Potluck Show Dinner Theater at North Bend State Park
CAIRO, W.Va. – Three women with a flair for friendship and a love of food and fun collide at North Bend State Park April 21 in the dinner theater presentation of “The Potluck Show.” The staged performance is a feast of stories, songs and poems.
“Three familiar women of the stage create ‘the Potluck Show’,” said Ken Zebo, activities coordinator at North Bend. The women are: Karen Vuranch, Julie Adams and Colleen Anderson. The evening show is a potluck of lively performances about cookery, life and community spirit cloaked in laughter and song.
The evening begins with dinner buffet at 7 p.m. featuring prime rib, sides, salads and a dessert bar. The show begins at 8 p.m. and lasts about an hour with an opportunity to meet the actresses afterwards. There are two packages: an overnight that includes accommodations, dinner, the show and breakfast buffet for $169 for two people; or $119 for single occupancy. A dinner-and-play-only package is $99.98 per couple or $49.99 for single. Advance reservations are required.
