‘No-Frills Revue’ features skit comedy

Amanda Kornak, Correspondent

The Wilkes University Theater department is presenting “The No-Frills Revue,” which is set up like a comedy club with the feeling of being at a “Saturday Night Live” type of performance.
The show opens Feb. 14, 2014, just in time for Valentine’s Day, and runs for two weekends.  Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 p.m., and there will be a 2 p.m. matinée both Sundays.
“I think the audience will like it because it can relate to all ages,” Amanda Thomas, a junior musical theater major, said. “There are some skits that relate to important historical events that the older members of the audience will relate to more. There are also skits that would relate more to today’s college crowd with different celebrity jokes and TV show references.”
“The No-Frills Revue” has many different elements that make it a performance sure to entertain anyone who likes to laugh. Without a serious plot line, the show relies on its musical numbers, comedy skits and satires related to everyday life, history and pop culture to captivate the audience.
The show will be at the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center at South and River streets in Wilkes-Barre.  To reserve tickets, call the Darte Canter box office at 570-408-4540.
