Preparations Continue for Elbert Theatre’s Dinner and Show Event

March 6, 2014

After a lengthy absence, the whole routine of dinner and a show is making a return to the Elbert Theatre.

Partnering with Main Street Elberton, the Elbert Theatre is holding a dinner and a show viewing of the first 2014 Encore Production, Barefoot in the Park.

Elbert Theatre Director Toni King says this version of dinner and a show is going to be slightly different that what has been done in the past.

“This is the first time we have done it in a really long time, and this is the first time I can recall us doing in conjunction with a restaurant location, instead of having the restaurant coming to cater to the theatre, and I think that is the main difference”, said Toni King. “It’s going to be a lot of fun, and hopefully if everything goes well with this one, we’ll have it with all our other main stage shows.”

Following the dinner, patrons will make their way towards the Elbert Theatre for what King says is one of the most popular community theatre shows.

She explains what those attending can expect from the Neil Simon comedy.

“The story is about this newly wed couple that doesn’t really know each other that well, its one of those relationships. The girl is very free spirited, and the guy very straight forward and by the book”, said King. “So that is the jest of the show.”

Dinner and show tickets are thirty dollars per person and are only available for the Saturday showings of Barefoot in the Park on March 15th and March 22nd.

Season ticket holders will only have to pay twenty dollars to add the dinner to their existing ticket.


King says space is limited and reservations are filling up quickly, so to be able to partake call (706) 213-3204.
