The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) {revised} by Long, Singer & Winfield
You don’t have to be a Shakespearian scholar to enjoy this fast-paced, irreverent review of all of the Bard’s plays. Imagine if your English teacher wore sneakers, a dress and a wig and had 97 minutes to teach you everything you really need to know about the Shakespeare canon. What a blast!
August 6-22.  Directed by Becky Collins

All Together Now! by Music Theatre International
This one-of-a-kind musical revue is specifically designed to celebrate the return of live theater. Featuring favorite tunes from some of musical theater’s greatest song teams and the Disney songbook, it will be performed globally on the same dates by theaters all over the world! Come join us for this celebration!
November 12-14.  Directed by Linda Abbott

Making God Laugh by Sean Grennan
A touching comedy following a typical American family as they meet to celebrate holidays over a 30-year span.  As Bill and Ruthie’s grown children – a priest, an aspiring actress and a former football star – return home, we learn that our dreams and plans reshape over time, ending at unexpected destinations.
December 3-19.  Directed by Michael L. Morehead

Home Brew 5 by local playwrights
Now in its fifth year of combining home-grown plays with home-grown beer, Home Brew 5 features a slate of ten short plays written by local playwrights. After the show, meet the authors, directors and casts at the after-show reception featuring beer from a Westside brewery.
January 14-16.

Bright Star, a musical by Steve Martin and Eddie Brickell
Set in the Blue Ridge mountains during the 1920s and ‘40s, Bright Star tells a sweeping, tuneful tale of love, loss and re-birth. Inspired by a true story, this heartwarming musical features a bluegrass Grammy and Tony®-nominated score from Steve Martin and Edie Brickell that will have your toes tapping!
March 4-20.   Directed by Dennis Murphy

Foolish Fishgirls and the Pearl by Barbara Pease Weber
It’s the Cincinnati premiere for this comedy of three mermaids who fell in love with men and “came ashore” in their youth. 30 years later two are single and running a bed and breakfast, the third is on the verge of losing her man. When a new mermaid arrives … should they warn her of the perils of falling for fallible mortal men?
May 7-23.    Directed by Rose Vanden Eynden

TDW President Eric Thomas shared, “We are elated to return to producing live theater again and can’t wait to invite our audiences back to the Glenmore Playhouse with our full season of musicals and comedies celebrating love, family, music and laughter.”

Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.
