    CVLT to present the heartwarming comedy "The Curious Savage"

CHAGRIN FALLS, OH - John Patrick's heartwarming comedy THE CURIOUS 
SAVAGE opened in 1950 on Broadway with Lillian Gish in the title role. 
Less than a year after the Broadway debut, Chagrin Valley Little Theatre 
staged the play on its River Street Playhouse stage. Now, after a 
sixty-four year absence, this family-friendly story returns to the CVLT 
stage under the direction of Laurel Bryant.

THE CURIOUS SAVAGE follows the misadventures of Mrs. Ethel P. Savage 
(Priscilla Kaczuk). The charitable widow has been left $10,000,000 
dollars by her late husband, and has established a fund to help others 
make their hopes and dreams come true. However, her greedy adult 
stepchildren Titus (Bobby Thomas), Lily Belle (Erika Hansen), and Samuel 
(Craig Gifford), want the money for themselves. Hoping to bring Mrs. 
Savage to her senses, the children commit her to The Cloisters, a 
"sanatorium." There she meets a variety of social misfits who need the 
kind of help Mrs. Savage can provide. There's the motherly Florence (Sue 
Cohen), the child-like pathological liar Fairy May (Laura Hart), the shy 
former military pilot Jeffrey (Chris DiMichele), the aspiring but 
terrible violinist Hannibal (Mark DePompei) and the cantankerous 
seascape painter, Mrs. Paddy (Lisa Tarr). Managing this zany crew are 
Dr. Emmett (David Gaines) and nurse/administrator Miss Wilhelmina (Talia 
Valline). With the help of her new friends, Mrs. Savage conspires to rid 
herself of the self-seeking stepchildren, leading them on a merry chase 
and raising the ultimate question of just who the sane people are.

THE CURIOUS SAVAGE plays on the CVLT main stage at 40 River Street in 
Chagrin Falls, Friday and Saturday nights at 8 PM, March 28 - April 12. 
Tickets are $18 regular, $14 student/senior. Reservations are 
recommended. Tickets for all CVLT productions can be purchased online at 
CVLT.org or by phone at 440-247-8955 between 1-6 PM, Monday through 
Saturday. CVLT is generously funded by Cuyahoga County residents through 
Cuyahoga Arts and Culture and supported by the Ohio Arts Council.
