BVCT sets the table for 'The Dining Room'

Bay Village Community Theater is proud to present its second full production, "The Dining Room," written by A.R. Gurney and directed by Chris Bizub, the last two weekends of September at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Parkside Hall, 468 Bradley Road in Bay Village.

The show will open on Friday evening, Sept. 22, and run for five performances: Sept. 22, 23, 29 and 30 (curtain at 8 p.m.) and one Sunday matinee on Oct. 1 at 3 p.m.

The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes – some funny, some touching, some rueful – which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. (Note: Play has adult themes.)

Tickets are $12 for adults; $10 for seniors (60+); and $10 for students (under 18).

You may order your tickets online by going to To pay by credit card, please choose the Paypal option; you will be directed to the checkout page where you can either pay with Paypal or bay credit card. You may also call 440-847-8494 and we will return your call as soon as possible.

BVCT will also continue our “All the World’s a Stage[d Reading]” series with a performance of “Guilty Pleasures” consisting of three short one-acts and appropriate music. There will be two performances of “Guilty Pleasures”: Saturday, Sept. 16, at 2 p.m. at O’Neill Healthcare Bay Village's Main Lounge (605 Bradley Road) and Sunday, Sept. 17, at 6 p.m. at Mojo’s Coffee (600 Dover Center Road). Both performances are open to the general public. Admission is free; donations will be gratefully accepted.
