Charley's Aunt

November 26, 2011 - January 15, 2012 on the McGuire Proscenium Stage
Widely regarded as one of the most sensational and entertaining farces of all time, Charley's Aunt centers on two Oxford undergraduates in search of a chaperone for a proper visit from their girlfriends. Jack and Charley manage to persuade fellow undergraduate Fancourt "Babbs" Babberley to impersonate a millionaire aunt in this hilarious tale of young love and preposterous deception.

Don't miss this laugh-out-loud comedy this holiday season, a wildly entertaining escape to enjoy with friends or the whole family!

Run time: 2 hours 30 minutes including one intermission.
