Shreveport Little Theatre announces that it will add dinner theatre to its entertainment offerings, according to SLT’s managing and artistic director Dr. Robert Darrow.
SLT Dinner Theatre’s first production will be held at LeBossier Event Center, 4000 Industrial Drive, Bossier City, Louisiana. Tickets for the dinner and show are $65.00. and are non-refundable. Reservations close March 20.
Performances are scheduled for Friday, March 24 (dinner: 6:00 p.m.– 7:15 p.m., curtain at 7:30 p.m.), and Sunday, March 26 (matinee lunch: 12:00 – 1:15 p.m., curtain at 1:30 p.m.). The ticket price includes a buffet featuring salad, entrée, dessert, and the show, tax, and gratuity. Water, sweet tea, and coffee are included. Vegetarian and gluten free meals are available if requested at the time of the reservation made only through SLT’s box office.
The opening production of SLT Dinner Theatre will be Sylvia, a comedy by A. R. Gurney, about a street-smart mixture of Lab and poodle, Sylvia, who becomes a major bone of contention between a husband and wife. Sylvia offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, the wife, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection.
Despite the amusing premise and the absurdity of a person playing the role of a dog, Sylvia is a comedy meant for adults, with mature language and humor. Children under the age of nine will not be permitted in the theatre for this production. Guests celebrating a special occasion should notify the box office to receive special recognition at the performance.
SLT Dinner Theatre’s inaugural production, Sylvia, will be in collaboration with BPCC’s Theatre department and directed by Dr. Ray Scott Crawford. This production of Sylvia received numerous awards in November at the Texas Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.
SLT board president, Marianne Archibald states, “I see the SLT Dinner Theatre as providing our community theatre with increased viability, new patrons, a more diverse audience base–from both sides of the Red River, and hopefully new revenue for our non-profit organization.”
SLT Dinner Theatre seating is limited. Reservations must be made by March 20. To reserve your dinner and a show tickets, call SLT’s box office at (318) 424-4439 or online at www.ShowTix4U.com.
