Ursinus College and the Collegeville Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) have teamed up to present “Dinner and a Show” to area residents, offering dinner specials to those attending the Ursinus Theater Department’s slapstick British Comedy "Noises Off” from Feb. 20 to Feb. 23.
“It’s a fun night out for Collegeville area residents without the hassle of Center City traffic,” said the CEDC, which runs the Collegeville Main Street program.
“Noises Off”, which has been called “the funniest farce ever written,” tells the story of a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing for a flop called “Nothing On.”
Tickets for the show are $5 each, $2 for students and senior citizens over 65. Individuals who order tickets online will be given a receipt that they should show to the restaurant owners.
Participating restaurants include Marzella’s Pizza, Lou’s Too, WIBS Wings Ribs & More and Phamous Phil’s BBQ, all of which are BYOB and offer 10 percent off to participants.
The Trappe Tavern and Da Vinci’s Pub have full bars, and offer 10 percent off for participants. The Pizza Stop offers the same, but customers must bring their own wine – beer is on the menu.
My Friends Tavern will offer a surprise special side to customers. Thai Basil Bistro and Bonjung Japanese Restaurant – both BYOB – will offer a free appetizer.
