The fun started when Stephen and I walked in the door of the Glenmore Playhouse in Cheviot, Ohio. Stephen sat down and Rusty Lacy painted a mustache on him in the style he ordered.
Stephen was too delighted to sneer.
Then we picked up ammunition to throw at the villains. The Can-Can girls passed out ammunition to those in the audience who hadn't picked up theirs in the lobby. You can see the tub that held the bags of popcorn is empty. The audience was ready for those villains.
There were "House Rules" printed in the Playbill. (As always, you can click on the pictures to get larger ones.)
I thoroughly enjoyed the piano playing by JoAnn Ward before and during the performance. She played those old songs popular during the era of melodramas and provided the musical sound effects during the play.
There was someone off stage providing additional sound effects which often made the audience laugh. The Can-Can girls helped by cuing the audience when we had parts in the play. The audience enthusiastically helped out.
Here is the cast.
Below are the names of those in the cast... Actors often act with more than one community theater so if you go to community theater regularly, you will recognize many of the names from other plays that have been presented by other community theater groups..
There are four more performances this coming weekend. The dates are August 9, 10, and 11, 2013. Check The Drama Workshop website for information about times.
