Cast Announcement: Funny Money


The cast of "Funny Money" closes in on the briefcase full of money!

The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA), in partnership with Cyndi Lewis of Rob Trost Real Estate, is excited to announce the cast of the upcoming production “Funny Money”, written by Ray Cooney, and directed by Becki Wilhelm.

Henry Perkins is a mild-mannered accountant who accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase on his way home from work and discovers it is the best birthday present ever…..because the briefcase is filled with money!  Tired of the day-to-day grind, he decides to keep the money and immediately wants to depart for points unknown. Will his wife go along with the plan? How does he keep the news from his best friends who are coming over? Throw in the police, an impatient taxi driver, and the briefcase’s actual owner, and an evening of hilarious theater is bound to ensue!

TAPA veterans Lynn Lothman and Julie Bucknam play the roles of Henry and Jean Perkins, while David Wiegan and Robin Eley play their friends Vic and Betty Johnson. Gerry Cortimilia makes an appearance as the impatient taxi driver, Bill. And we see Garrick Gordon and Daniel Reid as police detectives, Slater and Davenport.  Rounding out the cast is newcomer Dennis Greiner as Mr. Big, the owner of the briefcase full of money.

This hilarious, madcap farce opens April 28th with a Gala Celebration and runs through May 13th.
Tickets for this production go on sale March 28th. As always, reserved seating is available through Diamond Art Jewelers located at 307 Main Street in Tillamook, or call (503) 842-7940 for reservations.
