    L‘Til Beth Do Us Part - Wednesday, April 24 

    DayTrippers Dinner Theatre is at it again…in one of my favorite venues, the Plymouth Playhouse! Get ready to laugh! After an included pulled pork with Jim Beam barbecue sauce, baked beans with bacon, potato buns, creamy cole slaw, pickles, buttered sweet corn, house made kettle chips, chocolate chunk brownies, coffee and iced tea lunch, it’s time for ‘Til Beth Do Us Part from the creators of “The Dixie Swim Club” and “Always a Bridesmaid”. This side-splitting romp about marriage and career introduces us to the Haydens - Suzannnah and her husband Gibby, a local TV weatherman. They are a couple who both work and decide an assistant is needed to help put the house in order. So they hire a highly motivated, gregarious Southerner named Beth. Little do they know, Beth is after Suzanne’s job. Throw in a couple of wise-cracking best friends and a British boss lady, and you discover that the hazards of hiring a personal assistant can be hilarious. (There is a vegetarian option available - fettuccine alfredo - but you MUST request this option when you register.) Registration Deadline: Wednesday, April 10 (may fill prior)

    The Kingston Trio Thursday, June 13, 2024

    We’ll begin with an included buffet lunch at the Coyote Moon Grille and then head for the St. Cloud Paramount Theatre for The Kingston Trio! In 1957, The Kingston Trio emerged from San Francisco’s North Beach club scene to take the country by storm, bringing the rich tradition of American folk music into the mainstream for the first time. During the late 50s & early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation. Through changing times, the Trio has played on, remaining popular for a simple reason… great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them. Over forty years after the song “Tom Dooley” shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road 30 weeks out of the year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.
