Compton And Bennett in A Cracker at the Ritz


A fantastic evening of sidesplitting humor, featuring special guests Compton & Bennett in the musical comedy A Cracker at the Ritz.

Earlene (played by Betsy Bennett) is the queen of the Florida Crackers. Her family has been here for four generations—prospering on everything from cattle to condos. But don’t confuse Earlene’s Cracker with the cultural slur—she and her Cracker ancestors are proud of their heritage.

A Cracker at The Ritz is a 75-minute satirical roasting of all things Florida in song and sketch comedy. You’ll hear Snowbird Come (and He Won’t Go Home), Swampland Scam, Migrant Worker Man and more.

Compton & Bennett are no strangers to satire. Rick and Betsy are best known as the authors of the pair of shows in the Assisted Living: The Musical® franchise, but the duo has written and produced more than 24 satirical shows about Southwest Florida. Titles include Trouble in Paradise, The History of Collier County… According to Us, and How to Succeed in Naples Without Really Trying.
