The New York Daily News comments that “'The Dining Room' serves a banquet of theatrical riches” and features eight performers who portray a wide array of diverse characters as they delineate the dying lifestyle of wealthy WASPdom and the now neglected room which was once a vital center of family life. Directed by Chris Bizub, the play features Tim Peebles, Casey McCann, Patrick Gladish, Andrew Keller, Margaret Hnat, Brittney Shrake, Jackie Scheuffler and April Needham.

"The Dining Room" will be performed at St. Barnabas’ Parish Hall for five performances: Sept. 22, 23, 29 and 30 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 1, at 3 p.m. Ticketing will be announced in September.
For more information about volunteering or making a donation, contact John Hnat, board president, at 440-847-8494.
