After the success of "Matts First Real Thanksgiving" last season and for the second consecutive year, Cassidy Theatre is partnering with local Cleveland Artists to produce a full length staged reading of a local work on the Cassidy Stage!   

From the playwright:

This play about the consequences of making the decision to downsize as a result of advancing age and the oncoming economic limitations. It investigates how it forces people to change when they may not want to spiritually and emotionally. It illustrates the way in which friends and family are involved in the decision process and how it touches everyone personally. It examines the loss involved in moving from a long-established home and neighborhood. It demonstrates the void downsizing can create in other people’s lives. It also speaks to the way it such a change can cause conflict and resentment in a long-standing marital relationship. THE DOWNSIDE is about more than a garage sale and moving to an apartment.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Lyrics By:  Chad Beguelin

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
