(Cheviot, OH) The Drama Workshop is pleased to stage its final show of the 2014-2015 season, the hilarious British comedy, JEEVES IN BLOOM.
JEEVES IN BLOOM opens May 1, running through May 17. Performances are Friday, Saturday and Sunday each weekend, with Friday and Saturday shows starting at 8 pm. Sunday afternoon matinees start at 2 pm.
Taken from the classic stories by P. G. Wodehouse, Bertie Wooster has been summoned to the country house of his aunt and uncle, and is accompanied by his trusted butler, Jeeves. Thank goodness for that, as Jeeves is called upon to rescue Bertie and his upper-class friends and relations from the ridiculous situations they create for themselves. All too quickly, Jeeves’ many talents are called into service as nefarious plots, bizarre escapades and romantic interludes play out in the quiet English countryside.
Described as “Downton Abbey with laughs,” JEEVES IN BLOOM is adapted from the original stories by Margaret Raether. TDW’s production is directed by Dennis Murphy, produced by Gretchen Gantner, and features the on-stage talents of an award-winning cast, including Bill Keeton, Carolmarie Stock, Doug Tumeo, Joe Ward, Justin Spencer, Elizabeth Malloy, and Doug Malcolm.
Tickets for all performances are $15 each when paid in advance, and may be ordered by phoning the TDW 24/7 ticket line at 513.598.8303, or by ordering online at thedramaworkshop.org. Discounted rates are available for groups of 10 or more by special arrangement with the TDW box office.
