All are invited to the MSOE Theatre Troupe’s production of Francis Swann’s Out of the Frying Pan, a New York tale of a group of six aspiring stage actors, living together in an apartment directly above famous Broadway producer Arthur Kenny. The group, desperate for work, wants to showcase their dramatic talents for him, but it soon goes horribly wrong, and the police are soon shuffled into the mix!

Shows will take place Saturday, April 27 at 2 p.m. and at 7 p.m., and on Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m. in the Todd Wehr Auditorium, 1047 N. Broadway. Tickets are free for current MSOE students, alumni, and alumni family, and $5 for the general public.
