No Time for Sergeants


By: Ira Levin
Performances: Sept. 10 - 26, 2010


NO TIME FOR SERGEANTS' central figure is a husky and good-natured hillbilly who finally gets into the Air Force despite his father's propensity for tearing up his draft papers. Veterans and their spouses are free provided they call the Box Office at 936-441-SHOW and bring items to benefit our active duty troops. See the US Troop Support Foundation for more details.

His determination to be transferred to the infantry soon spells trouble among generals and sergeants, his fellow service men and, in particular, a military psychiatrist. Thus begins the desperate efforts of the Air Force to classify this highly unclassifiable mountain boy. Not miffed, our hero is soon sent off on what becomes a comic voyage, in an airplane manned by some weary flying officers, most suffering from hangovers. Even though the plane does get lost and heads towards an atomic explosion in Yucca Flats, the hilarity of the play's endearing hero leaves few moments to contemplate the ensuing disaster.
