Celebrating 10 years with Many Hats!
Many Hats Theatre Company is closing out our celebratory Tenth Season with an hilarious comedy by Phil Olson A Nice Family Gathering our 50th production!!
A Nice Family Gathering is the story of Dad (Jamie Eberle) who loved his wife so much, he almost told her. It’s Thanksgiving Day and the first family gathering at the Lundeen household since the Patriarch died.
At the gathering, Dad comes back as a ghost with a mission; to tell his wife (Eleanor Walker) he loved her, something he neglected to tell her while he was alive. After all, they were only married for 45 years. The problem is, she can’t hear or see him. So he attempts to use his son Carl (Andrew Knudsen) to channel his message. Michael and Stacy (Rob McCaffery and Dana Zumpano-Gin) have secrets to reveal as well as Jill, Michael’s wife (Anita Reimer) The trouble begins when Mom invites Jerry (James Wood) for dinner much to Dad’s chagrin!
Eric Hanston and Ed Schneider direct and Ben Amos wears the producer’s hat. Judy Byer and Susan Gibbs stage manage.
A Nice Family Gathering opens November 9 and runs until December 2. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00 Sunday matinees at 2:00.
