'Don't Drink the Water' Opens Tonight

Woody Allen play is a comedy for the entire family.

The Limelight Players present their spring production of Woody Allen's rousing comedy, Don't Drink the Water, this weekend.

The performance will be held tonight and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Millburn High School auditorium. Tickets are $8 in advance (up until noon on Friday), and $10 at the door. High school students can purchase tickets during lunch. Seats are reserved (and going fast), so write in with your order soon.

Don't Drink the Water, directed by Paul Weinstein and produced by Arvin Arjona, is a comedy with no musical numbers and runs just under two hours with one intermission.

The show, set in the '60s, tells the zany story of the Hollander family from Newark. Walter Hollander, a caterer, takes his family on vacation to an (unnamed) European country behind the Iron Curtain.

The trip turns sour when, thanks to a series of misunderstandings involving some inopportune snapshots, the family is accused of espionage! The family goes on the run, taking refuge in the embassy, which is being run by the incapable and inexperienced son of the ambassador. With the help of this young diplomat, the Hollanders try to figure out a way to return to America without sparking an international incident.

Don't Drink the Water is a comedy for all ages that you don't want to miss!

I saw the show last night because of your article. You were fantastic as well as the rest of the cast and crew. We laughed through the entire show. Thanks for writing about it.
