Looking for an evening that will take you back to the “Good Old Days”? For one night only, come to “Doo-Wop and Diners,” Prince William Little Theatre’s celebration of the music and home cooking of the 1950s. It will be held on Saturday, April 27, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., at Bethel Lutheran Church, 8712 Plantation Lane, Manassas, Virginia.
Guests will be treated to a home-cooked meal reminiscent of the great fare our moms and grandmoms used to cook. Top area performers will serenade the attendees with some of our favorite hits from the ’50s. Enjoy an evening of great “down-home” food and songs that will take you back to the decade of Elvis, poodle skirts, Sinatra, Mickey Mantle, bobby socks, Marilyn Monroe, Sputnik….and doo-wop!
Entertainer Annie Ermlick has put together a lineup of more than 20 singers and musicians to keep the evening hoppin’ with tunes like “Wake Up Little Susie,” “Teddy Bear,” and “Mona,” as well as numbers from favorite ‘50s musicals. Meanwhile, chef Dave Warner is busy planning the menu for the evening which includes his special meatloaf recipe.
Tickets, including dinner and show are only $25 per couple, $15 single, $5 for children aged 12 and under. Deadline for dinner reservations is Monday, April 22. Late reservations will have to be content with dessert. (No discount for late reservations.)
Reservations and payment can be made online at www.pwlt.org.
