Make a point to see ‘The Dinner Party’

Last weekend brought the opening of “The Dinner Party” at the Historic Everett Theatre. This Neil Simon Play stars our local sweetheart Iris Lilly as Mariette. Iris’ superb performance keeps the audience in the palm of her hand, as her many emotions are revealed. It is a comedy, but there is also drama and suspense as this story unfolds. Curt Shriner, director, and fellow performer gets kudos for a great job as Andre. Mike Conway pleases us with his great portrayal of Claude and Laura Shriner’s energy keeps us on the edge of our seats as the vivacious Yvonne. Ric Calhoun keeps us laughing and touches our heart as Albert. Sam Samano’s dramatic entrance as Gabrielle pulls this play together. You gotta see her shoes!

This play is wonderful. It is a great night out! The tickets are only $10 and $8 for seniors. The Historic Everett Theatre needs our support. Parking is easy and there are several places close by to get some food.

While waiting for the doors to open, we talked with a couple who told us about the Monroe Swifts. Google it, and you will learn something astounding. There are so many wonders and things to do in our area, that we shouldn’t stay at home.

Go to the theater! “The Dinner Party” plays weekends this month. Check it out.
