SYNOPSIS

We all know that the real drama in a theatre takes place backstage and creates quite a comedy to watch!

This has never been more true than at Theatre Baroque, with its star, one-time matinee idol Burton Cavendish. Unexpected events, hours before the premiere of “Don Juan in Cleveland,” push the cast to their limits.

Nasty critics, doting mothers and one very large goon stand between the resourceful actors and a successful premier.

Lines and plot twists fly fast in this theatrical farce where over-the-hill prima donnas reign — or think they do — and most of the rest of the cast is betting on who comes out on top.

Saturday, February 12th at 7:00 pm

We are very grateful for all these talents and generous families (they came every day for seven days straight to rehearse and to arrange the hall). Thank you for all your commitment and generosity. The Oratory is blessed. I would propose a professional career to some of our actors, but then ...

Really great production, well done by all. I enjoyed even those actors who were not my blood relations.

No Chartreuse at the concession stand, though. That MUST be remedied before the Emperor's New Clothes is presented.

Dear Timman,

The play was excellent! That crazy director deserves a lot of credit.

So glad that you have volunteered to bring the Chartreuse to the next play since:

1.) I have it on good authority that you made a recent purchase AND
2.) you so uncharitably failed to offer even a small drop to parched visitors recently...which was pretty lame! (Sharon can't do everything!)

--From a reader who really likes what you have to say and one of the few who will admit to it--anonymously, of course.
