INA – Rend Lake College Theatre Director Tracey Webb has assembled a great cast of local talent for the upcoming RLC Performing Arts Department fall production of “Get Smart.”
This time, the 1960’s spy spoof comes to the stage at RLC. Packed with lovable and not-so-lovable characters, “Get Smart” at RLC is sure to put a comedic spin on KAOS and C.O.N.T.R.O.L.
The lead role of Agent 86 Maxwell Smart will be played by Drew Nelson of Woodlawn. Tank Junkins of Woodlawn will take on the identity of C.O.N.T.R.O.L.’s Chief and Brittanie Graham (Woodlawn) will be playing the lovelorn Agent 99. The role of KAOS leader Mr. Big will be filled by Justin McCoy of Mt. Vernon and Derek Wintermann of Ashley will play Agent 13.
In this particular script, Smart is baffled by the clever machinations of his arch enemy Mr. Big, who is out to steal a dangerous laser weapon. U.S. spy agency C.O.N.T.R.O.L. is determined to stop him.
Mr. Big seems to hold all the cards after kidnapping teenagers, abducting a princess, infiltrating C.O.N.T.R.O.L. with KAOS henchmen and setting up Smart as a failure on the case.
However, just when all hope seems lost, Smart lives up to his name in an unexpected way by surprising everyone – even himself!
