It’s a one-act play. What could go wrong?

31 Jan

The Webster Theatre Guild will explore the answer to that question when they present “The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong,” a dinner theater fundraiser scheduled for Friday and Saturday Feb. 10 and 11.

The comedy, written by Henry Shields, Jonathan Sayers and Henry Lewis, follows a fictitious amateur British theatre troupe through the opening night of a murder mystery production where everything that can go wrong does. Nonetheless, the show must go on, despite the hilarious consequences.

The “dinner and a show” will be held on Friday and Saturday, February 10 and 11 at the Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Rd. Both evenings will begin with a sit-down pasta dinner at 6:30 p.m., followed by the show. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased in advance by clicking here.

If you own or work at a local business, how about having a night out for the staff and sponsor an entire table? Your $200 donation will include six tickets and table recognition. Interested businesses should call (585) 678-1158 to make reservations.

Proceeds from the dinner theatre fundraiser will go towards funding scholarships for graduating high school seniors and for supporting the staging of upcoming musical theater productions.

The Webster Theatre Guild could really use our support on this. Thanks to several scheduling conflicts, they weren’t able to produce their regular musical last October, so they’re hoping to recoup some of that lost revenue with this show.

I think I’m going to make it a date night with my husband. How about joining me?
