Support Ringwald Theatre While Enjoying Online Facts of Life Parody

FERNDALE, MI – In response to the COVID-19 crisis and the mandatory temporary shuttering of its space, The Ringwald Theatre has taken its gifts to the streaming world with a new program: Camp Ringwald presents Summer Shorts. The Summer Shorts program will allow the theatre to maintain a revenue stream while also keeping engaged with their audience.

The first Summer Short featuring The Golden Girls premiered to great acclaim in June. And we’re thrilled to offer the next virtual production, The Facts of Life: A Quaran-Teeny Parody.

You’ve definitely taken the BAD this year, so how about now you take some GOOD! In The Facts of Life: A Quaran-Teeny Parody, The Ringwald returns to its roots and checks in on Mrs. Garrett, Blair, Jo, Natalie, and Tootie. We join the team at a board meeting to determine how the pandemic has affected their “joint” business venture. So, sit back, grab some munchies, and let Edna’s Edibles kick in. Starring Joe Bailey as Mrs. Garrett, Richard Payton as Blair, Brandy Joe Plambeck as Natalie, Jamie Richards as Jo, and introducing Yana Perrault (fresh from Broadway’s Jagged Little Pill) as Tootie.

The Facts of Life: A Quaran-Teeny Parody will be available for purchase August 30-September 13, 2020.
