Upcoming Dinner Theatre Production “The Lucky Seven” Benefits Red Cross
The one night only performance “The Lucky Seven” is being presented by the First United Methodist Church of Claremore, on Friday, September 28. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.. Tickets are $25, which includes the dinner and show.
The setting for “The Lucky Seven”, the latest play from local playwright Mark Ogle, is Neosho Falls High School, home of the Bulldogs, in the small unassuming Midwestern town of Neosho Falls. It follows the lives of the seven members of the 1960 graduating class from graduation day through the next 50 years. The class of 1960 holds many distinctions, the first class to graduate from the new high school building, as well as being the smallest class ever to graduate. Class members are known as “The Lucky Seven”, not simply because of their number, but for the reason for it.
Directing the production will be veteran community theatre director Dan Huey. The audience will recognize cast members from past productions, as well as some new faces.
Reservations are required and can be made by calling the church at (918) 341-4580. The First United Methodist Church of Claremore is located at 1615 N. Highway 88 in Claremore. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross to assist those who experience a disaster, like a home fire.
The First United Methodist Church of Claremore is a longtime supporter of the American Red Cross, not only holding this event for the last four years, but as a Red Cross designated shelter in case of a disaster.
