About 250 senior citizens turned out Thursday night to enjoy “Dinner and a Show” at Penn Manor High School.
The free program is open to Comet Classic cardholders and guests, who enjoyed a chicken pot pie dinner while members of the Penn Manor High School band played in the cafeteria. The guests were served by members of the school’s National Honor Society.
After dinner, the seniors were treated to a preview performance of the fall play, “And Then There Were None” in the auditorium. The Agatha Christie murder mystery involves 10 strangers who have been summoned to a remote island. All have a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate, for each has been marked for murder, in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.
After Thursday’s performance, the senior citizens got to meet with the show’s cast and crew.
Public performances are tonight, Nov. 17, and Saturday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $6 for students and senior citizens and $8 for adults and can be ordered by calling 872-9520, ext. 1958, or online at this link.
The Comet Classic program is open to any Penn Manor resident age 60 or older. In addition to the annual dinner and show, members receive free admission to Penn Manor athletic events. To find out more, please click here.
