Daddy Sherry is 117 years old, and the town is planning a surprise birthday party. The CBC has arrived to interview the old coot, but Daddy Sherry doesn’t care. He’s too busy getting even with Mrs. Allerdice’s yappy dog. He’s speaking his mind and there’s nothing anybody can do about it!
Laughs will fly as high as Daddy Sherry’s trapeze on this wild ride with the kookiest kite you will ever meet!
Nathan Schmidt’s performance as Daddy Sherry over a decade ago is one of the most talked-about comedic performances on our stage. When I read the script again, I laughed out loud! I think that if W.O. Mitchell lived to be 117, he’d be as cantankerous as Daddy Sherry.
