Searcy Summer Dinner Theatre 2024 Season to be Announced!

You can't take it with you

June 15-18, 22-24 & 29-July 1

The story centers on a conflict between two families with drastically different outlooks on life, the Sycamores and the Kirbys. Their fates become entwined when the oldest Kirby son falls in love with the Sycamore daughter. The play ultimately shows audiences the importance of living to the fullest and remembering what is actually important in life.

The show will be directed by Kylie Jones, and will be performed at the Harding University Ulrey Performing Arts Center.

The Marvelous Wonderettes

July 20-23, 27-29 & Aug. 3-5

This smash Off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ’50s hits including “Mr. Sandman,” “Dream Lover” and “Stupid Cupid.” In Act II, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together.

The show will be directed by Ben and Ellen Jones, and will be performed at the Harding University Ulrey Performing Arts Center.

Each show begins with a buffet dinner provided by Chartwells Catering. Season tickets are available for $70 and go on sale May 15. Individual tickets are $40 and are available after May 22. A limited number of show-only seats will also be available each evening for $20. Tickets can be purchased online at hardingtickets.com, or by phone 501-279-5777.
