ActorsNet presents “Seven Keys to Baldpate”


ActorsNET continues its 25th season and brings a classic American melodrama with a big serving of comedy to the Heritage Center stage in Morrisville.
“Seven Keys to Baldpate,” George M. Cohan’s 1913 stage mystery/melodrama, opens March 11, for a three-weekend run. Jack Bathke stars as Billy Magee, a novelist who bets a wealthy friend that he can write a 10,000-word story in only 24 hours.
To ensure peace and quiet, Magee uses what he was told is the sole key to lock himself inside the abandoned and rundown Baldpate Inn. He believes himself to be the only occupant, but bedlam soon follows. He is constantly interrupted by an onslaught of unwelcome characters – including a bedraggled hermit, a corrupt politician, a crooked cop, a feisty female reporter, and a gang of inept criminals.

John Boccanfuso directs Bathke and cast mates (alphabetically) Ken Ammerman, Chris Capitolo, Jeff Dworkin, Scott Grande, Nyiema Lunsford, Hans Peters, Rick Pine, Christopher Root, Renee Root, Hayley Rubins-Topoleski, Maryalice Rubins-Topoleski, and Joe Ryan.
Proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within 36 hours of the performance is required, as are masks in the theater.
Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. March 11 through 27 at The Heritage Center Theatre, 635 N. Delmorr Ave., (Route 32), Morrisville. Tickets can be purchased at
