Dymphna Theatrical Players
November 11 & 12 at 7:30 pm
November 13 at 2:00 pm
The Hop, St. Aidan’s 13th original musical comedy, continues our tradition of plays about the staff and parishioners of the fictitious St. Dymphna’s Vicarage starting with the very first play, St. Dymphna’s 13th Annual Bingo and Cabaret Extravaganza in 2003. This year the members of the St. Dymphna’s Amateur Acting Company are pulled apart by competing efforts to win the chance to perform at the Episcopalian Sock Hop and Skit Performance Arts Gala and Auction.
Cast members Robert Ayala, Anne Benninger, Dave Frangquist, Janet Lohr, Rebecca Murray Metzger, Rachel Nip, Amiel Puducay, Dan Rosen, Nancy Sabin, Patty Devlieg, and Perry Tom are hard at work dancing, singing and creating this trip down memory lane featuring many favorite hits from the 1950’s. The play is written and directed by John Wilk with musical direction by Scrumbly Koldewyn.
Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets, brownpapertickets.com, and by mail. Tickets will be sold after the 8:00 am and 10:00 am services as of October 23 and at the door.

What is Dymphna?
St. Aidan’s is at work to create our 13th original musical comedy written, directed and performed by parishioners and a few friends. Our musical creations are fondly named after St. Dymphna. The plays focus on the misadventures of the staff at St. Dymphna’s Vicarage. The shows help raise funds to support St. Aidan’s outreach activities and serve as fun community building events.
This year's show is written by John Wilk, CCSF Theatre Professor. In the play, the Dymphnans will attempt to raise funds for the Vicarage by planning a dance hop while singing many 1950’s favorites.
