The Man Who Came To Dinner Cast and Staffing Needs

"The Man Who Came To Dinner" by George S. Kauffman and Moss Hart will be our second production of the 2017-18 season. Directed by Keith Brown.

We are seeking male actors for the following roles:

Bert Jefferson- late 20's to early 40's - The owner and editor of the Mesalia Journal. He is smart and a genuinely nice guy. He naïvely allows himself to be lured by Lorraine, not realizing the consequences, only excited that his play might get produced. He is genuinely in love with Maggie.

John - late 20’s to early 40’s - The Stanleys' butler who has been around awhile. A very nice person, efficient and star-struck.

Sandy- 20’s to 30’s - a labor-organizer in Mr. Stanley's factory. In love with Mr. Stanley’s daughter, June.

Westcott- 20's – up is the head radioman and announcer.

Men of any age to play deliverymen, radiomen, convicts, and policemen.

Synopsis: Sheridan Whiteside, critic, lecturer, wit, radio orator, intimate friend of the great and near great, met his Waterloo in the shape of a small piece of ice on the doorstep of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest W. Stanley, of Mesalia, Ohio, while trekking across the country on his annual lecture tours. Result: the idol of the air waves rests until further notice in the home of the surprised Mr. and Mrs, Stanley. Possibility: Christmas may be postponed this year. So runs the lead article in the Christmas 1939 issue of Time magazine. Whiteside turns the Stanley household upside down, forcing everyone in town to cater to his egotistical demands. Meanwhile, his beloved secretary has given her notice after falling in love with a local reporter, and Whiteside must engage every weapon in his considerable arsenal of guile and manipulation to keep her in his employ—including blackmail, deceit, and the intervention of a femme fatale actress Lorraine Sheldon and the elegant British wit of playwright Beverly Carlton. A three-ring circus of machinations and celebrity appearances ensues.
