This is a good way to start a theater season: Studio Players is having to add a performance of its season-opener, Ken Ludwig’s “Leading Ladies,” to accommodate audience demand.

It seems audiences are agreeing with Herald-Leader critic Candace Chaney, who wrote: “Directed by Marty Wayman, the farcical romp is the quintessential Studio show. It’s an evening of lighthearted silliness with the actors having as much fun as the audience.”

“Leading Ladies” is the story of two struggling Shakesperian actors who dress up as women to try to cash in on an inheritance. Hilarity ensues.

“We have a handful of tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but we want to make sure everyone that wants to can see the show,” Wayman said.

The additional show on this, the production’s closing weekend, is at 8 p.m. Thursday. Go to the Studio website for tickets or call (859) 257-4929.
