Jeeves at Sea

November 22nd, 2019
Milwaukee Chamber Theatre

Featuring Matt Daniels, Kathryn Hausman, Chris Klopatek, Josh Krause, Diane Lane, Michael Stebbins. Bertie Wooster and Jeeves return for a new adventure on the high seas – or, at least, off the coast of Monte Carlo. Bertie and his chum Sir Percival Everard Crumpworth (aka Crumpet) are reveling in life aboard the fetching Lady Stella Vanderley’s yacht… until Crumpet discloses that he may or may not have murdered a prince. In the blink of an eye, Bertie is masquerading as a romance novelist, Crumpet is posing as his own long-lost twin, and a foreign count is challenging Bertie to a duel! In Margaret Raether’s fourth adaptation of the classic P.G. Wodehouse stories, appearing for the first time in our Studio Theatre, can Jeeves prevent his master from being murdered – or worse, married?

Next Act Theatre

Wide-eyed Lucas Brickman is a fledgling comedy writer working with some of the funniest – and craziest – writers in 1950s television. While his colleagues try to top each other’s gags, head madman Max Prince contends with the NBC brass who are threatening to pull their groundbreaking show off the air. This hit Broadway comedy is an homage to Neil Simon’s early days writing jokes for Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows, alongside future legends including Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks.

Tickets for 7:30 performances are $39.
