CTW’s The Collective Presents Bull in A China Shop

February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $30

Bull in a China Shop

Support CTW’s student leadership program, the Collective, and join us for tea! This year’s Collective presents “Bull in A China Shop” at the Historic Ohio Theatre. The Collective is a group of older CTW teens who produced this entire show. CTW teens cast, direct, budget, schedule and run rehearsals, market, and bascially do all the things to produce an entire show. The cast consists of adults from the community who answered open auditions for The Collective students.

The play is best suited for adults and children ages 10 and up. It is appropriate for younger children but they may not be as engaged as older children.

Join us for table seating and enjoy a delicious tea service during the show, or just come see the show in the audience seats like usual. Choose reserved seating to sit in the audience or click a table to buy general admission tickets for the tea service.

When a houseful of sweet little old ladies discover that a handsome bachelor lives across the street, they are delighted. When they learn that he is none other than Detective Dennis O’Finn, of Homicide, they are faced with the problem of how to attract his attention. The answer is simplicity itself: a nice, genteel homicide with a cup of tea as the murder weapon. When a brash young woman reporter begins to suspect the truth, she becomes the next target. O’Finn is terribly embarrassed when at last he discovers that he himself is the motive for these madcap goings-on, and, in desperation, manages to solve the case. But the dear old ladies are too fond of him and in the end they turn the tables on him! First a short story in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, later a success on “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” and now a stage veteran of hundreds of performances around the country, Bull in a China Shop continues to enchant audiences everywhere!

Performances are February 9-11, 2024 at the Ohio Theatre; tickets are available online now or at the door 30 minutes before the show begins.
