What do you get when you put a recently unemployed couple, a messenger girl, a cameraman and sleazy guy in a room together?

You get Skin Flick, Terrace Little Theatre’s (TLT) dinner theatre production.

The Norm Foster play is very, very funny and any “action” takes place off-stage, says director Chris Stone.

And it welcomes back some former TLT alumni, who took several years off.

Debbie Haynes, last seen in Bedtime Stories four years ago, returns to play Daphne and Amy Spencer, last on stage as a young girl, returns to play Jill, a messenger girl who ends up being the star of the film.

Daphne and husband Rollie, played by Brent Nixon, in financial straits after losing their jobs, decide to make an adult film to cash in.

When Jill appears at the door and subsequently loses her job too, she joins in also, which comes in handy because she’s an actress.

Cameraman Alex, played by Tim Andersen, and the Alex’s sleazy bookie Byron, played by Kurt Smith, get on board and it’s, in the words of playwright Norm Foster, a comedy that’s “naughty, but affectionate all at once.”
