Dundas County Players support the new Dundas Manor


The Dundas County Players have everyone curious – about their new play! And we can’t wait to see it! Even better, proceeds from one of the evening performances will support the new Dundas Manor!

Rehearsals are in full swing for Dundas County Players’ next production, The Curious Savage. It’s a heartwarming comedy written by John Patrick and directed by Lynn Jolicoeur.  The show will take the stage at the Old Town Hall in Winchester on April 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28. 

Who exactly is the curious savage?  The theatre group tells us it’s the main character, Ethel Savage, who has been unceremoniously dumped at The Cloisters, a mental institution of sorts, by her three step-children – a senator, judge and socialite.  It’s all part of a plan to steal Ethel’s $10 million dollar inheritance left to her by her late husband.  What really irks the greedy stepchildren is the fact that their stepmother intends to set up a memorial fund to help people pursue their dreams instead of sharing the large fortune with them. The play unfolds with an assortment of endearing and colourful residents who appreciate Ethel for who she is, not for her millions.

Money raised from the April 20 show will help build the new Dundas Manor. “We are so grateful that the Dundas County Players have chosen to support the new Dundas Manor,” says Campaign Assistant Cindy Ault Peters. “For 28 years, this talented theatre group has been entertaining local communities and we can’t wait to see their latest performance.”

Tickets are just $20 for adults and $10 for those under 18. If you’d like tickets for the April 20th performance, please call Cindy Ault Peters at 343-572-6345. You can also purchase tickets online at www.dcplayers.ca
