Van Wert High School Theatre Department is excited to announce our 2022 fall play production. Trouble in Tumbleweed by Tim Kelly will be performed at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, November 16, and Thursday, November 17 at 7:00 pm. Rehearsals have begun and students are looking forward to sharing this two-act family-friendly farce set in the 1880s at the Tumbleweed, Arizona Hotel.
The pompous Mayor Oates has been hired by a Boston businessman to build a town that one day will be the Territory’s capital. To fill the local positions — sheriff, schoolmarm, doctor — he hires his incompetent relatives (kickbacks included, of course!). The news that a Pinkerton detective is coming from Boston to inspect the town’s development throws the whole family into a panic. Just when you think the dust is settling, who should turn up but the detective. The hilarious twists and turns in the plot will have you holding onto your hat (and your sides)! Trouble in Tumbleweed is produced with special arrangement by Pioneer Drama Service, Inc. in Englewood, Colorado. Tickets will go on sale in October and will be available from cast and crew or at the door on performance nights.
VWHS Theatre hopes to see you at our live fall productions as we continue to create, perform, and inspire the Van Wert community through the theatrical arts.
