Burbank actors Daniel Roebuck and Jim Roope will have to age 20 years through the magic of makeup for their roles as 70-year-old former vaudevillian performers reuniting for one last TV appearance in Neil Simon's "The Sunshine Boys". The show opens its two-weekend run on Friday and is a fundraiser for St. Francis Xavier Church and School in Burbank. Roebuck, a TV veteran best known for his role as Clifford Lewis on "Matlock," has honed his own version of the character Willy Clark by studying his favorite comedians who were still around in the 1970s — Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Groucho Marx, George Burns and Bud Abbott.

The St. Francis Stage Company is challenging its creative abilities in acting and set design with Alfred Hitchcock's thriller “The 39 Steps,” opening at 8 p.m. Friday and continuing for two weekends in the social hall of St. Francis Xavier Church. Co-Director Jesse J. Adams saw the award-winning production on Broadway and thought it would be a perfect fit for the sixth annual production that raises funds for the church and school, he said. What makes this play fun is the producers are encouraged to use their imagination to interpret the script any way they want.

Between the time I agreed to review “Here Lies Jeremy Troy” by Jack Sharkey at the Glendale Centre Theatre and finally saw the production, I had a very difficult time remembering the play’s title. I had never heard of it or the author, and Internet searches revealed very little about either. But do not let relative obscurity deter you from seeing it, because it’s a funny show with a cast that rises above a very simple plot with a clever double meaning in the title.

Daniel Roebuck is taking a stab at playing the character who looks like Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein in “Arsenic and Old Lace” when the St. Francis Stage Company presents its second fundraiser for the church and school in Burbank. Written in 1939 by American playwright Joseph Kesselring, “Arsenic and Old Lace” debuted on Broadway in 1941 and was made into a movie directed by Frank Capra in 1944. The comedy/farce/thriller is about two spinster sisters, Abby and Martha Brewster, who believe they are doing lonely elderly men a favor by bumping them off. Roebuck, a Burbank resident, plays one of the sisters’ three nephews, Jonathan Brewster.
