MIHS Dinner Theatre returns
Take a break from the dreary, gray days of winter and sail away to Jamaica with the Mercer Island High School production of “Wild Oats of the Caribbean.”
Mercer Island Dreamstate Productions brings to life a dinner theatre adaptation of John O’Keefe’s 18th century farce, “Wild Oats.” A three-course dinner is served up by the actors. Best of all, you are right in the middle of the action during an era when pirates roamed the Caribbean.
Each performance targets a specific audience group. There are student nights, school staff nights, and nights for the general public.
General public: Jan. 31, Feb. 4, Feb. 7.
Students only: Jan. 30, Feb. 5.
School staff only: Jan. 29, Feb. 6.
Tickets: $25, student and staff nights; $35, general public.
