MAKING GOD LAUGH Opens THIS WEEKEND at The Drama Workshop

TDW_Making God Laugh promoThe Drama Workshop is proud to present Sean Grennan’s family comedy,MAKING GOD LAUGH.

Come see how one family handles all that life throws at them as they celebrate the holidays. Beginning in 1980, as the adult kids come home for the holidays they see how plans and dreams adapt from what they originally planned. Their parents Ruthie and Bill have to deal with changes as well when family rituals and traditions don’t always fit as the years roll by.

There will be ten performances beginning Friday, December 3 through Sunday, December 19. Friday and Saturday night performances are at 8:00 pm. Sunday matinees are at 2 pm and we have one Thursday evening performance (December 16) at 7:30 pm. All performances are at The Glenmore Playhouse, 3716 Glenmore Ave. Cheviot, OH, 45211.

Tickets are $18 if purchased online or by phone and $20 at the door.  Tickets may be purchased by calling the TDW ticket line at 513-598-8303 or by ordering online at www.thedramaworkshop.org.

As Woody Allen famously quipped, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”

You’ll laugh, you’ll get a little teary-eyed and you’ll definitely understand! Come join us this holiday season.
