Falcon’s Eye Theatre cooks up laughs

By November 20, 2013

The Falcon’s Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College announces its first foray into theater for children. As a bonus production in its seventh season, Falcon’s Eye is offering Barry Kornhauser’s zany, commedia dell’arte inspired confection, “Recipe for Disaster.”

In the kitchen of a culinary school, an eager young apprentice readies for the biggest day of his life. A world-famous celebrity chef has arrived to help him pass his cooking school test and become the chef his old grandfather hoped he would be.

When the bumbling head of the school invites two chefs instead of one, a battle of egos ensues that threatens the hero’s dreams. With the help of Julia the dove, the young apprentice struggles to pass his test despite the interference of the crazy cooks.

“Recipe for Disaster” opens on Friday, Dec. 6 and will continue through Sunday, Dec. 15.

Performance times are Fridays and Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and Sundays at 1 and 3 p.m. Performances take place in The Drama Lab at The Harris Center on the campus of Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $8 for students, youth and seniors.

To reserve tickets visit the Falcon’s Eye Website at Find the title “Onstage” and click on the words “Recipe for Disaster,” then click on the words “Tickets.” Tickets may only be purchased in person on the day of the performance using cash or check only.

This event is not presented by The Harris Center. Do not call or visit the Harris Center ticket office.
