Theater tonight: “Age Only Matters …” in Fauntleroy; WSHS play

(Video and photo by Ellen Cedergreen for WSB)
Three more stage productions in our area this weekend (in addition to ArtsWest‘s ongoing “Emilie“) – and two of them open tonight. “Age Only Matters if You’re Cheese” – the romance/musical co-created by 90-year-old Yvonne Belshaw, featured here earlier this week – starts a three-show run at Fauntleroy Church, and the Saturday matinee is already sold out. We dropped in on last night’s dress rehearsal; that’s Shellie Moomey and Jenny Mandt in the video above – they star along with Kevin Finney:

As of last night, some tickets remained for the performances at 7:30 pm tonight and Saturday – call 932-5600 – any tickets that remain will be sold at the door, but there’s no guarantees. (1:44 PM UPDATE: Tonight’s show is now sold out, but call to ask about Saturday night.)

HIGH-SCHOOL PLAYS: Two schools have crime comedies on deck. Tonight West Seattle High School‘s Drama Club opens a three-night run of the student-directed “A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody,” 7:30 pm, tickets $7 with reservations (call 206-252-8834) or $12 at the door … Tomorrow night the Chief Sealth International High School After-School Drama Club presents “The Real Inspector Hound,” 7 pm in the Little Theater, admission free.

    Just saw this wonderful show. I highly recommend it. The music and lyrics are worthy of 5th ave. The story is very sweet and brought a tear of happiness to my eye. Even though they say it’s sold out go anyway. There were some empty seats and it’s worth it see if they will allow standing. Congrats to the cast, crew, musicians, Yvonne Belshaw and Bronwyn Edwards Cryer. Well done!
