“Amid a series of events bordering on farce, Garry has to deal with women who want to seduce him, placate both his long-suffering secretary and his wife, cope with a crazed young playwright, and overcome his impending mid-life crisis.”

Tickets are available online or at Bemidji’s Ken K. Thompson Jewelry or McKenzie Place. Concierge seating tickets are also available online.

Performance dates are 7 p.m. Sept. 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16, with matinees offered 2 p.m. Sept. 10 and 17.
