“Money Matters” is directed by Christine Johnson and written by Michael and Susan Parker with rights by Samuel French.

The plot is as follows: George (Matt Johnson of Newark) and daughter Annie (Jen Ketchum of Sandwich) run an illegal money-printing business in the basement of Monet Manor and expect everything will be left to them upon the death of the owners. But instead it is left to a stranger, Bud Davis (Bill Griffith of Plainfield), who plans to establish a ladies' retirement home. He brings his architectural adviser, Mr. Oppenheimer (R. Scott Purdy of Geneva), with him to check everything out. A séance is held by the Transylvanian psychic Marilena (Sharon Pagoria of Sandwich). Charmaine (Sue Burich of Morris), a friend of Annie’s, pretends to be a ghost so Bud will think the manor is haunted.
Indian Valley Theatre is an Illinois nonprofit organization dedicated to the appreciation and development of the performing arts in the Fox Valley area.
