It’s time to relive holidays past by remembering the fun times had with the guest who overstayed their welcome. South Texas College’s Theatre Program begins its spring season with Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” The show runs from Feb. 23 to 25, 2012 at 8 p.m. each evening, with a Sunday matinee on Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. The production will be held at STC’s Pecan Campus Cooper Center for Communication Arts located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd in McAllen.
Directed by STC Theatre Director, Joel Jason Rodriguez, “The Man Who Came to Dinner” tells the story of Sheridan Whiteside, a famous radio personality and literary critic, who has dined at the home of the Stanley’s and slips on their doorstep, breaking his hip. Everyone is then left to endure Mr. Whiteside’s recuperation including dining with ex-convicts, a $784 phone bill, penguins in the library, an octopus in the cellar, 10,000 cockroaches in the kitchen, the arrival of a mummy case, a whirlwind romance and the planning of a trip around the world.
Tickets are $5 for STC students, faculty and staff members, senior citizens and members of the military. General admission is $10. The Sunday matinee production will be interpreted in American Sign Language by student interns from STC’s Interpreter Training Program.
