Downtown Dinner & Theatre July 14


By Steve Twilley

Enjoy delicious dining and hilarious live theatre entertainment on Saturday, July 14 when Second Street Players’ presents an evening of Dinner&Theatre. The special combination package features a buffet dinner at downtown Milford’s Georgia House, followed by Second Street Players’ summer comedy, Run For Your Wife.

Everything gets underway at 6 pm in Georgia House’s private upstairs dining room, located at 18 S. Walnut Street in Milford. The dinner buffet will feature seafood specialties, homemade creations, delectable side dishes, and plenty of southern-style hospitality. A cash bar is available beginning at 6 o’clock with dinner served at 6:30. Make sure to save room for some of Georgia House’s delectable desserts.

After dinner take the short stroll over to Riverfront Theatre for Run For Your Wife, a fast-paced comedy romp directed by Tommye Staley. The play begins promptly at 8 pm and features unassuming cab driver John Smith who has two wives in two homes in two towns…and a very precise schedule for juggling it all. Lie is piled upon lie, laugh is piled upon laugh in this hilariously sexy and ridiculously physical farce.

Denis Stanton from Dover plays the slightly befuddled cabbie and Jerry Cox is his unemployed upstairs neighbor, Stanley. John’s two wives, Mary and Barbara, are played by Kristen Boehmer and Maria Fry. Rounding out the cast are Robbie Butler, Peter Appel, Steven Haber, and Cordel Batsun.
