“The Play’s The Thing,” P. G. Wodehouse’s adaptation of Ferenc Molnar’s 1920’s comedy, will be presented by Actors’ Circle Theatre at the Peterborough Players theater today through Saturday.

The play is about a lovely young starlet of the stage, Ilona, played by Clare Margand of Richmond, caught in a flirtatious tete-a-tete with an aging actor, Almady, played by Scott Gardner of Rindge, and how the situation is rectified, in order to protect her honor and the heart of her betrothed.

The cast includes Peter Eisenstadter as Turai, the solver of all stage scandals; Bryan Hebert of Antrim as Mell, the Count’s rattled secretary; Madeleine Sepe and Ruth Linehan, both of Peterborough, as the lovely Lackeys; and three newcomers to A.C.T. — Jonathan Flower as Mansky, Turai’s lifelong collaborator; Chris Pratt as Dwornitschek, the fastidious footman; and Mason Amadeus as Adam, the addled-love-of-Ilona.

The crew consists of A.C.T. veterans Mia Moravis of Francestown and Keene as director and producer; Chris McCartie, set design; Lisa Perreault of Francestown, lighting and sound design; Veda Crewe, costume designer; Madeleine Sepe of Peterborough, stage manager; and Ruth Linehan of Peterborough, assistant set and costume designer.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. for all performances.

Tickets are $15 for general admission, and $12 for students and seniors.

Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 924-3876, or by visiting www.actorscircletheatre.org.
