KPI’s spring production, The Day They Kidnapped The Pope, is rehearsing hard for its opening on May 2. This delightful comedy, set in 1970s New York, opens with a taxi driver kidnapping the visiting Pope and holding him for ransom in his home. Add a wife, two teenage children, a Rabbi, and a Cardinal, and mayhem erupts. Many offstage voices and a cacophony of explosions add to fun and chaos in this ‘comedy with a message’.

The play opens at the Urbandale Arts Centre in the Municipal Centre in Kemptville and will run from May 2-5. Evening performances are at 7:30 pm and the Sunday matinee at 2:00 pm. Dinner theatre unavailable for this show. Tickets are $15.00 and will be available for purchase at B&H Grocery, Business Strategies, the Municipal Centre, and at the door. Online tickets at www.kemptvilleplayers.ca.
