After giving the "dinner with your show" concept a trial run last February (with its production of "Knotareel Getaway Cruise"), Mounds Theatre has decided to go whole hog.
It's planned a full season of dinner shows for 2011, beginning Saturday, January 15 with "The Bait Shop Trilogy, Part One" written by the Mounds' own composer and playwright Greg Eiden. The season continues with a reprise of "Knotareel Getaway Cruise" followed by "The Bait Shop Trilogy" parts two and three.
In a press release the theater promised "a delicious catered buffet, dessert, beverages and a full bar as well as the unique opportunity to interact with the cast prior to the show."
My only concern: will the fishermen in "The Bait Shop Trilogy" be talking about worms? While I'm eating?
