Father McGivney Catholic High School News & Events
• The Father McGivney Catholic High School Drama Club will be putting on “Curse of the Werewolf” for this year’s production. Showtimes are Friday, April 21st at 7 pm and Saturday, April 22nd at 1 pm and 7 pm. Tickets are sold at the door and are $3 for students and $5 for adults. Come out, support the arts and enjoy the performance and spread the word!

The plot: Buzz Halliburton, an entertainer fallen on hard times, is summoned by his mysterious uncle to Gargoyle House, a spooky castle on a lonely New England island. Buzz and his partner, Admiral Byrd (a penguin who tap dances to “Puttin’ on the Ritz”) encounter a bizarre assortment of “family” and “friends.” Colonel Snipes plots to blow up the island while his wife wears evening gowns all day. Little Messalina, the resident child terror, keeps baby piranhas for pets. The menacing housekeeper often appears without her head. Due to a family curse there is a werewolf in the house, and the gardener is probably insane. Murders abound, lights flicker, and romance blossoms in this crazy spoof which will keep the audience howling.
