Bernie Lomax is dead, but he's the life of the party! This summer, the smash hit 2013 stage production of Weekend at Bernie's is back, this time in the beating heart of Portlands club district and running late night all summer long.

Based on the 1989 movie of the same name, Bernie's is the story of two bumbling guys who try to convince the world around them that their dead boss isn't dead. There's beach babes and mob bosses and fantastic 80s costumes. Stupid, right? Yes, but WAIT. Theres actually a pretty good farce in there, especially after our crack team of comedy writers threw the script on a butchers block, strapped on some funny-making goggles and went to town on it.

The result is a breakneck, whip-smart, silly and truly funny stage show. Originally produced in 2013, Bernie's was received with oversold houses and critical acclaim. The legendary Bob Hicks of the Oregonian wrote "But, damn, friends, this thing is funny!" in a 1,000 word love-letter of a review.

Running in the heart of Portland's Old Town club district at the up-and-coming Siren Theater at 10pm, Bernies is the perfect way to start out or finish up a night on the town this summer!

Weekend at Bernie's is brought to you by the same group of veteran comics, actors and writers who have been collectively involved in the sketch groups The 3rd Floor, Sweat, and Bath Night, and shows like Roadhouse: The Play, The Lost Boys: Live and After School Girlfight! Kill! Kill!

Starring: Jason Rouse, Tony Marcellino, Andrew Harris, Lori Ferraro, Kelly Stewart, Ted Douglass, Kevin-Michael Moore, Marshall Bradley, Greg Bigoni, Jack Rice, and Savannah Lalaurie.

Adapted by Jason Rouse and Sean McGrath (Live Wire with Luke Burbank) and directed by Ted Douglass (The Daria, Mitch and Ted Show on 105.1 The Buzz), produced by Andrew Harris.
