Theme for 70’s dinner theater is full of soul

With everything from pet rocks to Seventies music, this year’s dinner theatre looks to be an interesting performance.

The multicultural department is holding their 14th annual dinner theatre in the Student Union Ballroom this Friday and Saturday. The theme is “70’s Soul Part Two”. The show is a continuation of the theme the department did last year.

Bianca Hutchinson, a University student and assistant coordinator of the show, has great expectations for this year’s performance.

“We started working on costumes and everything since before Christmas break,” she said. “We have been practicing two to three times a week.”

The dinner theatre includes a meal before the show and then a night filled with acting and music. The shows include “Good Times”, “All in the Family” and “Sanford and Son”.

“This is going to be a great show” Hutchinson said.

Joy Hartwell-Lein, who is playing Edith Bunker expressed her enthusiasm for the performance as well.

“Dinner theatre rocks” she said, with a very excited tone.

Hutchinson urges everyone to come and she is sure that it will be worth while.

Hutchinson also spoke on behalf of Sheila Brown, who is the Head Coordinator of the event.

“Lots of parents are going to be at the show as well,” she said. “This gives the parents a chance to see their son or daughter doing something positive and taking an active role here.”

The dinner theatre is not only for students Hutchinson said.

“All the shows that are going to be presented are consisted of students, faculty and staff,” Hutchinson said.

Tickets are still available for the show if interested call the Multicultural Center and Office of Academic Initiatives.

Tickets are $12 for Friday’s performance which includes hors-d’oeuvres and $22 for Saturday’s show which includes a dinner buffet.

“One man asked me if the show was going to be any good and I told him that is he was not satisfied that he could come to the office and let me know,” Hutchinson said. “I can guarantee he won’t be back.”
