From staff reports

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.
