            The Curious Savage is a warm comedy that compares the

    kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the greed and

    hostility of so-called “normal people.” It opened in New York on

    Broadway in 1950 and played 331 performances with star Lillian Gish

    in the title role.


          This is not the first time that this show has graced the stage of

     the Thomas F. Kelly Theatre.  CHS staged this show in the spring of 

     2011 featuring Ms. Jessica Appl in the role of Fairy Mae.  Ms. Appl is

     currently the Assistant Director for plays at Aberdeen Central.
