The 1984-1985 season opened with the revival of “Life With Father.” This show was first performed by the Players in the 1948-1949 season. The program for the show had photos of the family in costume taken at the David Davis mansion. The parts of Whitney and Harlan were double cast to let the boys perform on alternate dates. Art Dornaus returned to the Players stage after several years absence to play Father. Irene Taylor was in her first Players’ production as Mother. The show was a critical and financial success.
