November 13 - 30 Play OnWritten by Rick Abbot and presented by The Schoolhouse Theater, this hilarious story of a community theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script up to the day of the performance. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show. Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal and the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. Visit for ticket information
