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.

    Could you tell me if seats need to be reserved in advance for the Frassati play in Alma? We are bringing a large family from a long distance and wanted to be sure there would be seats. Thank you!

      Sorry for the delay to replay, and for any inconvenience.

      There are no seat reservations, and the play is on a first come, first served basis. If large groups wish to send a few people early to save seats, you can do so, but the troupe requests that the entire group be seated 15 minutes prior to show, as at that time, any empty seats will be filled.

      The venue is a pretty good size, and we don’t expect to be filled to capacity.
