The Port Polson Players are honoring the late Neil Simon at their upcoming show.

Simon, “The Master of Broadway Comedy,” died in August 2018. The Polson Players will perform the comedic masterpiece ‘The Sunshine Boys’ July 5-14.

The show was nominated for a Tony award for Best Play, with critics saying, “The show glitters like fireworks on the Fourth of July.”

Lewis and Clark, also known as The Sunshine Boys, were a successful Vaudeville comedy duo. During the later years of their 43-year run, they stopped speaking to each other.

Clark, now an old man, reluctantly accepts an offer to reunite the team for a CBS special on the history of comedy.

Laughter abounds as they recreate their classic Doctor Sketch, which ends in chaos. The play’s wrap-up is pure Simon, mixing humor, wisdom on poignancy.

Tickets, which cost $19, $18 for senior citizens and students are available by by calling 406-883-9212 or at PortPolsonPlayers.com.

Curtain is at 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Group rates are available at Polson’s historic log theatre on the south end of Flathead Lake.

The Sunshine Boys is produced by the Port Polson Players in association with the Mission Valley Friends of the Arts.
