Little Theatre of Owatonna is pleased to announce the cast for the spring production, “My Man Godfrey” opening April 20th.
In the depths of the Depression, Godfrey, a “forgotten man,” is rescued from his packing-crate home by ditzy socialite Irene Bullock during the course of a scavenger hunt. Irene offers Godfrey a job as butler to the banking family of Bullocks. Godfrey tolerates their eccentricities, alcoholism and general nuttiness. He cures hangovers, dodges missiles thrown by Irene’s jealous sister, Cornelia, and charms matronly Angelica Bullock, who sees pixies every morning. Irene and Molly, the pert Irish maid, both fall in love with Godfrey, but for Irenee it’s serious-and she’s determined to get her man. Falsely accused by Cornelia of stealing the famous Bullock Pearls (“de bullock boils” according to the detective on the case), Godfrey uses the opportunity to recover his personal finances-and, when the Bullocks end up going broke, he rescues them by getting them all (gasp!) jobs in The Dump, a new nightclub Godfrey has built to provide work for his friends and for the Bullocks, too. Finally, Irene weds her man Godfrey, and it all works out in the end.
