‘Golden Girls: The Laughs Continue’ coming to Collins Center in April

Miami’s sassiest seniors are coming to Orono for one night only in “Golden Girls: The Laughs Continue” on Tuesday, April 23 at the University of Maine Collins Center for the Arts.

This tribute stage show allows audiences to relive the heartfelt hilarity of the four ladies who never stopped being best friends. Sophia is out on bail after being busted by the DEA for running a drug ring for retirees. Blanche and Rose have founded CreakN, a thriving sex app for seniors. And Dorothy is trying to hold it all together with help from a new and much younger sex-crazed lover. 

The play, which is being performed in more than 40 cities nationwide, was written by Robert Leleux, author of  “The Memoirs of a Beautiful Boy” and “The Living End.” His work has also appeared in The New York Times and The New York Times Magazine and his other plays have been produced across the country. The show is directed by Eric Swanson, co-founder and executive director of The Detroit Actors’ Theatre Company. The cast includes Ryan Bernier as Dorothy, Vince Kelley as Blanche, Adam Graber as Rose, Christopher Kamm as Sophia and Jason Bowen as Stanley/Burt. The production is produced by Murray & Peter Present. 

Tickets will be available on the Collins Center website starting Jan. 26. For more information about the production, visit www.goldengirlstour.com. Follow “Golden Girls:
