‘Dinner and a Show’ draws nearly 400 to HS

About 400 Penn Manor senior citizens enjoyed a tasty meal of chicken pot pie and a rousing performance of the fall play, “The Foreigner,” at Thursday night’s “Dinner and a Show.”

The turnout was the biggest in the history of the free event, which is held each fall for district senior citizens in the high school cafeteria and auditorium.

More than 25 high school students helped to seat, serve and assist the attendees, who enjoyed performances by the Manor Singers and High School Ensemble while they dined. A special guest, Howard Miller, celebrated his 100th birthday with his wife, Erma, and other family and friends at the dinner.

The meal was followed by a showing of the “The Foreigner” to rave reviews.

“Dinner and a Show” is an annual event for Comet Classic Cardholders to thank them for their support of Penn Manor schools and students. The program is open to all district residents age 60 or older.
