About the Show:

Play On! is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does!

Performances will be October 6th, 7th, 8th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd. Friday and Saturday evening performances are at 8pm, and Sunday matinees will be at 2pm. All actors must be available for all performances, as well as tech week (October 1 -4), including a dress rehearsal, preview performance on October 4th.

The rehearsal schedule will be discussed with the cast but will most likely be Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
