Sussex Tech Drama Club’s fall comedy: PLAY ON!

GEORGETOWN – The Sussex Tech High School Drama Club this week will present PLAY ON! – a comedy by Rick Abbot.

The three performance dates for the Drama Club’s fall comedy are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 19-21 at Sussex Tech High School, located on County Seat Highway (Rt. 9) near Georgetown.

Play On

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $8 for students/seniors. All tickets can be purchased at the door.

The show runs about 90 minutes with one intermission.

The cast features Sussex Tech Drama Club veterans Kyle A. Steele, Lauren Mahetta, Ari August, Josh Fidderman, Eryk Bluto, Arianna Wilson, Reina Carder, and Abbie Porter as well as newcomers Sydney Gross and Gage Reed.

The show is stage managed by senior Tommi Lawrence and directed by Ianna Drew Mosberg.


PLAY ON! is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. A family-friendly farce comparable to Neil Simon’s Noises Off, Rick Abbot captures the hilarity of putting on a community theater production and highlights it with a stellar ensemble cast.

Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.
