ST. PETERSBURG - Casting has been announced for freeFall’s upcoming production of “Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play,” opening April 30 and running through May 22.

Susan Haldeman and T. Robert Pigott will headline a cast featuring Nick Lerew, Kelly Pekar, Christopher Rutherford, Hannah Benitez and Kaylin Seckel.

Civilization has come to an end. The grid has failed and a few survivors are left to rebuild. The play is set shortly after the cataclysm as survivors are attempting to remember the details of an episode of “The Simpsons.” From this unlikely jumping-off point, we watch the transformation of iconic pop culture into mythology as we spring forward seven years and then 75.

CLEARWATER - For theatergoers seeking something a bit out of the ordinary, “The Servant of Two Masters” - a lively and comical reworking of 16th century improvisational street theater - runs through May 1 at West Coast Players, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater.

West Coast Players, a talented group of community theater enthusiasts that formed back in 1994, likes to take chances every so often. At least once or twice each season, WCP pushes boundaries and produces a show that falls outside the mainstream. Sometimes, it’s work from an emerging playwright. Sometimes, it’s something considered a bit too controversial to make it common fare.

The Servant of Two Masters
West Coast Players will present the madcap Italian comedy “The Servant of Two Masters” by Carolo Goldoni, adapted by Constance Congdon, running April 15 through May 1, at West Coast Players Theatre, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater.

Betrothed couple Silvio and Clarice are devastated when a previous fiancé reappears, back from the dead. In this wild farce, things and people are not what they seem – disguises, traps and tricks produce a whirlwind of mass confusion. At the center of this mirth is Truffaldino, the scheming and perpetually hungry servant who concocts a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once.

“The Servant of Two Masters” stars Stephan Bell as the scheming servant Truffaldino with Jacob Mohr and Francesca Ioccavacci as the star-crossed lovers.
