Hitzeman Theatre Night 2015

Hitzeman Theatre Night 2015

On April 22, 2015, we hosted our 5th Theatre Night at the Theatre of Western Springs.

Man Who Came to Dinner2Our guests were transported to the golden age of radio, The Man Who Came to Dinner by Kaufman & Hart. A noted radio personality and egotistical tyrant, Sheridan Whiteside, slips and falls on the steps of the Stanley family residence. He’s forced to spend several weeks of recuperation, wreaking havoc and mischief to the lives of everyone with whom he comes in contact. We joined the Stanleys as ex-convicts were invited to meals, transatlantic calls bring a $784 phone bill, penguins take residence in the library, an octopus moves into the cellar, 10,000 cockroaches take over the kitchen… and then there’s the mysterious mummy case.

This event and parking is completely complimentary to our guests.

A desert buffet of goodies during the intermission was catered by Chef Debbie Barta of Chef’s Ahoy. Information: www.chefs-ahoy.com.

We had a tremendous turn out for this year’s event and forward to hosting another fun-filled night of theatre in 2016.
