Fr. Scheid Players Open 39th Season with - The Man Who Came to Dinner

The Catholic Youth Apostolate is pleased to announce that the Fr. William Scheid Players will open their 39th season with The Man Who Came to Dinner, a Broadway favorite about a noted cultural critic and radio show personality who, while on a national speaking tour visits the Ohio home of the prominent and conservative Stanley family. He slips on the ice, breaks his hip, and the local doctor says he must remain confined there. Whiteside turns the Stanley household upside down, forcing everyone in town to cater to his egotistical demands. A three-ring circus of machinations and celebrity appearances ensues.

This year’s cast features two priests of the Archdiocese, Monsignor Norb Ernst of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Parish and Fr. Bill Wigand of Regina Cleri, along with talented adult performers from the Archdiocese.

Performance dates are:

  • Friday, March 16 at 7:30 pm
  • Saturday, March 17 at 7:30 pm
  • Sunday, March 18 at 2:00 pm
