Very funny local actors will return to The Playhouse in “Wild Mushrooms,” a present-day comedy of an Italian family in the Bronx. Written by Anne Pié and directed by Mary Weaver, “Wild Mushrooms” will be presented for three weekends beginning Friday, March 12 at The Playhouse, 107 Church St.

A frustrated father (Peter Conant) must postpone his own dreams until he has married off two daughters (Julia Clapp and Angelina Nichols) and sent his son (Clayton Clemetson) to college. Toss in an eccentric clairvoyant relative (Leslie Stein) and some Mafia-like compatriots along with a heaping cupful of male marriage-minded candidates (Lincoln Clapp, Micah Ellis, Jacob Fricke and Philip Prince) and the stage is set for a lot of fun.

Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; and Sundays at 4 p.m., March 12 through 28. Tickets will be $10 at the door. Seating is limited; call 338-5777 for reservations.
