Count your blessings for the comedy "The Last Mass at St. Casimir's!
April 24, 2009
The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn's Professional Theatre ends its current season with the nostalgic comedy, The Last Mass at St. Casimir's, playing May 1-10. If you liked Over the River and Through the Woods, you'll love The Last Mass at St. Casimir's! Gathering to say their final goodbyes to their recently sold childhood home, the hilarious Pazinski siblings and their mother are trapped together by the blizzard of '77 and given the opportunity to come together again as a family. Count your blessings for this endearing comedy that lovingly reminds us that families may grow older, but they rarely grow up. “Imagine Neil Simon for the Catholic working class family”.
A cast of skilled comic TPT veterans has begun rehearsals. Andrew Cruse, last seen at TPT as Eugene in Neil Simon's BILOXI BLUES, will portray youngest brother Rudy, the former Catholic school class clown, now a New York comedy writer. His older sister, Annie is played by Sara Schabach who starred as Lisa Kron in last seasonís production of WELL. Maura O'Brien who was one the soccer moms in this season's opener, SECRETS OF A SOCCER MOM will play Ellen, the mother of the Pazinski brood. David Mason, who played several comic roles in the very popular ALMOST, MAINE plays Georgie. And making his debut at TPT is local actor Matt Delamater, playing the eldest brother, Eddie.
This is definitely a show that makes a great gift for Mother's Day! In addition to the 16th annual silent auction fund-raiser happening in the lobby during the run of the production, Early Bird Subscriptions (offering free bonus tickets!) for the upcoming 09-10 season will be on sale during the run of this show.
The Last Mass at St. Casimir's will be performed at The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn's Professional Theatre, May 1 & 2 at 8pm, May 3rd at 2pm, May 7th at 7pm, May 8 & 9 at 8pm, and May 10th at 2pm. Adults $18, Sr/Stu $16, Group Rate (10+) $14. For tickets call The Public Theatre Box Office at 782-3200.
