DTG_Expecting IsabelEXPECTING ISABEL
Presented by Dayton Theatre Guild
Feb. 28-March 16
Dayton

Directed by Robb Willoughby
Produced by Rick Flynn

Miranda and Nick, a couple nearing forty, are at last ready for a family, but are not so naturally successful. This very contemporary comedy by a playwright, a stand-up and a mother, examines the frustration, pain and confusion of a modern couple as they try various fertility techniques, new and old, simple and strange. They consider adoption and every other way to experience the final joy of becoming a modern parent.

THE ROYAL FAMILY Runs Feb. 28-March 8

CSP_OH_The Royal FamilyTHE ROYAL FAMILY
Presented by Center Stage Players Ohio
Feb. 28-March 8
North College Hill

Directed by Burt McCollum

Cast: Betty Coulter as Fanny Cavendish, Traci Taylor as Julie Cavendish, Patricia Mullins as Gwen Cavendish, Colin Thornton as Tony Cavendish, Jim Waldfogle as Oscar Wolfe, Josh Roden as Perry Stewart, Earl Lehkamp as Herbert Dean, Becky Cole as Kitty LeMoyne Dean, Fred Hunt as Gilbert Marshall, Sharon Rose Tyahur as Della, Tony Wright as Jo & Lee Ann Waldfogle as Miss Peake

A thinly veiled portrait of the legendary Barrymores, another renowned “Royal Family of Broadway”, the  Cavendish clan compromises three generations of legendary American actors. When the Cavendish name and reputation is threatened, Dowager Fanny rules with a combination of strength, wit, courage, and a sharp tongue, proving the “show” indeed, “must (and will) go on.”
