Rochester High School Presents Comedy, ‘Amateurs’

Spend an evening supporting local theatre as Rochester High School presents their production of Tom Griffin’s comedy, Amateurs. Amateurs Play

The play is set following the opening night of the Timberly Troupers’ musical about undertakers, Dorothy and her slightly daft husband, Charlie, host a gathering of actors and friends. The chic opening night party is in another part of town. A well-known drama critic has a heart attack and he leaves behind his not-yet-published review before being taken to the hospital. The party becomes the setting where the dreams, loves, failures and successes of this group are explored with bittersweet humor and the relationship between risk and need is touchingly depicted.

The show runs Thursday, April 23, Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25 at 7 p.m. in the RHS auditorium. There will also be a 2 p.m. matinee on April 25.

Tickets are now on sale: $10 for adults and $8 for students/seniors and can be purchased online at All seats for the matinee are only $5.
