It’s back! The show we cancelled in March of 2020 returns!
“Wonder of the World” by David Lindsay-Abaire
directed by Thomas D. Perrine

Most of our original cast is returning but there are 3 roles that we need to recast.
Roles available are:
Kip Harris – Male in his 30s, Cass’s husband
Lois Coleman – Female 40s to late 50s, an alcoholic with a barrel
Captain Mike – Male 30 to 40, Captain of the Maid of the Mist

The Story:
Nothing will prepare you for the dirty little secret Cass discovers in her husband’s sweater drawer. It is so shocking that our heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on. It’s a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of bickering private detectives, and a strange caper involving a gargantuan jar of peanut butter, all of which pushes her perilously close to the water’s edge.

Show dates: April 27 – May 7, 2023, Fridays and Saturday nights at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork.
