Cove High Dawghouse Theater hosts dinner and show
Special to Leader-Press
it has always been clear that a dinner party is about what is said, not what is eaten. The upcoming production of Lottie and Dotty’s Out of This World Dinner Party is no exception.
The Copperas Cove Dawghouse Theater is hosting a public dinner party where the futuristic servers are members of the acting troupe presenting a play set nearly 30,000 years into the future.
Lottie and Dotty’s Out of This World Dinner Party is a senior hosted event that showcases singing, dancing, monologues, and a variety of scenes that will have the audience holding their sides, hurting from laughter. In the play, Scotty has left and is not coming back while Dotty is left struggling to pick up the pieces in the year 30549. She enlists the help of Scotty’s sister, Lottie, and they work feverishly to save their night club.
Copperas Cove High School senior Dylon Nelson plays various lead roles in the production and is looking forward to the audience’s participation.
“I love dinner theater because it very interactive and allows the audience to be a part of the experience,” Nelson said. “I also love being able to see all of the various talents that people have.”
Because the show does offer such a myriad of theatrical talents, senior Cody Clark decided to audition for the production.
“Typically I’m not an actor. I stay backstage and do tech, but dinner theater really gave me the chance to step out and try something new for a change,” Clark said. “So far, I have loved and enjoyed this entire experience.”
The production is offered both Friday and Saturday evenings, Dec. 6 and 7. Dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. followed by the start of the show at 7:30 p.m. at Lea Ledger Auditorium, 400 S. 25th Street, Copperas Cove. Admission is $10 that includes both dinner and the theater production.
