In the mood for some theater this weekend? Then skip the 7 train to Times Square and stay closer to home with three Queens community theater group openings.
On Saturday you have your choice between the Bard of Avon and Nathan of Detroit.
In Forest Hills, The Gingerbread Players present Shakespeare comedy “Love’s Labour’s Lost” (complete with the Anglican spelling). This comedy about four soldiers who vow to give up women for three years just as the Queen of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive in town, bubbles with alliteration, puns and double meanings.
Over in Bayside, Theatre by the Bay opens with the classic Broadway musical-comedy “Guys and Dolls.” The iconic show about a couple of gamblers and their dames includes such standards as “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,” “Luck Be a Lady Tonight” and the title number.
Sunday brings the premiere of the Free Synagogue of Flushing Community Theatre Group’s version of “Legally Blonde, The Musical.” The Broadway adaptation of the hit movie features a cast of young performers and seasoned professionals, who bring the story of Elle Woods to life in song and dance.
