  Charley's Aunt at St. Bonaventure Church

Charley's Aunt

St. Bonaventure Church
1625 W. Diversey Chicago

In Charley's Aunt, Jack and Charley invite their young ladies to meet Charley's wealthy aunt from Brazil, who will serve as their chaperone. But when she cancels her visit at the last minute, the millionaire aunt sends the boys into cataclysmic confusion. What do they do now? They solve the problem by drafting their feckless Oxford undergrad pal into a black satin skirt, bloomers and wig.

Windy City Times - Highly Recommended

"...One of the advantages to a membership-based company like the Saint Sebastian Players ( celebrating its 40th anniversary next year ), however, is the group rapport developed by performers working together over decades. While the heaviest lifting may fall upon Sean Michael Barrett-whose extended impersonation of the titular kinswoman calls to mind Nathan Lane-each of his teammates shoulder their share of the airborne progress at every second. Director Jack Dugan Carpenter likewise never permits his show's panoramic intricacy to eclipse its individual components, nor does dialect consultant Lizzie Williams allow the accents to fray at the edges, or stage manager Kaeley Osterman sanction scene changes devolving into noisy furniture removals."

NewCity Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...Director Jack Dugan Carpenter’s mostly newly-graduated cast does a sparkling job of this play, particularly after they relaxed into the evening. Garrett Wiegel (Jack) makes a charming study of a youngster looking for his place in affairs of both the heart and the world at large. Joshua Paul Wright (Charley) turns in a warm-hearted second banana. Lizzie Williams (Kitty) simply glitters and it is easy to see why she has turned Jack starry-eyed. Stephanie Price (Amy) plays a bit more grounded, while just as upside-down for Charley, and makes a nice balance for the quartet of lovers."
