Three Stooges Day for some people MORC Serves

REDFORD — Anyone remember Moe, Larry and Curley?

At least five people the Macomb-Oakland Regional Center serves will be introduced to the three comedians who became popular in the 1940s. The five will attend a “Classic Film Series” on Saturday, April 16, featuring the Three Stooges Festival.

The two-hour matinee performance starts at 2 p.m. at the Redford Theater. Six of the Three Stooges films will be shown, including “Matri-Phony,” “Three Smart Saps,” “Even as I.O.U,” “Three Little Twirps,” “Higher than a Kite,” and “I Can Hardly Wait.”

There also will be an organ overture 30 minutes before each show. An evening performance also is scheduled at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the event are $5 per person.  The people MORC serves will be gifted tickets by MORC staff attending the event, said MORC Support Coordinator Dennis Santoni. Caregivers also will attend to make it a memorable day for those who should enjoy the slapstick humor of The Stooges.

Jerry Wolffe is the writer-in-residence, advocate-at-large at the Macomb-Oakland Regional Center. He can be reached at (586) 263-8950.
