Winterport Open Stage will present the Maine premiere of “Jenny’s House of Joy,” a new comedy by Canada’s most produced playwright, Norm Foster. Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m., April 16 through 25 at Wagner Middle School, Mountain View Drive.

Directed by Dominick Varney, “Jenny’s House of Joy” is a wild west comedy about the world’s oldest profession. Jenny runs a parlor of iniquity in Baxter Springs, Kansas, and when a new girl comes to town, the competition  amongst the ladies gets stiff. Although we do get to know the good old boys who visit Jenny’s House of Joy, we never get to see them; the story is presented strictly through the eyes of the spirited women who walk them up that flight of stairs to three-buck heaven.

This saucy comedy will lasso the laughs as the ladies reveal their client’s best wishes … and some of their own. The all-female shoot ’em up comedy stars local favorites Brianne Beck, Emily Gammon, Jenny Hart, Kim Pitula and  Christie Robinson. The show is for mature audiences.

General admission tickets are $8, $5 for students and senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased at  the door one hour before the show. For more information, visit
