Celico stages "The Last Supper"

Published March 14. 2013 4:00AM

Eugene J. Celico's stage piece inspired by Leonardo DaVinci's painting of "The Last Supper" returns.

It's timed, naturally, to be performed near Palm Sunday.

The drama follows along from the time the women set the supper table, through the apostles' reflecting on their relationship with Jesus, to Mary's speaking with her son for the last time.

This Stage Door Theater Company production is written, produced and directed by Celico. The production is an hour and 20 minutes, with no intermission. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the St. Vincent DePaul Society.
