WCHS Warhawk Theatre presents The Man Who Came to Dinner Dec 8-10
Westerville Central High School’s Thespian Troupe 6750 is diving into character roles with their winter production of The Man Who Came to Dinner, a madcap play that serves as a homage to 1930s intellectualism and pop culture.
WCHS theatre director Meredith Casto said the production presents wonderful opportunities for students.
“It's a totally character-driven play which suits our department because my theatre students are so funny and so eager to dive into characters,” she said. “It's been an absolute joy seeing what they've brought to the table and how they've grown.”
Show dates and times include 7 p.m. Dec. 8 and 9; 2 p.m. Dec. 9 and Oct. 10. Seats are $10. Tickets are available on the Warhawks Theatre website.
Written by playwrights George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, The Man Who Came to Dinner tells the story of an eccentric and cantankerous theatre critic who breaks his leg while on a lecture tour in the Midwest and is forced to stay a bit longer at the home of his host family, turning the lives of everyone in the vicinity upside-down.
While the play takes place around the holiday season, it’s not about Christmas, Casto said.
“We can be festive but still tell an intriguing and funny story at the same time,” she said.
