St. Thomas students to perform 'George Washington Slept Here'
The drama department at St. Thomas High School will be presenting “George Washington Slept Here,” a three-act comedy, from Friday, Oct. 14 through Sunday, Oct. 16.
Written by playwrights Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, “George Washington Slept Here” was first produced in 1940. The satirical comedy tells the story of Newton Fuller, who longs to escape city life and settle in the country. Fuller buys his dream house, which George Washington apparently slept in, without letting his wife know and bargains for a lot more than he expected.
The school production has more than 50 student participants, all of whom have taken on roles as actors, set designers, costume designers and crew for the production, under the direction of Dan Green.
The play will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 15, and at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16. All performances will take place in St. Thomas's Cemo Auditorium. Tickets cost $10 for students and $12 for adults.
St. Thomas High School is located at 4500 Memorial Drive, at the corner of Memorial and Shepherd.
