CASSOPOLIS -- Having company for breakfast can be unnerving in itself, but when the company is God, the situation can be filled with additional excitement and humor.
Charles Wright of Union and Carol Senger of Cassopolis will be playing Harry and Beatrice Katzman on Sunday, April 25, in "When God Comes for Breakfast, You Don't Burn the Toast."
Their morning starts off on the wrong foot after the couple overslept and don't have the ingredients for the breakfast they planned for their guest.
Let's hope God, played by John Hill of Dowagiac, likes cereal.
The one-act play, written by Gary Apple and produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, brings together the commonplace and the totally unexpected.
Senger promises that the "end product is an intriguing and entertaining theatrical experience that is guaranteed to leave the audience feeling better than when they came in."
The Geneva Prairie Cameo Players will join the actors from the Barn Swallow Theatre at the Cass County Council on Aging on Decatur Road east of Cassopolis for this special afternoon dinner theater presentation beginning at 3 p.m.
Seating begins at 2:30 p.m.
A musical interlude will be provided by Bev Smith of Cassopolis, followed by three skits.
Larry Kling of Jones and Joyce Klimek of Vandalia will appear in "It's a Small World."
The final piece will be Kling and Love in "A Bench in a Park."
The production is directed by Karl Crisler of Cassopolis and sponsored by Barn Swallow Theatre and the Council on Aging.
The menu will include chicken cordon bleu, with baked potato or meat loaf with mashed potatoes and gravy.
Either entree includes vegetable, bread, dessert, gratuity and tax.
Reservations by April 19 are required, with the $22.50 donation being sent to: Carol Senger, 508 Darwin St., Cassopolis, MI 49031.
Checks are to be made out to Barn Swallow Theatre.
Call Senger at 269/445-2511 with meal choice. No tickets will be sold at the door.
