THE SOCIAL SECRETARY
Written and Directed by Ellen Price
Produced by Lora Buckman & Mark Humphrey
When Clara Rutherford is hired to mold nouveau riche bachelor Eli Boyd into a true gentleman, spats ensue and sparks fly. But will the elite Four Hundred ever accept him, or will all of the chaos she’s stirred up in his household - and his heart - be for naught?
You’re cordially invited to Newport, RI for the Season – a whirl of high society events to determine who’s “in” and who’s “out” – at the height of America’s Gilded Age. A Pygmalion story with a twist, The Social Secretary features eclectic characters from both upstairs and downstairs, a lively “screwball” romance and lots of laughs.
The Social Secretary production staff is closely monitoring state and local COVID-19 recommendations and protection measures. To help ensure the safety of our team and community auditions and show dates are under review. Information regarding this production will be available once we know more.
