Get Tickets for Get Smart


Get Smart, that staple of 1960s television, decades of reruns, and innumerable adaptions and spinoffs, will be gracing the stage at Franklin High School Fri. Jun 9th 2023, 7:00 pm and Sat. Jun 10th 2023, 5:00 pm courtesy of the Franklin High School Theater Company.

The stage play was developed in 1967 by Christopher Sergel based on the pilot for the series created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry. Get Smart was inspired by the Cold War mania for spy stories such as the James Bond.

The publisher’s summary provides a hint of what’s in store: "Would you believe that seven police boats are closing in on us right now?" asks Maxwell Smart of the head of KAOS who now holds him captive. When the master criminal finds this a little hard to accept, the straight-faced Smart asks, "Would you believe six?" With that question, this bright comedy-satire put an expression into the language. Smart is off on a bizarre new case in which he must stop the sinister organization known as KAOS from their most shameful plot. Their plan this time is to prove their power by blowing up the Statue of Liberty! This is too much, and Smart springs—perhaps we should say stumbles—into action. Magnificently assisted by beautiful Agent 99, Smart proceeds from one gigantic blunder to another—each, however, somehow turning into a master stroke.”
