OHS Student Directed Play

Bottoms UP! by Gregg Kreutz 

7 p.m. Wednesday - Saturday, Jan 29 - Feb 1 and
2 p.m. Saturday, Feb 1, 2020

OHS Players' Charlotte Grider and OHS Pit Orchestra's Ella Rodewald have taken over the directorial reigns to select, cast, design, publicize, and ultimately direct their own theatrical production! Over the course of the summer and winter of 2019—these two talented seniors will follow in the footsteps of amazing past directors. They have chosen Bottoms UP! by Gregg Kreutz for this traditional mid-winter production.

BOTTOMS UP! - Suitcase, suitcase, who's got the suitcase? is the urgent question in this hilarious farce set in a Caribbean hotel. The comedy charts the confusion that occurs when June, an earnest aerobics instructor, unknowingly acquires the cash filled suitcase of two money launderers from Cleveland. Their attempts to retrieve it cause a soft core movie director to mistake June for the next star of his budge production "Tan All Over." Then he discovers the money and joins the convoluted efforts to get the suitcase. Interference is provided by his former star who is now an outraged moralist, a nervous chemistry instructor visiting the island under duress and the hotel owner and her sticky fingered nephew. Wild chases, bizarre disguises and the silliest looking aerobics dance ever make this a truly riotous farce.
