“Anything to Declare?,” a chaotic and wacky farce, is set for Sept. 15-24 at at Lakewood Theater, 76 Theater Road in Madison.
Show times are 8 p.m. Sept. 15-17 and 22-24; 4 p.m. Sept. 18; and 2 p.m. Sept. 21.

The Dupont family is thrilled that their naïve young daughter has married Count Robert de Trivelin.  However, upon returning from their honeymoon, it is made clear that the young bridegroom has yet to  consummate the marriage, and indeed seems to be suffering from a psychological block brought on by a  border crossing guard yelling out “Have you anything to declare?” at a particularly delicate moment. With  only three days left to meet his mother-in-law’s demand for a grandson, or at least the promise of one, the  count seeks the assistance of Zeze, a courtesan who is passing herself off to her clientele as a prominent  artist. T

he entire Dupont family manages to parade through Zeze’s salon and back to the Dupont home,  along with a sobbing ex-suitor of the bride, a camel dealer of unknown origin, and a maid desperate to  break ties with Zeze and start a career of her own. As the clock continues to tick away, a chaotic race to  consummate the marriage results in everyone learning just a little bit more than they might have wanted to.
