GETTYSBURG — The Oakland Church of the Brethren, 8058 Horatio-Harris Creek Road, Bradford, 2 1/2 miles north of Gettysburg, will present “The Cemetery Club” by Ivan Menchell (produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.) as its 2016 Dinner Theater production.
The play centers around three Jewish widows who meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husband’s graves. A romance begins between one of the widows and a widower having met at the cemetery. The other widows nip it in the bud leaving broken hearts, but surprises are in store as the characters evolve in this entertaining play.
Oakland’s annual dinner theater is well known throughout the community. Those who attend are warmly greeted with valet parking, a wide variety of freshly prepared salads, entrees and desserts as well as wholesome entertainment that highlights the talents that exist within the congregation.
Nan Hottle is the director/producer. The cast members are Rosie Fields, Lynne Hanes, Darlene Dillon, John Dillon and Suzy Keller.
The dates will be March 4, 5, 11, and 12 at 6 p.m. Cost of the dinner buffet and play will be $22. On March 6 dessert only will be served at 2 p.m. with the play to follow at 3 p.m., cost of $12. Cost for children 10 and under will be half price.
Reservations may be made from 4-8 p.m. with Brenda Coblentz at 937-548-1895.
