Congratulations to the cast of Play On! We were completely blown away by the talent we saw this week!Stay tuned for more updates about this fun show!
We are excited to hold auditions for our next show, Play On! on Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 11 and 12, at the Wayne County Museum!
This is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp.

Rich and KJ were a young couple who loved technical theatre and didn’t hesitate to step on stage if needed. They used very innovative techniques behind the scenes whenever working on a play. Both were eager to lend their tech skills to improve any production with loads of energy, always putting in extra hours to “get it right”. Both Rich and KJ enjoyed teaching, always helping young thespians learn more about the tech side of theatre.
