EGAD!

The villain is afraid of only one thing – the mysterious Woman in White – a ghostly figure who seeks him out in order to point an accusing finger at him. Who will win the day – the villains or the virtuous?  You’ll find out who while also enjoying period musical performances between the scenes.

The EGAD! cast includes Drama Workshop veterans and newcomers under the direction of Marcha Hunley. The cast includes Peggy Allen, Ann Barfels, Victoria Covarrubias, Aaron Ellis, Elizabeth Hickerson, Victoria Kirby-Schwarber, Stephanie Klein, Alan Kootsher, Larry Mills and Joe Ward playing his second villain at TDW.  Audiences will also be serenaded by musical acts performed by Gretchen Adams, Stefanie Adams and Kent Smith. Linda Abbott serves as the musical director. The play is produced by Valeria Amburgey, Dennis Murphy and Elaine Volker.

Shows at The Drama Workshop frequently sell out, so making reservations early is strongly recommended.
