Wow What A Show!
first show of our 84th Season opened with a bang, or should we say a
chuckle, giggle, guffaw, snort - OK, it was a really funny show!
First-time director Jonathan Medendorp assembled a great team to present
this hilarious season opener to the appreciative audiences. The
cast was simply fantastic and kept the audiences laughing all the way
The crew worked together seamlessly and prepared the costumes,
make-up, hair, stage and set to perfection. Speaking of the set,
there were many comments from those who saw the show regarding the its
beauty. It really did look like the biggest house in York, PA.
