Funny feud

The show must go on in Georgetown Theatre Workshop’s latest production, “Play On!”

Written by Rick Abbott, the story features the antics of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script.

The curtain goes up Nov. 16, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. at Perley School, 51 North St., Georgetown.

Tickets are $14 for adults and $9 for seniors and students. For reservations, call 978-352-6367 or visit
