Frassati Play

Posted on Updated on

Under the direction of Michelle Kuhar, the Shady Characters of the Frassati Society of Detroit are welcoming requests for parish performances in 2016.

This is the story of a young man who was beatified by John Paul II in 1990. In spite of a less-then-perfect home life, this student, jokester, friend, servant of the poor, and mountain climber, became an extraordinary example of lay holiness for us all. Come laugh, cry, and be moved by the incredible story of this young, modern saint. A free will offering will be taken.

Note:  The play is recommended for ages 8+ due to both duration and content.  The play lasts about 1.5 hours.  Infants can be brought to the performance, but out of respect for the performers and the audience, the troupe requests parents be prepared to carefully exit with crying or excessively disruptive infants or small children.
