Second Sunday Dinner Theatre

February 12, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

After a hiatus, this group is resuming under the auspices of Humanist Hangouts. The first meeting will be on Sunday, Feb. 12 (the second Sunday in February). The play will be “Angry, Raucous and Shamelessly Gorgeous,” by Pearl Cleage.

The Second Sunday Dinner Theatre is a combination potluck dinner (for eating an socializing) and the performance of a play (for entertaining and being entertained).

Before each meeting, a play is chosen and cast from among the members. There is one rehearsal, essentially a read-through. Plays vary widely, as a different person chooses the play each time. Costumes and props are entirely optional. No one memorizes anything. Talent or experience is not required.

No one is required to act, either. We need an audience.

Everyone, whether actor or audience, brings something for the potluck (appetizer, main dish [can be vegetarian], vegetable or side dish, or dessert).

We meet at 5:30 p.m. for appetizers; then the cast (typically four to six members, depending on the play) performs Act I; then we break for the first course of dinner; then the cast performs Act II; then we have dessert.

This formula has been so successful that the group endured for almost 50 years (!) before sputtering to a stop under COVID.
