The Omaha Community Playhouse would like to offer UNMC employees and students complimentary tickets to its production of "Leading Ladies" at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the Hawks Mainstage Theatre.

To secure these tickets, employees should email Lanelle Poole at the playhouse with the number of tickets that they would like. This offer is only available for tonight.

"Leading Ladies," by Ken Ludwig, follows two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, so down on their luck that they are performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, Pa., is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces.
