“You are cordially invited to the sumptuously delicious, and extremely amusing event of the season.  A serious play for trivial people, full of mistaken identities, fine fashions, romance, great intellectual sparring… and lots… and lots… of tea.”

The show opens tonight, June 13th, at 8pm and runs through July 14th.  For a complete listing of showtimes and to purchase tickets visit the Lakewood Playhouse website ( or call 253-588-0042.
