The Damon Runyan Theater:  Madame La Gimp
and The Fabulous Dr. Tweedy:  The Farmer

  April 27 at 2pm  Cross of Glory Lutheran Church  95 Cambridge Dr.  Aberdeen, NJ  07747

 

 

Damon Runyon is famous for penning stories and characters that the musical "Guys & Dolls" was based on.  His unforgettable characters were habitués of the street:  gamblers, fight managers and race track bookies.  This one is a hilarious Cinderella story that you don't want to miss!

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Tweedy was played by Frank Morgan (the titular Wizard in "The Wizard of Oz).  In this episode, Tweedy plays makeover artist and matchmaker for a lonely lady farmer. He is aided in this endeavor by Mr.Welby, once  a homeless prize-fighter.
