Lotta Cash, a wealthy widow, must be on the lookout. The evil Dogsbreath Devereaux, M.D. plans to marry Lotta so he can inherit her fortune and her late husband’s clinic. Helping him is the nasty nurse, Hilda Hatchet, whom he promises to wed after he gets rid of Lotta. Wild? Well, talk about medical mania when the insanely jealous Hilda catches Dogsbreath flirting with our heroine, Wendy March. We can only hope that Dr. Phil Good, our hero, can save Wendy and the unsuspecting Lotta from certain death. With an abundance of zany patients, wild tunes (’How Do You Bandage a Broken Heart?,’ ’Emergency,’ ’Do the Bop,’ etc.) and a hilarious plot, this musical melodrama will certainly have you in stitches all the way! As they say, Nurses! Foiled again!

The cast, crew and patrons of Wabeno Area Players Production of And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little raised over $700 and several boxes of food items for the New Hope Shelter & Transitional Housing. Every year Wabeno Area Players chooses a local organization or group to sponsor as another way to give back to the community. This year it was New Hope Shelter & Transitional Housing.
The reason New Hope Shelter & Transitional Housing was chosen was all that it gives back to those in need. “We are lucky to have an organization, director, Micah Dewing, and staff in our community to help those that need it. They really need funds to drive the programs they have. If you want to support a local organization that gives 100% back, please give to them this holiday season.” stated Josh Jameson, Wabeno Area Players President.
Their father having deserted them in their childhood, the three Reardon sisters have grown up in a house of women, dominated by their mother, who is only recently dead. But time has erased the tender closeness of girlhood; one sister has married and cut herself off; another has begun to drink more than she should; and the third, after a scandalous incident at the school where she teaches, is on the brink of madness. When the married sister comes to dinner to press the need for committing her sibling to an institution, the simmering resentments of many years burst alive and are exacerbated by the intrusion of a well-meaning but boorish neighbor couple, whose unexpected arrival impels the action towards its shattering conclusion—in which all the pathos, humor and searing honesty of the play combine with overwhelming effect.

“It is funny and fierce and, well, absolutely extraordinary.” —Boston Globe.
“…he has created three parts that most actresses would trade their souls to play.” —Hollywood Reporter.
