A hilarious backstage farce and genuinely affectionate look into the world of the theatre!

When The Playhouse, a rustic New England summer theatre, schedules a repertory season of Dracula , Hamlet and Charley's Aunt , comic mayhem ensues. Follow the well-intentioned but over-matched company from outrageous auditions to ego-driven rehearsals through opening nights gone disastrously awry to the elation of a great play well told and the comic and nostalgic season close.

All performances will be at the Jeanne Spurlock Theatre on the McNicholas High School campus, 6536 Beechmont Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45230

Thurs., January 24 @ 7:00 p.m.
Fri., January 25 @7:30 p.m.
Sat., January 26@ 7:30 p.m.
Sun., January 27 @ 1:00 p.m.

Tickets are $12 each.
