Visitors and residents of the Florida Keys this Memorial Day weekend have at least three theatrical options for tickling their funny bone.

Marathon Community Theater presents "Marrying Terry," a comedy in its final weekend, Thursday through Saturday, May 22 – 24 at 8 p.m.

Terry Adams is a name shared by a rare books librarian and a forgettable radiologist. One has booked the last room at the Drake Hotel in Chicago during a blizzard in the hopes of getting engaged. The other has reluctantly just gotten engaged and inadvertently celebrates a bit too much in the Drake's bar. Mistaken identities, out and out deception, delayed planes, missed phone calls and too many well-intentioned friends popping by are all part of this romantic comedy. Visit the theatre's website for tickets at or contact: 305-743-0994 or

Visitors to Key West have two options this weekend. The Waterfront Playhouse presents: A Dog Story, the musical tail, uh, tale, of Roland, a 29-year-old career-driven lawyer looking for a wife. He follows the advice of his womanizing best buddy: get a dog for the summer as a ready-made conversation starter. When Roland adopts tiny (and invisible-to-the-audience) Cupid, his world is turned upside down. Showtime is at 8 p.m. Call the box office at 305-294-5015 or email:
