For its 30th anniversary, Bardstown Community Theatre announces the opening of the romantic comedy, “The Faery’s Kiss” (also known as “The Haunted Cottage”). The show made its worldwide debut in 2009, and has been produced in the US and Canada – with rave reviews. The show’s playwright and international director, Bill Breuer, has agreed to direct it himself. Actors will include many familiar Bardstown and Nelson County area residents, as well as new faces from the area, and veteran performers from Bullitt County and Louisville. The show will run the last two weekends of May, with performances to held in the historic theater at Kreso’s Restaurant, 218 North 3rd Street, Bardstown, home of BCT’s annual Mid-Winter Feaste for so many years.
“The Faery’s Kiss” is a “fairy tale, romantic comedy for adults, although children ages 8 and above can certainly enjoy it,” said international playwright and director, Bill Breuer. “I’m excited that it will be performed in Bardstown by a company that has a history of producing quality entertainment since 1982, in a community that obviously enjoys and supports live theatre. I’m honored to have been asked to direct it as well.”
This story is about a bachelor who inherits a rural coastal cottage. Everyone says the place is haunted – but instead he finds the place is inhabited by an attractive woman who claims to be a Faery – and she doesn’t want him there. She keeps his head in a spin as he endeavors to fit in with the townspeople, a quirky lot who are mistrustful of strangers and may have secrets to conceal. The self-proclaimed Faery is also trying to protect a secret that others are trying to steal – including an unscrupulous lawyer and a seductress. Things are not always what they seem, and surprises arise as the story unfolds.
The play is being produced by Bardstown Community Theatre, in partnership with Kreso’s Restaurant & WBRT Hometown Country 1320 AM.
