Rescue Me, St. Aidan’s 14th original musical comedy written, directed and performed by parishioners and friends continues the tradition of plays about the staff of the fictitious St. Dymphna’s Vicarage. This year the Vicarage staff attempt to rescue dogs from the Animal Care and Control Shelter. Much of the play is told from a dog’s perspective describing what it is like to be loved and abandoned by human companions.
Rescue Me is written and directed by John Wilk, Theatre Professor, City College of San Francisco with musical direction by Scrumbly Koldewyn, legendary Cockettes star. Choreography is by Rachel Nip who has created a memorable Scratch Ballet to Offenbach’s Can-Can. The ensemble includes Robert Ayala, Anne Benninger, Megan Dueck, Dave Frangquist, Dora Guan, Janet Lohr, Rebecca MurrayMetzger, Marc Powell, Dan Rosen, Nancy Sabin and Perry Tom.
The play benefits St. Aidan’s Church and its community outreach programs including the weekly Food Pantry, the monthly Diamond Diners’ Senior Lunch and Resilient Diamond Heights, the neighborhood emergency preparedness workgroup.

What is Dymphna?
St. Aidan’s is at work to create our 14th 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.
A history of our productions is found below.
