Looking for something special to do with your Valentine this year? Make plans to attend Encore’s Dessert Theatre production of Date.Com written by Gene Embry, directed by Kurt Grabenstein and starring Renee Lierow and Michael Rex.
When their respective friends set them up with Internet dating accounts, neither Frank nor Martha are happy with the matchmaking efforts, but at the urging of Larry and Phyllis, they login to the site and ‘meet’ each other. The relationship starts with Frank and Martha portraying their make-believe personas, and through their fantasies, they discover that they are each attracted to the ‘real’ Martha and Frank.
Called a 21st century ‘love story,’ you will get so caught up in Frank and Martha’s evolving Internet relationship, you won’t want the show to end.
Date.Com runs Friday, February 13, and Saturday, February 14, at 7:30 pm; and Sunday, February 15, at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $20 each and include special desserts at intermission (BYOB). Call for group rates.
KiSs season ticket holders will be admitted free with an advance reservation. Call 615-598-8950 or visit online at www.encore-theatre-company.org
Encore Theatre is located at 6978 Lebanon Rd. Mt Juliet just west of Hwy 109.
