Georgetown Theatre Workshop stages melodrama

The Georgetown Theatre Workshop has opened its 39th season with a melodrama, “Bertha the Beautiful Typewriter Girl,” written by Charles George.

“The audience is invited to hiss and boo at the chicanery of the evil banker as he tries to carry out his dastardly schemes to steal a fortune from an innocent typewriter girl and her mother,” note organizers. “Watch as this evil character tries to thwart the love between his own son and the beautiful typewriter girl.”

The show will feature Andy Arnott, Bill Borrelli, Lou Dispenza, John Flynn, Andy Griffith, Renee Heusser, Jared Maul, Danielle Santapaola, Eva Toscana and Jen Quimby. It is directed by Gael Nappa.

The group first performed this show during its first season. The theater group faced an uncertain future last year when their lease was in jeopardy of not being renewed; however, they still remain in their same location today.

The show will end its run this weekend at Pentucket Workshop, 22 Pleasant St., Georgetown. Performances are set for tonight, tomorrow and Saturday. All shows begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.
