THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG Coming To Dover This November!

The smash hit The Play That Goes Wrong will be coming to Dover Little Theatre (DLT) this November. This hilarious play will be co-directed by Larry and Ruthanne Pelham. Tickets to this production can be purchased by visiting www.doverlittletheatre.org.

The Play That Goes Wrong introduces us to the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, an amateur theatre troupe which puts on a new production each year. Their latest show, The Murder at Haversham Manor, sees the group tackle a murder mystery. But the only mystery is why they'd put on a tricky thriller in the first place. Cast members go missing, props go walkabout, and sets crumble away. The Murder at Haversham Manor isn't so much a murder mystery anymore, but a struggle to get the curtain up. The show must go on, though, and eventually they stumble through. The Play That Goes Wrong is a delightful disaster, full of miraculous mishaps and hilarious happenings.

"We are very excited to be bringing The Play That Goes Wrong to Dover Little Theatre," said director, Larry Pelham. "It is a hysterical muder mystery gone wrong... literally. Our theater is on the smaller side which was our biggest challenge for bringing a show of this side to our stage, but we have done it and it is truly amazing what we can accomplish. The Play That Goes Wrong will definitely be the can't-miss show of the season!"

The cast is made up of 8 wonderful community artists including Larry Shagawat (Chris) from Clifton, Russ Cresspolini (Robert) from Randolph, Matthew Fralley (Dennis) from Netcong, Kym Frank (Sandra) from Mount Tabor, Jess Prekel (Annie) from Hopatcong, Greg Louis Mehlin (Max) from Morristown, Eric Heiberg (Johnathan) from Long Valley, and Larry Pelham (Trevor) from Rockaway.

Tickets for The Play That Goes Wrong can be found on our website at www.DoverLittleTheatre.org. Tickets are $20 per person. Seating is general admission and on a first come, first serve basis.
