The Vagabond Players are bringing laughter to New Westminster for their spring production.

The community theatre group is staging Neil Simon's Laughter on the 23rd Floor, running April 6 to 29 at the Bernie Legge Theatre in Queen's Park.

It stars New West residents Ray Boulay as Milt, Adam Beggs as Lucas and Wayne Nolan as Ira.

The comedy, inspired by the playwright's youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows, serves up all the comic drama you'd expect as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman Max Prince.

Rounding out the cast are Chris Schuessler as Max, Evan Kelly as Brian, Angie McLeod as Kenny, Kelsey Robertson as Carol, and Alexandra Swanbeck as Helen.

Miles Lavkulich directs.
