Adrift in New York (or Her First False Step) by Addison Augler is directed by Granville Scott and assistant directed by Melissa Meinhard. Their direction, combined with the stage management of Michelle Fenton and Geraldine Mongold, sets up a hilarious and entertaining story with twists and turns galore.
The library of a grand Chappaqua house, just north of New York City, sets the stage for Waterworks Players summer production of John Bishop’s The Music Comedy Murders of 1940.
‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ by Oscar Wilde has been entertaining audiences since it premiered in London in 1895. Friday’s opening night at Waterworks continued that long tradition. Wilde’s satire on marriage, wealth, and class borders on the farcical, and this cast performs it for belly laughs.
Our next production at Waterworks will be The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, by John Bishop, co-directed by Scott C Chapman and Caitlin Linkins.
Auditions are open to the public at Waterworks Players Theatre, May 9th and 10th from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
The Waterworks Players stage will be creatively transformed as dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. These pursuits get complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities.
