The Desert Foothills Theater will present, “Leading Ladies” by Ken Ludwig, at its North Scottsdale Theater Feb. 8-17.

According to a press release, the show features two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors, played by Drew Armstrong and Cedric Knuth, who are relegated to performing “Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits” at Mooselodge functions, hitting rock bottom.

When they hear about a woman in New York, played by Ann Harper, looking to leave her fortune to her long lost nephews, they figure they are good enough actors to play the roles and win the fortune, the release detailed, describing the Shakespearean actors.

Performances of “Leading Ladies” begin at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, 9, 15, and 16 with matinee performances at 2 p.m. on Sundays, Feb. 10 and 17. Tickets range from $17 to $35.

“Theater-lovers of all ages will enjoy this funny performance,” says Tia Wooley, managing director of the Desert Foothills Theater, in a prepared statement. “We have a full line-up of events in 2019, sure to entertain and make our audiences laugh.”

Performances of “Leading Ladies” will be held in the Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Theater, 33606 N. 60th St., Scottsdale, with free parking.
