(Cheviot, Ohio) The Drama Workshop is thrilled to present HOME BREW THEATER, an event featuring six new plays and locally brewed beer June 9-11. Performances will be June 9 and June 10 at 8 pm, and June 11 at 2 pm at The Glenmore Playhouse, 3716 Glenmore Ave, Cheviot. All proceeds benefit the Glenmore Playhouse Fix-the-Roof-Fund.

This program is an event unique to The Drama Workshop. The six short plays are all locally written; the playwrights are a combination of people returning from last year’s well-received inaugural HOME BREW THEATER, and newcomers. The 10 minute short-plays make for a fun and fast-moving evening of entertainment. Each performance will be followed by a reception for ticketholders with beer provided by the Christian Moerlein brewery.

The plays, authors, and casts are:

MAGPIE by Teri Foltz, with Bill Keeton, Lori Kirstein, Amber Potter, and Michael C. Potter: Maggie learns a lesson from the birds.

FIRST LOVE by Alan Jozwiak, with Mary Vosseberg and Sam Kerns: breaking up is hard to do.

NOT BAD NEWS by Angela Forbes, with Ray Persing, Gretchen Gantner, and LeAnna Homandberg: what do you suppose is their daughter’s big announcement?

SMOKING by Herb DuVal, with Chris Bishop and Peggy Allen: sometimes, you have to get their attention first!

ESCAPE2FUN by Clint Bramkamp, with Jazz McMullen and Victoria Garcia: Richard and Ellie might get somewhere if it wasn’t for the interruptions.

I QUIT by Betsy Bossart, with Peyton Hahn, Jeffrey Surber, Emily Brinkman, Roxanne Millman, Amy Waldfogle, and Jim Bussey: who knew it could be so hard to quit a job?

The shows are directed by Kat Reynolds, and produced by Clint Bramkamp.

Seating is limited, and reservations for this unique event are strongly recommended. Tickets are $12 each, and may be ordered by phone at (513) 598-8303 or purchased online at
