KCP prepares for dinner theater

Tickets are still available for Kimball Community Playhouse's presentation of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None," and can be purchased by contacting Robin Dockery at (320) 398-7800. Bring a group of friends, or a trio of couples, and purchase a table of six for the best deal at $140. Tickets can also be purchased at $50 for a pair or $30 for a single ticket and must be purchased in advance for the dinner theater and silent auction event. At submission deadline on Monday, there were approximately 10 tables still available. Every year, KCP donates money earned in concessions sales during their winter and summer productions to provide a Dollars for Scholars scholarship to a student who has been active in the arts in Kimball. DFS is a local organization that awards scholarships to Kimball graduates pursuing post-secondary educations and, in this tight economy, has felt the bite in donations, as have many non-profit organizations. This year, KCP's Silent Auction will help benefit Kimball's Dollars for Scholars and your silent auction purchases will assist Dollars for Scholars in continuing to provide this much-needed boost to Kimball graduates. Traditionally, dinner is served by the Kimball Speech team, who enjoy giving back to the community in this way, and many of whom benefit by both KCP and Dollars for Scholars. Also, look for pre-show entertainment to be provided by Cherie Ploof's excellent piano dinner music, presentations by Kimball's talented musicians as they prepare for their upcoming Solo/Ensemble contest, and recitations by Kimball Speech Team, including Jenifer Gilpatrick, who will present her multiple medal-winning "The Anti-Valentine's Handbook."
