ORANGEVILLE - The Orangeville theater group, the Mighty Richland Players, will present its fall show, "Self-Help By Dummiez," at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 22 and 23 and at 2 p.m. Sept. 24 at the theater, 100 E. High St., Orangeville. The doors open a half hour early.

The comedy takes place in a psychiatrist's office waiting room, which is filled with patients waiting for the doctor to arrive. After they discover he is running late, they begin interacting with each other, which results in craziness.

The show, written by Canadian playwrights Todd McGinnis and T. Gregory Argall, is directed by Kim McIver from Freeport and was cast with people from around the area. Sandy Sweitzer, playing Mrs. Winters, is from Pearl City; Mary Jo, as Mrs. Quackenbush, and Melanie Frederick, as Chastity, drive from Mount Carroll; Ron Pallek, playing Matt, is from McHenry; Andy McIver, as Dr. Enbridge, is from Freeport; Chase Bender is from Cedarville; and Ethan Bilgri, playing Jerry, is from Orangeville.

Dessert is included in the $20 ticket price, and hot apple cider and coffee will also be served.

Tickets can be reserved by calling the theater at 815-819-1310. Groups are welcome.
