Fountain Hills Theater is proud to announce the opening of the Woody Allen comedy “Play It Again, Sam”on April 1.

Allan Felix has this thing about Humphrey Bogart. If only he had some of Bogart’s technique… Bookish and insecure with women, Allan’s hero, Bogey comes to the rescue, with a fantastic bevy of beauties played out in hilarious fantasy sequences. Fixed up by friends with gorgeous women, he’s so awkward that even Bogey’s patience is tried. Allan comes to realize that it’s a tough life, making it in the world of beautiful people but if you can’t be a hero it helps to have one…

“Play It Again, Sam” opened on Broadway in 1969, starring the author Woody Allen who went on to repeat the role in the 1972 film of the same name, according to a press release. “Play It Again, Sam” is produced by Alisa Feugate and directed by Bob Feugate.
