The Drama Workshop (TDW), a venerable community theater, has recently established its home at the onetime Glenmore Bowl, built in 1928. In 2013 and 2014, for the second season at the Glenmore, a diverse array of shows is planned: the comic musical Nunsense (October), 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol for the holidays, the riveting courtroom drama 12 Angry Men (March) and Suite Surrender (May) about feuding Hollywood divas.
These productions can have longer runs since paying rent isn’t a factor, and that builds attendance. So if you’re ready to head to Cheviot right away to see what the theater has created, TDW offers its first-ever summer show starting Friday (and running until Aug. 11), an old-fashioned melodrama, Love Rides the Rails, with wicked villains, a gallant hero tied to the tracks and a rescue in the nick of time by the beautiful heroine.
Friday-Sunday through Aug. 11. $15. 3716 Glenmore Ave., Cheviot, 513-598-8303, thedramaworkshop.org
