SOUTH PARIS — Celebration Barn Theater presents the quirky comedy "The Fabulous Problemas" Saturday night. The plot centers on three squirt-gun-slinging desperadoes who will stop at nothing in pursuit of ill-gotten gain. They'll swindle, seduce and even sing and dance their way into the greatest heist of all time.
“The Fabulous Problemas,” devised in Bogota, Colombia, premiered at Celebration Barn in 2011 under the direction of Davis Robinson.
