Cincinnati, OH – In the tradition of sketch comedy shows like Saturday Night Live and The Second City, Cincinnati’s very own PARTY BUS is revving up for a night of comedy inspired by nightlife antics, couples’ game nights, the Tri-State’s rich history, and much, much more!

The Clifton Players are proud to announce PARTY BUS as the inaugural show to kick off their season. Performances run Saturdays at 8pm from March 2-April 13 with an approximate run time of one hour and 20 minutes. Ages 18 and up.

The cast and sketch writers include Ali Delianides, Alicia DeVore, Billy DeVore, Ricky Glore & Chance Kilgour. Additional material by Amanda Teemley. Featuring music by Riley Bachman. PARTY BUS is produced by Clifton Players and We Are Productions.

Performances take place Liberty Exhibition Hall – 3938 Spring Grove Ave – Cincinnati OH 45223. The Liberty Exhibition Hall in the Northside, is newly open to the public after 73 years. Over a century ago, vaudeville acts would fill this space and entertain audiences with their wide ranging acts of performance artistry.

Free street parking is available as well as a pay lot next to Littlefields.

Tickets are $10 at the door or available online at partybus.brownpapertickets.com.

THE DROWNING GIRLS
Clifton Players

Liberty Exhibition Hall [Northside]

Directed by Bridget Leak

Cast: Mindy Heithaus, Eileen Earnest & Carol Brammer

Bessie, Alice and Margaret have two things in common: they are married to George Joseph Smith, and they are dead.  Surfacing from the bathtubs they were drowned in, the three breathless brides gather evidence against their womanizing, murderous husband by reliving the shocking events leading up to their deaths.  Reflecting on the misconceptions of love, married life, and the not-so-happily ever after, The Drowning Girls is both a breathtaking fantasia and a social critique, full of rich images, a myriad of characters, and lyrical language.

Synopsis: CHAMPAGNE GODSs by Emily Dendinger
Holly has made the greatest archeological discovery of the 21st century—an oracle of the god Apollo that shows you the person you’re meant to spend your life with. However, when Holly decides that there’s more to life than archeology, her colleague Will takes it upon himself to change her mind. Set among the marble halls of the British Museum on the night of a New Years Eve gala, chaos ensues as love turns everything topsy turvy. A throwback to the screwball comedies of the 1940s, CHAMPAGNE GODS is a romantic romp about fate, farce and fidelity.
