Second Street Players will present "M*A*S*H" by Tim Kelly on weekends, Friday to Sunday, April 25 to 27 and May 2 to 4. All Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 p.m., and Sunday shows are at 3 p.m. at the Riverfront Theater, 2 South Walnut St., Milford.

The comedy, adapted from the book by Richard Hooker, is the second show of Second Street Players' 2014 season and is based on the well-known, award-winning movie and TV series. M*A*S*H stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke.

In this free-flowing comedy, the two army docs wage a campaign to get a young Korean to the United States and entered into a good school. All the familiar characters are here: "Radar" O'Reilly, Col. Henry Blake, Maj. Frank Burns, "Hot Lips" Houlihan and Father Mulcahy, plus a few more.

Director Mark Dissinger and Assistant Director Josh Gross bring this version of the iconic classic to the Riverfront Theater.

Tickets, $17, can be purchased at or by calling the box office at 800-838-3006.

The cast of "M*A*S*H" and Second Street Players will be holding a donation drive at every performance. They are looking for clothes, food, and toiletries. All donations will be given to the Home Of The Brave and the Home Of The Brave Women's Center.

The cast would also like to invite any veteran and his/her family to come at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 23, for a free performance during the last dress rehearsal. This is the cast and crew saying "thank you" for their time served.
