The play, “The Day They Kidnapped the Pope” is a quirky comedy about a New York Taxi driver who suddenly finds the Pope in his cab and decides to take him home. A siege of his house plus a media circus begins. But all the taxi driver, who is really a nice guy, wants to do is have the Pope declare world peace. Who could object?

We have a large cast for this play which uses all ages. The main cast consists of the taxi driver and his wife, a teenage boy age 18, a teenage girl age 16, the Pope, a cardinal, a rabbi, a sheriff and a general. There are 5 other large parts, news anchors and reporters, which could be either men or women. In addition there are voices off stage, some of which will be recorded. Producer of the play is Sherry Hamilton and the director is Anita Minuth. We can use help on technical staff, especially construction. For further information call Anita at 804-725-7947.
