Village Players
Feb. 25-March 5
[Fort Thomas]

Directed by Greg Hatfield
Produced by Angela Klocke Forbes & Peggy Kenney

Cast: Harold Murphy as Grandpa, Josh Flowers as Tony, Katie Jensen as Alice, Rusty Lacy as Olga, Adam Carter as Henderson, Keith Cassidy as Kolenkhov, Bill Brohaugh as Paul, Hannah McCauley as Essie, Jack Kremer as Ed, Saundra Bailey as Rheba, James Christian Jr. as Donald, Jim Waldfogle as Mr. Depinna, Steve Phelan as Mr. Kirby, Trisha Cooper as Mrs. Kirby, Dava Lynn as Gay Wellington & Angela Klocke Forbes as Penny

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it’s not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. You Can’t Take It With You is a madcap, idealistic comedy that reinforces the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy.

Fairfield Footlighters
Feb. 25-27
Fairfield Community Arts Center

Directed by Richard Zenk
Produced by Kevin Noll

Cast: Wayne Kirsch as Willie Clark, Arny Stoller as Al Lewis, Jim Watson as Ben Silverman, Kevin Noll as Patient, Mike Williams as TV director, Chad Burke as Eddie, Shelby Loebker as Miss MacKintosh & Nicole Cornelius as Registered nurse

Al Lewis and Willy Clark are a pair of feuding vaudeville comedians who performed together for 47 years before finally calling it quits. A network genius then has the brilliant idea of reuniting the duo for a TV special about the history of comedy. Once the reunion is on, the sparks and one-liners start to fly with equal speed. Enjoy this audience favorite where hilarity abounds in this comedy of showbiz and friendship.

THE LAST FIVE YEARS Cancelled at Warsaw Federal Incline Theatre

WFIT logoCincinnati Landmark Productions announced today the cancellation of its February production of THE LAST FIVE YEARS at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater.

“It breaks my heart to cancel this re-scheduled production, especially since this show was shut down only 3 performances into its initial run in March 2020 before the pandemic forced us to close our theaters,” said Executive Artistic Director Tim Perrino. “But the reality is that the COVID spread and recent surge won’t allow us to support this production with needed staffing and ticket sales.”

This announcement does not affect the remainder of the Marquee Series at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, nor the upcoming Summer Classics Season at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater.

Patrons with tickets to this cancelled production will receive a full refund or ticket credit and will be contacted by the CLP Box Office staff directly or  you can call the Box Office at (513) 241-6550.

Auditions Announced for YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN DEAD at Mason Community Players

MCP_logoTwo years ago, Mason Community Players was in rehearsal for You Have the Right to Remain Dead. Undaunted by the delay, MCP will produce the show this May. Some cast members are still able to fill the roles they left so long ago, but many have been unable to return to take the stage. Director Tess Catlin is holding auditions for seven of the show’s roles.

Auditions will be held

  • Friday, February 11, 2022 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM and
  • Saturday, February 12, 2022 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

at the Mason Community Playhouse, 5529 Mason Road in Mason.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

You Have the Right to Remain Dead is a mystery-comedy that traces the antics of Fat Daddy’s rich and conniving family. They are all suspects in his murder and it is up to the police (and the audience) to solve the case. Everyone will be guessing until the final clue, the murderer, and the victim are revealed.

The show will be presented May 6, 7, 12, 13 & 14 at 8:00 PM and May 8 at 2:00 PM.

Descriptions of the available roles are listed below and also accessible on the Mason Players web site at

Roles that need to be filled include:

  • HARNELL CHESTERTON – male, 30s or 40s, a pompous narrator, always speaks his mind
  • BLANCHE La TOURE – female, 40s, a frazzled director
  • OFFICER BAINBRIDGE – male, 30s, a seasoned police detective
  • TRUDY MARSH – female, teens or early 20s, the ultimate stage manager/techie
  • AJAX CONROY/CLETE/MAN 3 – male, 20s-30s, not too bright
  • LEIGH DORSETT/HYACINTH – female, 20s or 30s, business-like
  • STEVE RANDALL/EARL/MAN 2 – male, 20s, newcomer to the group

Questions should be addressed to Tess Catlin,
