The Cocktail Hour! The Show I Directed This Fall!

The Cocktail Hour; written by A.R. Gurney
Sept. 18th- Oct.31st
The time is the early 1970’s, the ritual is the cocktail hour and the prodigal son has returned home to get his family’s approval about a play that he has written about them. Since it does not necessarily paint his proper family (and specifically his father) in a favorable light, they are cautious. As the martinis flow and the night drags on so do the recriminations and revelations both funny and poignant. Gurney, who penned Sylvia, has once again proven that the strength of love and family conquers all and we mustn’t take ourselves too seriously.

Dinner and the theatre are Friday and Saturday evenings beginning at 7:00pm for dinner and 8:00pm for the show. Sunday afternoon matinees are 1:00pm for lunch and 2:00pm for the show. They serve a scrumptious tri tip barbeque for both dinner and lunch that includes; tri tip or chicken, chili beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with red roasted tomatoes, green salad with choice of dressing and dessert. The guest lodge offers a full bar for drink purchases. Lemonade, tea and coffee are served with the meal.

General admission tickets are $45.00 per person for dinner and the theater. Senior rates of $37.00 are available for Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Season tickets and group rates are available.
