Van Wert Civic Theatre is now offering “Don’t Drink the Water” by Woody Allen.
Show dates include today, Saturday, Sunday and March 20, 21, 22 and 23.
A cascade of comedy, this affair takes place inside an American embassy behind the Iron Curtain. An American tourist, a caterer by trade, and his wife and daughter rush into the embassy two steps ahead of the police who suspect them of spying and picture taking.
It’s not much of a refuge, for the ambassador is absent and his son, now in charge, has been expelled from a dozen countries and the continent of Africa. Nevertheless, they carefully and frantically plot their escape and the ambassador’s son and the caterer’s daughter even have time to fall in love.
The cast includes Steve Lane, Amber Evans, Mac King, Jenna Brunk, Joe Maurer, Steve Bricker, Doug Grooms, Gene Craft, Monica Campbell, Lisa Eichler, Dave Ricker and Charlie Diefenbacher and a nightly “mystery” guest. Don’t Drink the Water is directed by Chris Butturff,
Evening performance begin at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Call the box office for tickets between 2-6 p.m. daily at 419-238-9689
