2020 SEASON

Celebrating 56 “Dinnertaining” Years
Mahalia Square.jpg
Mahalia


A joyous celebration of life and music of the world’s greatest gospel singer: a humble, deeply religious woman whose expressive, full throated voice carried her from a three room shanty in New Orleans to appear before presidents and royalty. The joy and inspiration of her songs provide a counterpoint to messages delivered by her friend, Martin Luther King Jr. Standing at his side, Mahalia Jackson became the musical voice of the civil rights movement.

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s - when Wall Street was hot and 8-tracks were cool! Three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do - even in a man’s world! This hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought provoking, and even a little romantic.

Elvis Has Left The Building

 

It's December 20th, 1970, and Elvis Presley has disappeared. No one, not even his wily manager, "The Colonel", knows of his whereabouts. But the Colonel is all shook up because he has racked up a secret debt -- and with the King himself missing, the only way to pay it off is to find an Elvis impersonator within 24 hours. Hijinks ensue as the Colonel takes desperate measures to replace a man who is irreplaceable, all while keeping the prying eyes of a nosy reporter at bay and figuring out what happened to the real Elvis.
