University Theater Presents ‘The Man Who Came To Dinner’
Oct. 15, 2010--The curtain draws open on George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s classic comedy “The Man Who Came to Dinner” on Oct. 21 at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
The show’s cast takes the stage for performances Oct. 21-23 and 28-30. All performances are held at 7:30 p.m. in the Blanche Davis Theater of the Kleinpell Fine Arts building.
This adaptation of a 1939 hit is sure to ring peals of laughter from the audience. While touring a small town in Ohio, Sheridan Whiteside, famous radio broadcaster and columnist, stops by the Stanley residence for dinner. Slipping on the icy front steps, Whiteside does not even make it inside of the Stanley home.
Whiteside must now stay with them until he fully recovers, and little does this family know that they are in for a rude awakening with this unruly, demanding houseguest.
“This production is a nice example of the comic style from this particular time period,” says Ken Stofferahn, designer of the show. “It is a well-written and structured comedy that doesn’t rely solely on cheap gags and tricks.”
The production is directed by Professor Jim Zimmerman. The cast includes:
Logan Arneson, junior, Wisconsin Rapids
