NEWS from Playhouse

Box of Frogs present DISNEY’S FROZEN, JR., April 26-28; directed by Valera Brooks – Yes, you read that correctly!  Rights to DISNEY’S FROZEN, JR. became available a few weeks ago and we snatched them up!  This is a fund raiser for Box of Frogs’ trip to NYC this fall.  They have been hard at work and it is going to be delightful.  I expect this one may sell out, so I’d get those tickets right away.  They are on sale at the website or call the office.  Also, watch for information coming soon about another show by the Frogs – if you liked The Marvelous Wonderettes from a couple of years ago, you will like THE TAFFETAS.   



Due to a new law passed in Kentucky effective July 1, 2018 our non-profit organization will be required to collect 6% sales tax on tickets sold to our performances. We are raising the price of our tickets $1 to include this tax increase.  KRS 139.010 Ky.Gov

Directed by: Lisa Cope

In this lightning-quick farce, four women travel to a Northwoods cabin to consume copious amounts of wine, laugh at their lives, trade stories and chat about their book club’s latest selection. However, after the third case of wine comes through the door, it becomes clear there will be more stewing than reviewing. For various reasons, three of the ladies have each sent their gentlemen callers to a shed to wait for a special porch light signal, although none of them are aware of the others’ similar plans. Theo only obstacle to each of the ladies’ secret endeavors is Dot, who wants to stay up late all night and party with the girls. The madcap, door-slamming chaos comes to a head when Dot discovers her girls’ weekend is full of MEN!
