Shakespeare’s dark and powerful tragedy of murderous ambition plays out in a world of witches and nightmares, making for a Halloween you won’t soon forget! As an exploration of the human capacity for lust and betrayal, the very name of the play’s central character has become synonymous with the evils that lurk in the human heart.

NUNSENSE Comes to Cheviot Stage

(Cheviot, Ohio) The Drama Workshop, the award-winning community theater based at Cheviot’s Glenmore Playhouse, is excited to open Dan Goggin’s highly acclaimed musical, NUNSENSE, on Friday, October 4. The production is directed by Lizanne Ingram, with musical direction by Linda Abbot and choreography by Lauren Kinker, and is co-produced by Megan Schultheis and Gretchen Gantner.

NUNSENSE begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina (Dianna Davis), a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert (Karen Sowards), the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne (Amy Waldfogle); Sister Mary Leo (Kate Stark), a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia (Catherine Shultz), the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon with more than 5000 productions worldwide.

Amy Waldfogle is appearing in her second TDW show, having previously been seen in last year’s “Snoopy” as Peppermint Patty. “This is a funny, silly, have a good time show. It’s also kind of a love letter to the Church and to the men and women who dedicate their lives to it.”

She’s thrilled to be back on the TDW stage. She explained, “From the moment I first showed up for what was supposed to be a one time helping out as a favor to a friend, TDW has treated me like a long time, much loved member.”

Show dates for NUNSENSE are October 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, and 19 at 8 pm. Matinee performances will be offered on October 6, 13, and 20 at 2 pm. Tickets may be ordered through the TDW ticket line at 598-8303, or online at www.thedramaworkshop.org. All seats are $15.00. Sellout houses are occurring frequently, so reservations are strongly encouraged.

For an additional $35, patrons can convert their single-show ticket for NUNSENSE into a TDW 2013-2014 season ticket. Additional productions this year include “A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol” (December), “12 Angry Men” (March), and “Suite Surrender” (May).

THE DRAMA WORKSHOP was founded in 1954. TDW is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to advancing education and promotion of the theatrical arts. Based at the newly renovated Glenmore Playhouse in Cheviot, The Drama Workshop is widely recognized as one of greater Cincinnati’s most accomplished community theater organizations, garnering dozens of awards annually from the Cincinnati Association of Community Theatres. TDW productions have been regularly selected to represent the Southwest Ohio region at the Ohio Community Theatre Association annual conference, and TDW was also honored to represent the state of Ohio at the American Association of Community Theatre conference in 2013. Prospective members, and individuals or businesses interested in becoming involved or in helping advance TDW’s mission are encouraged to contact the group through our website at www.thedramaworkshop.org, or by phone at 513-598-8303.
