CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Centre Stage Community Theatre is kicking off its play Friday at the Corning-Painted Post Middle School Theater. The theatre troop's 11-person production of 'More Than Meets The Eye' opens its curtains Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

"It's been a lot of fun," said Patty Sardo, a cast member. "I have a smaller role which I am really enjoying because I am not on the stage as much, but I make my presence known when I'm out there." 

"More Than Meets The Eye" is about a male author who takes on a woman's name to write children's books. The play follows the author as press, publishers and fans try to meet their beloved, supposed, female author.

"It's hilarious, I really hope people will come and enjoy it," Sardo said. "It's family-friendly, it's fun and people are going to have a lot of laughs."

Show-times for "More Than Meets The Eye" are Friday, Nov. 18, and Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. There is also a matinee showing Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets can be bought here or at the door.
