More Fun Than Bowling Cast Announcement

Mariemont Players and director Laura Berkemeier are pleased to announce the cast of our November production, More Fun than Bowling, by Steven Dietz. Jake – Pat Kramer Molly – Jackie Miesle Lois – Elizabeth L. Taylor Loretta – Natasha Boeckmann Dyson – Mark Metzner Synopsis Jake owns the bowling alley in a small Midwestern town. He is sitting on a hilltop where two of his three wives are buried. Lois was zapped by lightning while carrying a bowling trophy in a thunderstorm and Loretta was killed by a ball return machine. In his younger days, he was a promising concert musician but a foul tip baseball broke his fingers which subsequently healed into a perfect bowler's grip. Jake replays the key frames of his life and is visited by his daughter Molly who has become adept at talking women into marrying her father for love and free lane time. But who is that nattily dressed man with dark glasses and a revolver lurking nearby? More Fun than Bowling runs November 2-18, 2018. To order tickets, call Betsy at 513-684-1236 OR order online . All seats are reserved and $20 each.

Our maintenance team, Steve Farley and Kim Woods, installed the new outlet numbers next to each twist-lock socket. Those getting training on the new system were Dan Maloney, Pat Kramer, Mike Morehead, and me. We all agreed the new system is much simpler and more capable than our old, often unreliable, patch bay and dimmer packs. We no longer have to throw those big bull switches to power the equipment – just turn on the dimmer board, and we’re ready to go. An additional benefit is programmable controls in the auditorium and at the lighting/sound station in the loft. The five-button controls will be used to turn the auditorium house lights on/off and set several “looks” with the stage lights. This capability might be used by the lighting designer for rehearsal scenes, set painting, or for photography...
