Silver Summer Dinner Theatre Kicks Off at Plymouth State

Plymouth State University’s Theatre Program along with the Silver Center for the Arts will present the Broadway smash comedy-thriller Deathtrap starting June 30 and running until July 15. This is the inaugural summer for the Silver Summer Dinner Theatre, where audiences can enjoy a great dinner, drinks, and a show. Plymouth State Deathtrap tickets go on sale soon. There are two types of seating available for this event, which be staged in the air-conditioned Studio Theatre.

“Audiences love Deathtrap,” said PSU Director of Theatre Paul Mroczka, “because it offers a great evening of summer entertainment. It’s filled with comedy, surprises, deceptions, and, of course, murder.” Mroczka added, “One wonderful aspect of this production is that it’s a dinner theatre. You can come with family and friends and have a great dinner while enjoying a fun show all for $55.00 a person! Plus there will be a cash bar.”

Although some dinners will be available for those who purchase Plymouth State Deathtrap tickets the day of the show, it’s highly recommended that patrons order tickets at least two days prior to the performance. This assures that they will be able to order the menu item of their choice. Wait-service is provided and the cash bar opens one hour before the show and remains open until after intermission.

The menu includes a selection of three entrees specifically created for the comedy-thriller murder mystery. Choices include “Murder at Steak”, sliced tenderloin with blue cheese demi; “Decapitated Butcher Shop Chicken”, roasted chicken marsala; and “Victimless Veggie”, grilled portobello and quinoa stack with white beans. The “Heart Attack”, strawberry shortcake, will be served at intermission. The beef and chicken dishes are served with mashed potatoes and the vegetable of the day.

Mroczka observed, “For the region, dinner theatre is a unique experience. It offers audiences a fantastic all-around afternoon or evening of entertainment. We’ve also accommodated those who want to see the play and enjoy a drink or two, but not dine. Tickets for the show only with cash bar are $25.00.”

Performances in week one are on June 30 at 7 p.m., and July 1 at 1 p.m. Shows during the second week are offered on July 5 at 7 p.m., July 6 at 7 p.m., July 7 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., and July 8 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. The final week includes shows on July 13 at 7 p.m., July 14 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., and July 15 at 1 p.m. is the final show.
