February 6, 2006

MILWAUKEE - The Wisconsin Lutheran College theatre department presents The Man Who Came to Dinner by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart February 22-26 in the Raabe Theatre. The February 22-24 performances begin at 8 p.m., and the February 25-26 performances begin at 3 p.m. In celebration of the theatre department's 10th season in the Raabe, WLC theatre alumni join with current students to present this classic comedy. The Man Who Came to Dinner is directed by Professor Jan Nelson.

When world renowned lecturer and critic, Sheridan Whiteside, slips on the icy sidewalk of the Stanley residence on his way out after dinner and fractures his hip, the Stanley's Christmas turns into one they will never forget. Whiteside completely takes over the Stanley household, creating domestic chaos of every kind. At the same time, Whiteside's indispensable secretary, Maggie, falls in love with a local newsman, shaking up Whiteside's own life.
