Doane Theatre to Present "Oh Dad, Poor Dad..."

Doane College will present the comedy "Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad," during the college's Homecoming celebration, Oct. 7-9.

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Whitcomb Lee Conservatory, 1014 Boswell Ave., in Crete.

"Oh Dad Poor Dad" opens as the domineering Madame Rosepetal and her son, Jonathan, arrive at their Caribbean hotel room with a massive amount of cargo, including a coffin containing the stuffed corpse of Madame Rosepetal's husband. Rosepetal arranges a meeting between her socially awkward son and Rosalie, a professional baby-sitter, in a ploy to even further control him, but Jonathan finds himself yearning for Rosalie and freedom. Meanwhile, his mother endures the amorous advances of Commodore Rosabove until she turns the tables on him. In the midst of all this the deceased father hangs over the play literally and figuratively before triggering the play's topsy-turvy conclusion.

Tickets are $5 or free with a Doane ID, and can be purchased at the door.
