can’t stage a similar business building event. 

Tickets are $10 and can be ordered by calling 765-654-8746. Show times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 26, 27 and 29, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 29, at 2 p.m.
