A comedy in three acts written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, directed by Dean Calusdian, and jointly produced by the New Prospect Players and Norwood Drama, “The Man Who Came to Dinner” will be performed on June 19th, 20th, 21st at Norwood’s Savage Center.
Tracy Northrup plays the well-known, egomaniacal, blustering, manipulative, and witty writer/radio personality Sheridan Whiteside of New York City on a reading tour of the heartland accompanied by his faithful secretary, Maggie Cutler (Evelyn Seijido). Injured, incapacitated, and effectively trapped at the Ohio home of wealthy industrialist Ernest W. Stanley and family, played by Jack McCarthy, onstage wife Gina Donaher, their son, Ian Cardoni, and daughter, Amanda Hurley, Whiteside threatens to sue the family for negligence leading to his icy fall outside their home, while comically stretching their unwavering hospitality and monopolizing their home and during his extended convalescence. The events that transpire and an unusual stream of visitors and gifts, as well as the lovely Maggie, are followed avidly by Chris Johnson as local newspaperman Bert Jefferson.
New Prospect Player proceeds support the Norwood Drama program.
