The Dinner Party

Emporia State Summer Theatre presents the 2nd
show of their 62nd season with "The Dinner
Party". Written by Neil Simon, this romantic
comedy involves six people invited to dine at a
fine Parisian restaurant, unaware of who the
other guests will be or why they were invited.

Tossed together in a private dining room, Andre
Bouville (Elliott Brest, Tonganoxie), Yvonne
Fouchet (Fran Opheim, Olathe), Gabrielle
Buonocelli (Paige Lundin, Valley Center),
Mariette Levieux (Lisa Tinker, Derby), Claude
Pichon (Mitchell Hoover, Oxford), and Albert
Donay (Logan Wohlford, Valley Center) all have
a sneaking suspicion that this unorthodox
dinner party will forever change their lives.
Frequently hilarious but also dangerously
serious, "The Dinner Party" is an invitation
you'll be glad to accept.

"The Dinner Party" is under the direction of
Bob Hart. Assisting with the production are
technical director Chris Lohkamp, scenographer
Rick Rassmussen, sound designer Andrew
McCutcheon (Gardner), production stage manager
Dustin Bittel (Ellis), and assistant stage
manager Rachel Muirhead (Hays).

"The Dinner Party" runs June 29th —July 2nd at
7:30 pm. All performances will be in the Karl
C. Bruder Theatre located at 1301 Market
Street. For tickets to this performance, visit
the Memorial Union Ticket Office or call 620-
341-6378. For media inquiries and more
information about the show season, contact Jim
