MDT opens 24th season with touching comedy

The Savannah Sipping Society opens Feb. 7


HILLSBORO — Myers Dinner Theatre in Hillsboro will kick-off its 24th anniversary season with the laugh-a-minute comedy, The Savannah Sipping Society, opening at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 7 and running through 5 p.m. Feb. 23. Melt those winter blues with this honest depiction of life, grief and female friendship, which has taken regional theatres by storm.

Four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are together by Fate, and an impromptu happy hour. They decide it is high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life that they have lost through the years. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these women successfully bond, and find the confidence to jumpstart their lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment — and most importantly, they realize it is never too late to make new old friends.

This delightful comedy will be directed by MDT artistic director Jeremy Littlejohn and will feature an almost entirely alumni ensemble, including Maddie Casto of Columbus, Ohio, as Marlafaye, Mary Anne Cecil of Romney as Dot and Sarah Hayes of Clinton, Iowa, as Jinx. Joining this outstanding trio of women will be Kristina Miranda Sloan of Tucson, Arizona, as Randa, who is making her MDT debut.

Weekday and Saturday matinees seat for dinner at noon and the curtain is at 1:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday evening performances seat for dinner at 6 p.m. with curtain at 8 p.m. and Sunday twilight with seating for dinner at 5 p.m. and curtain at 6:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased by phone at 765-798-4902, ext. 2, or by visiting our website at www.myersdt.com.
