In New York City, two elderly gentlemen have been summoned to a run-down hotel to dispose of articles left by a deceased classmate.
They become involved with a small-town girl from the Midwest, a stripper, an underworld character and a scheming bellhop.
The two senior citizens get a new lease on life after becoming implicated in a porno racket, befriending two damsels in distress and, last but not least, thwarting a gangster.
Cast, in order of appearance, for “Last of the Class” are: Mary Beth Specht (Yavanna Tinkle), Cary Kann (Peter Fortnum), Hillary Vamstad (Janet Zabriske), Rick Scheffert (Dudley Granger), Karen Esterl (Wanda Lust), Carl Peterson (Frank Dorski), Elaine Hegg (Pauline) and Dave Hegg (the man upstairs).
Sponsors for the event are Decorah Bank and Trust, Family Table Restaurant, Gallery of Tops, Modish, Pizza Ranch, Rockweiler Appliance and TV and Singing Hammers Construction.
With “Last of the Class,” Greedy closes the curtain on a 40-plus year career with New Minowa Players.
“From now on, I’m going to sit and watch,” she said.
