Announcing: the 2020 Playhouse schedule!!

All That Brass!
by Holly Hepp-Galvan (accent on the second a!)
June 5 – June 20
A Kentucky Voices Original World Premiere!
The Great American Brass Band Festival is about to begin, and Danville’s in a tizzy! Bands are flying in, hot air balloons are rising, and an elephant is stomping his way downtown! Michael returns home for his estranged father’s wedding but wants no part of the chaos. Only when he finds his father’s prized historical trumpet and follows its journey from the Battle of Perryville to the Women’s Suffrage Movement does Michael learn that sometimes the best way to go forward is to embrace the past. A high-energy, local flavor comedy full of live music and plenty of brass! Rated G.

Clue: On Stage
Based on the cult classic Paramount Pictures Movie and the popular Hasbro board game!
Based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn
June 23 – July 4
It’s a dark and stormy night, and you’ve been invited to a very unusual dinner party! Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well, dead. So…whodunnit? And more importantly, who will be next? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock and Mustard as they race to find the murderer before the body count at Boddy Manor stacks up! A madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist! Rated PG.

Southern Fried Funeral
By Osborne and Eppler
July 7 – July 18
Dewey Frye is dead, and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces – if they don’t kill each other first! Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to deal with sudden widowhood, she must contend with a nosy church lady, a snake-in-the-grass brother-in-law, two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry, and a son who’s convinced he’s won the lottery. As Dorothy discovers, funerals definitely bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people. A big-hearted comedy about family – Southern style! Rated G.

Jeeves in Bloom
Adapted by Margaret Raether from the stories of PG Wodehouse
July 21 – August 1
Things will never be the same after Bertie Wooster and his unflappable butler Jeeves pay a visit to Aunt Dahlia! What starts as a plan to play matchmaker for a tongue-tied, amphibian-loving friend goes hilariously wrong. Soon Bertie is fending off amorous advances, a possible burglary, and a homicidal French chef! Can the one and only Jeeves save the day? A delightfully silly comedy! Rated G.

Maybe Baby, It’s You
By Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson
August 4 – August 15
A mild-mannered Midwesterner whose blind date turns out to be the Greek Goddess of Vengeance; a gorgeous brain surgeon who’s always “Mr. Wrong” because of his wild-and-crazy dancing style; a film noir guy and gal caught in a loop of razor-sharp movie banter; a pair of elderly ex’s possibly reuniting at their grandson’s soccer game. This modern comedy–full of song and dance, love and laughter–takes a tender, funny look at finding your soul mate. Rated G.

Two nights only!
Kentucky funnyman Lee Cruse returns to Pioneer Playhouse! Joined by Comedy Off-Broadway MC, Scott Wilson, and winners of the 2020 KY All-Stars Comedy Tour! A special stand-up comedy show you won’t want to miss! Rated PG.
