Myers Dinner Theatre announces next show

“The Dixie Theatre Goes Vegas!” opens April 25 at Myers Dinner Theatre. The comedic sequel to last season’s “The Dixie Theatre’s First-Ever Gospel Sing” runs through May 17.

Performances are primarily on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, and Friday and Saturday nights, but additional performances may be available.

After their recent success during their first gospel sing benefit, Sandy and Ruth Edna are invited to the “Lucky Break Casino” in Las Vegas for the Gospel Awards Ceremony. While there, Ruth Edna is conned into gambling, and goes too far when she gambles away the deed to the Dixie Theatre. It’s up to Jack, the manager of the casino, and the three performing acts to save the Dixie yet again. Returning groups are the St. Catherine’s Sister Act Tribute Band and This Lil Light of Mine Children’s Choir.

The fast-paced silliness is heightened with four actors playing all three acts as well as various guests throughout the casino.

Performers include Bill Rubenstein of Waynetown as Sandy, manager of the Dixie Theatre, and theatre owner Donna Myers of Waynetown as the sassy janitor, Ruth Edna. Jack Colton, manager of the “Lucky Break Casino” is played by Krista Stuber of Lafayette. The four actors making up the zany ensemble are Michael Moyer of Indianapolis, Mary Anne Cecil of Romney, Mary Keller of Crawfordsville, and Preston Dildine of Mace.

he show is written and directed by Dildine. Abigail Estes of Hillsboro is assistant director, and Connie Meek of Crawfordsville is music director. The show is co-choreographed by Dildine and Brett Wayne Nickle of Hillsboro.

Matinees begin with lunch at noon and the show at 1:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday performances include dinner at 6:30 p.m. and the show at 8 p.m. Cost is $38 (tax not included); students with a valid school ID will be admitted for $27. Group prices are available. Show-only tickets are also available for $21.

For more information or reservations, call the MDT office at (765) 798-4902 ext. 2. The theatre is at 108 Water Street, Hillsboro, and is handicapped-accessible and microphone-free.
