The Jamie Morris parody, “The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode,” will open July 12 and run for four weeks at The Ringwald Theatre in downtown Ferndale.
After sold-out runs across the nation, the wildly popular “The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode” comes to Detroit. Written by Jamie Morris, creator of the LA Weekly Theatre Award-winning comedy “Mommie Queerest,” “Facts” features an all-male cast as the girls from Eastland.
The lost episode in question is titled “The Best Little Whorehouse in Peekskill.” Budget cuts are threatening to force Mrs. Garrett (Joe Bailey) to leave Eastland. But, like the theme song states, “You take the good, you take the bad” and Blair (Richard Payton), Tootie (Jerry Haines), Natalie (Joe Plambeck) and Jo (Jamie Richards) are willing to do anything to raise enough money for her to stay. Anything.
“The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode” does not incorporate actual episodes. This is a new, unauthorized parody inspired by the beloved sitcom. “The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode,” a Who Wants Cake? production, features a cast that includes Joe Bailey, Richard Payton, Joe Plambeck, all of Ferndale; Jerry Haines of Royal Oak; and Jamie Richards of Birmingham. Joe Bailey will also direct.
Performances will begin July 12 and wrap Aug. 4. Show times are 8 p.m. Saturday and Monday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Ticket Prices are $20 for Saturday performances, $15 Sunday matinees and Monday is $10.
