MHS Drama Club presents... THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER
The MHS Drama Club will be performing The Man Who Came To Dinner this weekend. This cast and audience favorite revolves around Sheridan Whiteside, a famous egotistic meddler, who injures himself on the front steps of Mr. & Mrs. Ernest Stanley of Mesalia, Ohio. His disruptive - and hilarious! - presence turns the lives of the family and his inner circle upside-down, and only sillier trickery can set things right.
C. Patrick Lombardi makes his stage debut as the opinionated, wheelchair-bound Mr. Whiteside, and Madison Barlow plays his trusted personal assistant. Dan Bertel, Rebecca Costello, Shannon Gallagher and Shannon Hugard play the family he "visits." John Cunha plays local reporter Bert Jefferson, Anthony F. Cox is the prankster friend who gets involved late in the game, and Ella Miller is the famous and beautiful actress who knows how to get what she wants.
In addition, Michaela Conley plays the well-meaning local doctor, Lily Moy is the possibly crazy sister, Clara Maurer is a friendly mad scientist, Josh Suazo is a complicating love interest, Maggie Kerins keeps the house running, and Gunnar Rice is a suave British Actor. Elsa Balles, Telli Quinn, Aleya Daily, Emily Hook, Sage Salvo, and Najla Camilo round out the cast, and Emily Westcott steps out from the technical Crew to play Westcott, the radio technician.
Come see how penguins, cockroaches, convicts, and a mummy play into this situation on May 4 and 5 at 8:00 PM in the MHS Cafeteria. Tickets are $5 at the door.
