Spotlight Players senior group, Still Got It Players, is proud to present the hilarious comedy, “Men Are Dogs” by Joseph Simonelli, in the Biltmore Studio at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton, MI November 3-5 & 10-12, 2017.
Hilarity ensues as Dr. Cecelia Monahan runs a support group for single and divorced women. As a therapist, she must listen to a number of relationship problems from her unusual cadre of patients as well as dealing with the unsolicited advice of her live-in mother on subjects ranging from dating to cooking recipes. The doctor, however, is not above using some unorthodox methods of her own such as hiring out of work actors to role play with her patients. It is only when Cecelia meets the new substitute package delivery man that the doctor must learn to practice what she preaches.
Director Joe Arcel has crafted this comedy into a performance you will not want to miss. This story is cleverly portrayed by a very talented cast. Brigid Blaschak (Farmington Hills) plays the lead Dr. Cecelia Monahan who not only helps her patients, but learns valuable lessons along the way. Marian Busa (Canton) plays Cecelia’s mother Rose who dates too many different men at one time according to her daughter. Lynette Wehner (Canton) plays Madeline, who has dated men who court multiple women at once without informing Madeline. Kathy Millspaugh (Milan) plays Loretta, who seems to have a thing for cops. Anne Morgan (Livonia) plays Jane, who goes for men with very unusual careers. Sandy McCay (Canton) plays Allison, who appears to have a thing for men with a first name starting with the letter B. Frank McCay (Canton) plays the charming delivery man Bob, who seems to know all the right things to say. Jay Fischer (Saline) plays the out of work actor Tony who doesn’t always say the right things to appease the ladies. Together these characters will make you laugh out loud, and you will leave the theater with a smile.
“Men Are Dogs” cast members Sandy and Frank McCay are married in real life and this will be their fourth Still Got It Players production during their 33 years of marriage. Frank McCay says of performing with his wife, “We find ourselves using lines from the play in everyday conversation and calling each other by our character name.” Similarly, Sandy McCays says, “We get to meet new people, and I consider it almost like a date night. I make him take me out after rehearsals.”
