Next Comedy Show August 24

The Play That Goes Wrong

October 4, 5, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20

It’s opening night of the Cornley Polytechnic University
Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at
Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from
bad to utterly disastrous. The Drama Society sets out to
open their run of this 1920s whodunit, but everything you
never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a
corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over
everything (including their lines) — starts to ensue.
Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle
against all odds, poison, and peril to make it through to
their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part
Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–
winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s
guaranteed to leave the cast exhausted and the
audience aching with laughter!

Driftwood Players Building

120 East 3rd Street – Aberdeen, Washington

In 1981, the Christian Science Society in Aberdeen decided to move to a smaller building. Driftwood found that it was a perfect site and with some major internal remodeling, turned it into one of the Northwest’s finest community theatres. The Aberdeen Rotary Club assisted by raising the needed funds. The theatre remodeling was undertaken by the Aberdeen Lions Club under the direction of Will Foster and Gene Fogde. It was completed on September 17, 1982. The first play was Auntie Mame, a very ambitious play with 29 actors for 39 roles and a production crew of 19 people. This began the long string of successful plays in the fabulous theatre we now call “home”.
