After several years hiatus, the East Central Community College Fall Dinner Theater returns to the Decatur campus with the Encore Players presentation of the classic and hilarious stage play If A Man Answers.

Shows are scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, November 10-11. Tickets are $25 per person and can be reserved by calling 601-635-6424 or emailing ksanders@eccc.edu.

Director Gene Cliburn said, “The cast and crew invite our audience to travel back in time to the 1960s and join us at the Stardust Lounge, a Vegas nightclub, for an evening of dining, dancing, and dramady. It's more than just dinner and a show - it's an immersive experience!

Enjoy the ambiance and laugh at the hijinks that come when a French mother tries to help her struggling, newlywed daughter with the secret to a happy marriage: a dog training manual!

Cliburn said the cast has worked hard to perfect the "less than modern dialogue" and has learned a few skills including the use of a rotary dial phone, a pivotal prop in the production.
