RACINE — The Racine Theatre Guild will present “Jeeves Intervenes,” a comedy of manners in which manners are not always observed, Feb. 26 to March 13 at the Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave.
High society playboy Bertie Wooster (Mike Kishline) and his school chum, Eustace Bassington-Bassington (Eric Welch), hatch a plan to save Bertie from an undesirable marriage (to Anne Mollerskov as Gertrude Winklesworth-Bode) and Eustace from a faraway job in India. Will Bertie’s ever-faithful and all-knowing manservant Jeeves (Ron Halverson) be able to rescue these bumbling fools from themselves? This delightfully British romp, adapted by Margaret Raether, is a tribute to the beloved comic characters of P.G. Wodehouse, full of deception and disguise.
Directed by Doug Instenes, the rest of the ensemble includes Mike Shelby as Sir Rupert Watlington-Pipps and Emily Mueller as Aunt Agatha Spencer-Gregson.
Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Additional shows will be held at 2 p.m. March 5, 7 p.m. March 6 and 10, and 4 p.m. March 12.
