Father Mike Show Coming Up on March 21

Author: Kevin Allen

One of Notre Dame Law School’s most popular traditions is coming up later this month.

The Father Mike Show – an evening of music and comedy that spotlights the Law School’s talent and raises money for scholarships – is set for 7 p.m. March 21 at Legends of Notre Dame.

The event is named in honor of the Rev. Michael Dillon McCafferty, a beloved Law School faculty member and assistant dean who died of lymphatic cancer in 1987.

The Student Bar Association organizes the Father Mike Show.

Attendees at this year’s show can expect to see musical performances by students and professors, a sketch styled after Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update,” cultural dances, and funny videos, said Zach Milvo, 3L, the SBA’s secretary.

“It’s just a really fun time,” Milvo said of the Father Mike Show tradition. “It’s a night when people let their hair down, drop their textbooks, and spread some joy.”

Father Mike Show tickets will be on sale for $12 cash or credit for the remainder of this week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Law School Commons. They will be available after spring break for $15 cash or credit. Tickets at the door on March 21 will cost $15 cash only.

The ticket price includes food and non-alcoholic drinks. A cash bar will be available.

The event, as usual, will also feature the opportunity to bid on a variety of auction items – including dinners at professors’ homes, Chicago Blackhawks tickets, dodgeball at Skyzone, and whiskey, wine, and beer tastings.

Door prizes and raffles will be part of the evening, too.
