MWHS Theatre to Perform Spring Play

MWHS Theater to Perform Spring Play

April 9, 2021 — It is with much excitement that Mound Westonka High School Theatre has begun rehearsals for a spring play! Coming to the stage of the Westonka Performing Arts Center, MWHS Theatre will perform David Ives' All in the Timing.

Brimming with smart humor and wacky characters, All in the Timing is a collection of six short plays that comment on relationships, historical events, and the human condition. Whether it's three chimpanzees trying to write Hamlet, a man cursed with being in a "Philadelphia" where nothing seems to go right, or Leon Trotsky reliving his death over and over again, All in the Timing combines slapstick humor with incisive comedic insight that will leave you laughing and thinking long after the curtain falls.

With the changes and challenges that the pandemic presented this last year, MWHS Theatre spent a lot of time finding a show that would allow for smaller ensembles and pod rehearsals but would not lose the concept and ability to put together a full show.
