BERTHA, THE BEAUTIFUL
TYPEWRITER GIRL

“An Old-time Mellerdrammer”

DIRECTED BY JIM LILE

May 27-31, 2015

“Desperate Daniel Desmond, villianous viper and notorious no-goodnik,
seeks to deceive and defraud the beautiful Bertha out of her rightful
riches to feloniously furnish his own foul future.”

Filled with raging conflict between “Good” and “Evil”, this is an absolutely
hilarious melodrama about Desperate Daniel and his vile attempts to
betray Bertha, the beautiful typewriter girl.  Stolen diamonds — a vengeful
scheme — manly heroism — and the pure and noble actions of our hero and
heroine who unflinchingly face almost insurmountable odds!

To what depths will the fiend stoop?”
“How will our heroine elude the vile clutches of her nemesis?”
