Letter: A pitch for ‘Hotel LaPutts’
Readers might have trouble finding out about the world premiere of Hotel LaPutts, a farce written and directed by Wallace J. Pineault, a retiring theater professor at New England College and award winning director. The show is about how the eccentric La Putts family, desperately scrambling to keep their family business from foreclosure, becomes personally involved with a notorious drug cartel. Think Abbott and Costello in the middle of The Pink Panther.
People may have spotted the advertisement placed by the presenters, Community Players of Concord, New Hampshire, the oldest community theater company in the state, but there was no article or photos about it.
To get that they would have had to have gone to Nashua, where the Telegraph ran a two-page spread. Or read the Concord Patch online. It would be nice to be recognized by our hometown newspaper. Perhaps that will be rectified before the last performance on Sunday. The calendar listings were also rather confusing. It was listed under theater at the Concord City Auditorium, but under comedy for Capitol Center of the Arts.
So to set the record straight, it is both hilarious theater and theatrical comedy, but it can only be seen at the Concord City Auditorium on 2 Prince St. today and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door several hours before the shows or you can get them online by going to communityplayersofconcord.org.
