Wichita Community Theatre Presents "Charley's Aunt"
Wichita Community Theatre continues its 2020-2021 Season with CHARLEY'S AUNT by Brandon Thomas. This classic comedy runs February 25-March 7 at 258 N. Fountain.
In 1890 two Oxford students, Charley Wyckham and Jack Chesney, want to propose marriage to two lovely young women. The proper young ladies will not visit the young men without a chaperone. Charley's aunt from Brazil is expected to arrive but when she does not, the boys must do some quick thinking.
Enter their rascally friend and fellow student Babbs Babberley, trying on an old ladies costume for the varsity play. The boys blackmail him into posing as Charley's aunt. This ruse sets in motion a series of shenanigans...culminating with the arrival of Charley's real aunt!
