Philadelphia Eagles’ Hall of Famer Tommy McDonald was the famously tough wide receiver who helped take the Birds to the 1960 NFL Championship game. Beloved Philly sports commentator Ray Didinger’s autobiographical show, Tommy and Me, recounts a seminal time in Ray’s life when he helped his lifelong hero get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Tommy was drafted by the Eagles in 1957 and played on the team until 1964. At Franklin Field, he helped the Eagles win against Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers. There will be talk-backs after most performances that will include the cast, director Joe Canuso and playwright Ray Didinger.
HEALTH & SAFETY
DTC is committed to providing healthy facilities to ensure the safety of all actors, production staff, theatre employees and audience members. As public health conditions and state and federal guidance for performing arts and live entertainment change, DTC will remain flexible, adapting to applicable health and safety protocols at the time of performance. These protocols may include mask enforcement, proof of vaccination, negative test verification, and potentially more. Specific protocols are subject to change. DTC will clearly communicate protocols to ticket holders in advance of their performance.
DTC reserves the right to deny admission to the venue to anyone who does not comply with these protocols. We will not provide refunds in this case.
Delaware Theatre Company will be requiring patrons who attend our production of Tommy and Me, October 6–17, to show proof of vaccination before entering the theatre or a negative COVID test within 72 hours before showtime. Also, following CDC guidelines, we are requiring everyone inside the building to properly wear masks at all times.
