"Captive" Drama

Signed for the deaf/hard of hearing

This year's Dinner Theatre Experience, CAPTIVE, will be signed for the deaf and hard of hearing on Sunday, November 10th at our 5:30pm performance (Drama Only). Join us for a night out of comedic, inspiring entertainment. It's the story of friends gathered for a casual movie night turned thriller when one is taken captive by a mysterious stranger. Join the hunt and enter a world of adventure, comedy and suspense where the movies we love become a seemingly inescapable reality.
Speacial seating can be purchased at the Box office at the church, Monday through Friday from 8:30am-5:30pm for the reserved area closest to the interpreter. Tickets are only $2 each for that area.
Tickets will also be sold 30minutes before the show on Sunday, if not sold out.
