Please leave a message and someone will call you back.

Here is a decidedly French dinner party served up in a chaotic mode that only a master of comedy could create. Five people are invited to dine at a first rate restaurant in Paris. They do not know who the other guests will be or why they have been invited. Tossed together in a private dining room, they have a sneaking suspicion that this unorthodox dinner party will forever change their lives. John Ritter and Henry Winkler starred in the wildly successful Kennedy Center production and on Broadway.

The Cast: Mark Akey as Claude, Bryan Kirsch as Andre, George Weber as Albert, Larayne Yaeger as Gabrielle, Celeste Galloway as Yvonne and Tricia Chandler as Mariette.

The Crew: Danielle Ryan Assistant Director, Donna Morris, Brandie Jurasin and Nancy Swienton Stage Crew.
