Rover Dramawerks






Rover Dramawerks kicks off their 17th Season with the comedy, Things My Mother Taught Me by Katherine diSavino. Performances will be at Rover’s theatre in Plano, located in Ruisseau Village at 221 W. Parker Rd, Suite 580, at the northwest corner of Parker and 75. Performances run January 12 through February 4, 2017 on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.

When Olivia and Gabe (played by Shauna Holloway and Ben Scheer) move into their first apartment together, everything that can go wrong does go wrong: from both sets of parents (Joe Porter and Ivy Opdyke, and David Noel and Nancy Lamb) arriving to help them move to their moving van being stolen. Combine all this with a surly building super (Martin Sinise) and the young couple finds themselves asking: Is this really how we want to start our lives off together?

Rover’s Artistic Director Carol M. Rice serves as director and costume designer, and Darcy Koss is stage manager. Set design is by Abigail Kipp-Roberts, with lighting design by Maxim Overton and sound design by Jason Rice. Props are designed by Kristin M. Burgess.

Thursday, January 12 is Preview Night, with all seats $10.00 in advance online or “pay-what-you-can” at the door. Following the show on Friday, January 13, Rover will host their First Friday INSIDERS reception, where patrons can meet the cast, director, and designers. Tickets for this performance are $32.00. All other tickets for Things My Mother Taught Me are $22.00 Friday and Saturday nights and $16.00 on Thursdays and matinees.
