Woody Allen's 'Don't Drink the Water' coming to Danville stage

Role Players presenting oddball comedy set in cold war

Danville's Role Players Ensemble is presenting its rendition of Woody Allen's cold war-era oddball comedy "Don't Drink the Water" during the next three weekends.

The play centers on a New Jersey family visiting cold war Eastern Europe who find themselves being pursued by police and seeking refuge in the American embassy after taking pictures of the wrong thing. The play features Allen's signature brand of humor and motley assortment of characters, according to the Role Players.

Directed by Aaron Murphy, the local production features actors Randy Anger, Dallas Carter, Paul Collins, Bill Dietz, Craig Eychner, Joe Fitzgerald, Elizabeth Frederick, Richard Friedlander, AnJu Hyppolite, Edward Kimak and Dana Lewenthal.

"Don't Drink the Water" opens this Friday night at 8 p.m. at the Village Theatre, 233 Front St. in downtown Danville. It will run Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through Nov. 12. A special Thursday show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 3.

Tickets, which cost $20-28, are available online, by phone at 314-3400 or at the Danville Community Center at 420 Front St.
