ACT1 Theater in Alpharetta presents ‘The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase’



ALPHARETTA, Ga. – ACT1 Theater will present “The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase,” writer Pat Cook’s comedy of hilarious family dynamics and misplaced values, beginning Friday, March 7 and running through Sunday, March 30.

Mystery and mayhem abound when Uncle George invites his dysfunctional kin to his isolated, run down, rustic lakefront cabin for a long weekend. Uncle George reveals that he is leaving his entire estate to all of them. However, they cannot sell it, rent it or improve it. As his disgruntled relatives prepare to make a quick escape, he confides that somewhere on his property is a suitcase holding $480,000, but he doesn’t remember where it is hidden.

What follows is rampant pettiness and childlike greed as the grown-ups battle to find the treasure and the child learns from Uncle George the true lessons of love and family.

ACT1 Theater is located inside the Alpharetta Presbyterian Church, 180 Academy St. in Alpharetta. The show opens Friday, March 7, at 8 p.m. and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. through Saturday, March 29 and on Sundays at 2 p.m. through March 30. There is no show on Sunday, March 9. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for kids 12 and under, and seniors 60 and over. For information and tickets, call 770-663-8989 or go online at
