Are You Coming to Dinner?


Get out of hibernation!  Come on over to the First Street Community Center’s Uptown Theatre and enjoy a hilarious comedy put on by the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Theatre.

The stage is set. The actors, producers, directors, stage crew and everyone else is working feverishly to make this challenging production one of the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Theatre’s best.

The Man Who Came to Dinner, is a comedy in three acts by Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman.   Performances start this Thursday, March 5th at 7:30pm. The show has additional performances Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th also at 7:30pm with a Sunday, March 8th 2pm matinee.

Set in the 1930’s in a small Ohio town during the Christmas holiday season. Our wealthy host has invited a more than slightly “full of himself” radio personality Sheridan Whiteside (aka: ‘Sherry’) over for dinner…

This show has it all! There are penguins, an octopus, convicts, an old friend tries to break up a new romance, someone gets stuffed into a mummy case and flown out of town to be a part of an exhibit going on a tour of the world, there’s even blackmail centered around a certain murderer hiding in plain site. All of this, because Sheridan Whiteside came to dinner, fell on the ice and injured his hip.

Moral of this story, be careful who you invite over to dinner.

Tickets are $12 for Adults, $10 for Students and Seniors. Tickets are on sale at CarePro Pharmacy in Mount Vernon and the Lisbon Public Library.

Call (319) 535-2030 to reserve your tickets today!
