Customer Comments:
By Michael Hill - Director - Nemaha Valley High School
Fashionably Late is a wonderful script and was perfect for my students. The script is witty and fun and has great characters for the students to work with.
By Michael Hill - Director - Nemaha Valley High School
We performed Fashionably Late as our fall production (Nov. 2010) and we a wonderful time with the show. There are great characters for the students to work with and the show has fantastic opportunities for students to develop their skills. We really enjoyed the show and it was well received by our audiences. I would recommend this show to high schools looking for something more current and relevant to the students.
By Lou Garza - Artistic Director
The show was relatively easy to direct even with a rather large cast. Witty script and well written with roles enjoyed by the cast.
By Zada Jahnsen - Corporate Manager - S.T.A.G.E., INC.!, Bulverede, Texas
One of the funniest shows ever in the thirty plus years of S.T.A.G.E., INC.!
By Joan Harrington - Patron - Garnett, KS - Letter to the Editor
I want to thank everyone who was in the play Fashionably Late by Gary Ray Stapp. I have never laughed so hard, never looked at my watch to see what time it was. It was funny from the beginning to the very end.
By Nancy Horn - Feature Writer - Anderson County Advocate
Fashionably Late is another smash hit for the Chamber Players as area theatre-goers were treated to another one of local playwright Gary Ray Stapp's comic productions presented to nine sold-out performances, which included an encore performance last Sunday evening. Stapp used his creative and imaginative talent, his trademark inevitable, unexpected surprise (or two), and a perfect cast to mold a most enjoyable and hilarious evening of entertainment.
It’s a get-it-while-you-can attitude in the world of fashion and no one knows that better than the staff of New York City fashion designer, Wade Haywood. So what do Charmaine, Meredith, and Harry do when the boss fails to show up for work? Not what you think! There’s no time for loafing when opportunity is knocking at the agency door, especially when one stranger shows up with the disturbing announcement that she’s been hired as a replacement, followed by the appearance of another stranger with a big wallet and a penchant for over-sized models. Suddenly, what started out as an ordinary day, becomes an afternoon of high jinx as brains, beauty, and brawn mix it up in a cross-dressing masquerade designed to fool a fashion industry guru, an IRS agent, and a Texas oil millionaire. But when the fooled wise-up to the foolish, good fortune quickly unravels at the seams and catastrophe of hilarious proportion looms on the edge of the fashion runway. And when secrets collide with good intentions, everyone learns that being fashionably late is better than never being fashionable at all.
