Casserole Casanova follows the story of Roger, a recent widower who after the death of his wife begins receiving meals from the ladies in town who are concerned that he isn’t eating properly. As the story unfolds, we discover that it is not Roger’s nutrition they interested in! Each caller has a fantasy all her own which she eventually reveals. During this short period of time, his good buddy Fred tries to warn Roger about the ‘hidden desires’ these women have. Roger does not believe Fred and hilarity ensues. Casserole Casanova is full of fun competition and laughter from start to finish!
Casserole Casanova is the second play by Herb McCollom Jr. that Spotlight ‘Still Got It’ Players have produced. Last March, ‘Still Got It’ produced The Geezer Games, which was widely received. Long-time Spotlight member and current Vice-President, Joe Arcel, was featured in The Geezer Games playing Frank Donofrio.
This March, Arcel has transitioned into the role of director and as a first-time leader of a ‘Still Got It’ production, Arcel could not be more thrilled with his talented cast and his producer, Laura Kitzman. When asked why he selected Casserole Casanova, Arcel said, “I like the idea of the story, there is always a ever present need to move forward in life and even in unhappy times life can be filled with fantasies and humor.”
For an afternoon full of entertainment, join the Director Joe Arcel of Plymouth, Producer, Laura Kitzman of Canton, and the cast of Casserole Casanova!
