Just Add Water
Jul 28 – Jul 30 all-day

A New Comedy by Emmy Winner John Ludin

From the Ellen Theatre in Bozeman, Montana, comes Just Add Water. It’s a recipe for comic disaster when three brothers, who don’t agree on anything, are faced with a dilemma – how best to memorialize dear ol’ dad. Stir in simmering childhood memories and things hilariously spiral out of control.
Just Add Water examines parents, sibling rivalries and family reunions, with the ultimate prescription being that laughter truly is the best medicine.
Starring in Just Add Water are Joel Jahnke, Rhonda Smith, Keith Krutchkoff, Mark Kuntz, Valarie Andrews, Kathy Jahnke and Harry Jahnke
