The University of Saint Francis, School of Creative Arts produces two theatrical productions, a musical and a drama, each year. Students are involved in all aspects of production from set construction, light and sound management to performance.
The fall performance is "The Man Who Came to Dinner" a comedy in three acts by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, INC., New York. The Man Who Came to Dinner is set in Ohio in the 1930’s. The play takes place during Christmas. A famous radio personality named Sheridan Whiteside is invited to dinner at the home of a rich factory owner. Before Whiteside enters the house, he falls and hurts his hip. He ends up staying at the home to recover and consequently terrorizes the lives of the rich factory owner and his family.
