Tech school presenting two comedies

Thursday, March 08, 2018

TURNERS FALLS — The Franklin County Technical School Players are set to present two shows that prove comedy is not a crime.

On Friday and Saturday, “A Night of Comedy with the FCTS Players” will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Shea Theater, at 71 Avenue A in Turners Falls.

Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens and $7 for adults.

Tickets can be reserved at Franklin County Technical School, at 87 Industrial Boulevard in Turners Falls, or by calling Daniel Prasol, the production’s director, at 413-863- 9561, ext. 233.

The two productions FCTS Players will perform are “Good Cop/Bad Cop” by Ian McWethy and Jason Pizzarello and “21 Guaranteed Ways to Get Detention” by McWethy.

In “Good Cop/Bad Cop,” a catastrophic street sign switcheroo has two rookie detectives grilling a motley crew of suspects and witnesses. Everyone from the high school mascot to a guy who may be Super Mario is pumped for information, and while these suspicious characters are combative, ridiculous and downright incompetent, none of them seems guilty. With the clock ticking and their jobs on the line, can this good cop and bad cop collar a suspect before it’s too late?

In “21 Guaranteed Ways to Get Detention,” the principal of McKinley Grove High School and her two new assistants are forbidden from giving out more than 20 detentions a year. But, the student body breaks the rules in such ridiculous ways they might hit the maximum in one day.

In this comedy, you’ll meet the world’s most obvious cheater, a ruthless Girl Scout cookie mogul, the captain of the Cat Football League and many more in this barrage of bad behavior.
