CAMDEN, Maine – Cancelled flights, flooding and several stranded “Mommie Queerest” cast members have lead to the rescheduling of the parody of the cult classic film Mommie Dearest to Friday, November 16 at the Camden Opera House at 8 p.m. All tickets previously purchased will be honored for the new date.

Tickets may also available at the Camden Opera House at the box office on November 15. The box office opens at 5pm, two hours before the screening of the movie.

The production and film are sponsored by the Camden Harbour Inn and are still in support of Equality Maine and Yes on 1, a cause that is important to all of the actors as well as the owners of the Camden Harbour Inn, Raymond Brunyanszki and Oscar Verest.

“Hopefully we will be celebrating the successful passing of Yes on 1,” says Raymond Brunyanszki.

The full cast features many of the actors who have performed across the country in this zany all male comedy. Christopher, Joan Crawford’s adopted son, is played by Brian Dunham; Brooks Braselman plays Christina, Joan Crawford’s adopted daughter; playwright Jamie Morris plays Joan Crawford and actor Daniel Pintauro, known from the hit TV show “Who’s the Boss,” plays multiple characters including the maid Carol Ann.

Christopher Kenney - well known to Camden Opera House audiences and beyond as drag sensation EDIE and The Mistress of Sensuality, the host and emcee of one of the most popular shows in Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil’s “Zumanity”, will direct “Mommie Queerest”. Kenney is taking time out of his busy performance schedule to return to Camden, due to his love of the village, the cause, and his desire to bring a Broadway class act to town. Kenney won the LA Weekly Theater Award as Best Comedy Director for his work on “Mommie Queerest,” and was named by Las Vegas City Life readers as Best Local Theater Director for his work on Jamie Morris’ trilogy of plays.

Morris is best known for his stage parodies, which have toured the country since 2003. His other works include The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode and The Silence of the Clams, both of which had world premieres in Provincetown. He lives in Las Vegas and plays Father Mark in the long-running interactive comedy Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding at Bally’s Hotel & Casino.

Following the performance all ticket holders are invited to an after party including complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a meet and greet with the cast at Natalie’s at Camden Harbour Inn.
