CINCINNATI, OH – March 2, 2022 — Due to circumstances beyond our control, we need to cancel the final weekend of performances of our current production, “Drinking Habits”. These performances were scheduled for Thursday (March 3), Friday (March 4), and Saturday (March 5th).
Both postponed 2021 productions, Alice in Wonderland and Laughter on the 23rd Floor have been rescheduled for Summer 2022. Auditions for our annual children’s production, which has been moved to June, should be announced shortly.
While Sunset Players also had to cancel its planned spring production of Two by Two, we are excited to announce that Queen City Productions has agreed to allow our season tickets holders to attend its upcoming production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee being performed at the Arts Center at Dunham as a replacement for “Two by Two”. Season Pass Holders will be contacted with Details on making reservations for this alternate production.
Here’s the remainder of The Sunset Players 2021-2022 season:
- Alice in Wonderland, a treat for kids and those young at heart, brings Alice to life as a group of performers seeks out Alice to provide “her turn” in Wonderland. As her adventure unfolds, Alice encounters many unforgettable characters. Based on the Lewis Carroll classic, this piece was dramatized by William Glennon, and is produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois. Performances are June 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26, 2022. Friday performances will be at 7:00 pm, with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm.
- Laughter on the 23rd Floor by Neil Simon. Directed by John Wesseling and produced by special arrangements from Samuel French, this play focuses on the star and writing staff of a weekly comedy-variety show circa 1953 and the writing, fighting, and wacky antics that ensue in the writers’ room. Based upon Mr. Simon’s days writing for Sid Caesar along with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, and Woody Allen, performances are August 19, 20, 26, 27, 28 and September 1, 2 and 3, 2022.
