German Dinner Theatre
We'll start our dinner theatre tour in Germany with an Oktoberfest celebration of food and fairy tales, compliments of Wilhelm and Jacob (the brothers Grimm.) An evening of German cuisine, folktales, music, poetry (maybe) and historical context (definitely). It's good food and entertainment with some academic value.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
Just in time to get you cranked up for Christmas is run number eleven of our enduring offering to Rocky Mount. Again we present the "typical" church Christmas pageant until, of course, it gets hijacked by the Herdmans. See why Beth Bradley calls them, "The worst kids in the whole history of the world."
