OR... ALWAYS WASH YOUR LONG JOHNS ’CAUSE IT MAKES A LOTTA CENTS BY TIM KELLY March 24 & 25 at 7:00pm (Thursday & Friday) Laundries are big business in the mining town of Digalittledeeper. The ’Tub and Scrub’ is operated by Olympia Klenz and Sweet Sally. The young sheriff is in love with Sally, but every time he gets close he turns into a babbling fool. Meanwhile, our villain, Phineas Flatworm, discovers Olympia has been rinsing gold flecks from miners’ laundry for years. The villain figures if he had the only laundry in town, he’d make a million! With the aid of his mother, Mrs. Mugwump, and Lola-Lola, a talentless dancer, he gets control of the ’Tub and Scrub.’ Lola-Lola plans to marry Phineas, but not if Mrs. Mugwump has anything to say about it! Mayor Haggle gives the ’Tub and Scrub’ a civic award, and a ghost accuses the villain of his crimes. So join the River Ridge Middle School Drama Department to ‘cheer’ the hero and ‘boo’ and ‘hiss’ our villain. Find out if the evildoers are brought to the soap-bar of justice, and will the sheriff overcomes his shyness and propose to Sweet Sally? Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 24th and Friday, March 25th at 7:00pm. Tickets are available at the door - Adults $4 and Students $3
