Mainstage: AN ALMOST PERFECT PARTY by Buck Busfield

As part of B Street's commitment to produce original holiday shows, AN ALMOST PERFECT PARTY marks the Theatre's 12th world premiere for the holidays. Styled after British Farce, AN ALMOST PERFECT PARTY follows the efforts of Kipling Pilliker who, mired in a custody battle with his estranged wife, tries to provide his young son, Percy, with the perfect Christmas.

In the tradition of farce, Pilliker'sefforts become more frantic and desperate and his perfect plan unravels perfectly. AN ALMOST PERFECT PARTY will feature a large cast of B Street Acting Company members: Michael Stevenson (Pilliker), Stephanie McVay (Miss Gilloway), David Pierini (Benny Cohn), John Lamb (Fid), Peter Story (Ginger), Kurt Johnson (Connie Cone) and Greg Alexander (Brisbane-Koheed).

B-3 Series: ENTERTAINING MR. SLOANE by Joe Orton.

The second offering of the 2009-2010 B-3 Series is a contemporary classic of British theater by England's edgiest playwright of the 1960's. ENTERTAINING MR. SLOANE bounces from the lascivious to the ludicrous when lonesome landlady Kath rents young Sloan a room. Unfortunately, Kath's amorous intentions are foiled by none other than her brother, and Sloan's random appetite for murder.

ENTERTAINING MR. SLOANE will feature B Street Acting Company members Jamie Jones (Kath), Jason Kuykendall (Ed) and David Silberman (Kemp). The role of Sloan will be played by Bay Area actor Chad Deaverman. Alan McKelvey directs.
