The Theatre Arts Department at Lake Tahoe Community College will present the comedy “Leading Ladies” Nov. 14 through 23 in the Duke Theatre. Written by Ken Ludwig, this is described as a mixture of “Some Like It Hot” and Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” with a little Monty Python-style thrown in.

When they hear that an old lady in York, is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nieces, they scheme to pass themselves off as the women and get their share of the cash.

Performances take place Nov. 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees on Nov. 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. High school and college students with a current school identifications are invited to attend the show for free on Nov. 20, while seating is available.
