A musical comedy is on stage at the Port Aransas Community Theatre for the second week of its three-week run.

“Grumpy Old Men, the Musical” is a stage adaptation of the 1993 movie by the same name starring Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon and Ann Margaret.

“It is the story of two aging men, Max and John, neighbors who have been feuding for most of their lives,” said a press release from the PACT.

“The feud is energized by their shared affection for their new neighbor across the street, the beautiful, eccentric, and charming Ariel. They face-off as romantic rivals until their hilarious shenanigans finally bring about a resolution to their long-standing differences,” it said.

The release said the musical adaptation captures the lovably crotchety characters through twinkling humor, great songs and the affectionate depiction of a small town that feels like home to everyone.

The musical will run Thursday through Sunday, April 28 through May 8. Show times are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $22 per person for general admission seating. Tickets can be purchased online at www.portaransascommunitytheatre.com.

Group discounts are available for parties of 10 or more. Tickets at the group rate are $20 per person. Call the box office at (361) 749-6036 for more information or to purchase tickets.

The show’s sponsor is Fisherman’s Wharf. Raffles will take place during each performance for the chance to win fishing trips donated by the dock.

The concession stand will be open for each show, and Scuttlebutt’s will provide a full bar for those wishing to purchase drinks.

Face masks will not be required to attend performances.
