The Man Who Came to Dinner

By George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart

Theatre Workshop of Owensboro celebrates 60 SEASONS with a return to the very first show ever staged by the company!  In 1955 this classic comedy introduced TWO to the community.  Now it's back, in commemoration of that time and the countless productions that have followed.

Irascible Sheridan Whiteside is a celebrity, a writer, and a broadcaster who breaks his hip in the small town home of the Stanleys.  Confined to a wheelchair, he sets up shop in their house, and creates chaos at every turn!  As Whiteside is visited by a collection of wacky characters with agendas of their own, THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER develops into one of the funniest plays in American drama.

Opening just in time for the holidays, the show plays December 8, 9, 10 and 15, 16, 17.  Fridays and Saturdays are at 7:30, with two Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm.  The show will be at THE EMPRESS THEATER, on Fourth and Frederica.

Tickets may be purchased at the Box Office, (270) 683-5333.  Also on this page, by clicking on the BUY TICKETS icon to the right.  All tickets are $20.00.

The show is sponsored by SOUTHERN STAR.

How to Eat Like a Child

By Delia Ephron

This romp through the joys and sorrows of being a child is hilarious. Children give twenty-three lessons in such subjects as how to beg for a dog, how to torture your sister, how to act after being sent to your room, and how to laugh hysterically. The pace is fast, the tone subversive, and the recognition instant!

March 15, 16 and 17.  Friday's showtime is 7:00 pm.  Saturday is at 2:00 and 7:00.  Sunday the 17th is at 2:00 pm.  

Directed by Kayla Kelley, the show will be at TRINITY CENTRE, 407 W. Fifth St.  Tickets are available at the TWO Box Office, (270) 683-5333 and on this page.  Click on BUY TICKETS.  All tickets are $20.00.
