The Minstrel Players Theatre Company of Northport Village celebrates its 15th year as one of the region’s top Theatre groups with its 50th production–a staging of the classic Kaufman and Hart comedy The Man Who Came To Dinner.

Performances of The Man Who Came To Dinner will be over two weekends at 8:00p.m. on Saturday, April 25 and May 2, as well as  two matinee performances at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 26 and May 3 at Houghton Hall – Trinity Episcopal Church, 130 Main Street, Northport.

This show is the perfect vehicle for a large group or repertory company as there are nearly 30 roles and every one–from the smallest cameo to the most outrageous featured character–is hysterical. This is the 4th time The Minstrel Players are staging this classic comedy, the last time was in 2008, and the following Minstrels are returning from that production: Ray Palen, Jim Connors and Evan Donnellan. Ray Palen is doing double duty as both director and lead character–the incomparable Sheridan Whiteside who is based on the acerbic wit of Alexander Woolcott of the infamous Vicious Circle at the Algonquin Round Table. The infamous Round Table at the Algonquin also included the likes of Dorothy Parker, Harpo Marx and Noel Coward, among others.

The ‘World Class’ crew is rounded out with Robert Cashman, Technical Director; Debbie Palen, House Manager; Christina Fink, Assistant Director; Esteban Lopez, Stage Manager; and Bernard Caprera, Lighting Director.

The Minstrel Players are committed to bringing high quality, affordable theater to the Long Island Region. Tickets are $20.00 for adults and $15.00 for Seniors and Children under 12. Group tickets are available for parties of 10+. For more information please call (631) 732-2926 or visit the Minstrel Player’s official website at .
