Bagpipes are deadly. Especially when they're played by a Highland Hitman who belongs to the Clan (With a C). Toss in incompetent cops, doughnuts, and clothes that slip down faster than a Floridian on ice and you've got Unnecessary Farce. A pair of cops have been assigned to spy on the mayor while he meets with a new accountant who has uncovered some serious embezzlement.
The highly earnest and honest cops are convinced this will be their big break. Never mind that one is afraid of guns, the dark, and enclosed spaces and the other has been too shy to ask a woman on a date for years. All that is about to change.
All shows are in the MSU
Amphitheater at 8:30 p.m. Tickets
are $8 for adults, $7 for senior citizens and
children over 12, $5 for children 12 and under, and $3 for
MSU personnel and summer students with current MSU ID.
Reservations are made by calling the Summer Theatre box office
