Searcy Summer Dinner Theatre

Searcy Summer Dinner Theatre is a summer community-based theatre program presented by the Department of Theatre at Harding University. Over the past thirty-six years, the program has offered the opportunity for community participation and student experience in a unique hybrid environment. Theatre faculty and staff provide leadership and support for the three productions mounted each summer. Buffet meals are catered by Classic Fare catering. The popular summer program continues to sell out each season.


Tickets can be purchased at:  www.hardingtickets.com
