Clayton Community Theatre announces the cast for 

The Philadelphia Story, by Philip Barry, 

directed by Heather Sartin.

In accordance with the current restrictions, all remaining performances of Clayton Community Theatre's production of The Philadelphia Story are canceled.

 

Please come and see us in July when (we hope) we will present Neil Simon's classic comedy Broadway Bound.

 

Synopsis:

The 1940 film starred Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn and James Stewart based on the Broadway play of the same name by Philip Barry. The story is about Philadelphia socialite, Tracy Lord, whose wedding plans are complicated by the arrival of both her ex-husband and a magazine journalist. The socialite character of the play was inspired by Helen Hope Montgomery Scott (1904-1995), a Philadelphia socialite known for her hijinks, who married a friend of the playwright Barry. This play is considered one of the best examples of a “comedy of remarriage,” a popular genre in the 1930’s-1940’s.
