Remember Frank’s Dinner Theatre from years ago? It was the place to be for an all-in-one evening of food, fun and entertainment. It was a hit in 2019, so it’s back again in 2020! Join us at the beautiful Backstage at the Meyer where you can sit back, relax and be served a night to remember with dinner and a show.
Diamonds and Gold present “Girls on Thin Ice” at the Backstage at the Meyer, March 12-15, 2020.
It’s the 1980s and we have big hair, big personalities, and ever bigger secrets. Our show takes us to the 1988-1989 auditions for the esteemed performing troupe, The Swinging Knights, at St. Norbert College. Seniors Amy, Lisa, and Kelly are ready to see what potential new members can bring to the table, err…we mean stage. Since there obviously can only be four girls in their “Fab 4” crew, there’s really one slot to fill in the group. Kasey, a senior who has never auditioned before, ends up landing the coveted role with her stellar audition. Sarah, a super-talented freshman, took her audition as an opportunity to prove she’s got what it takes to hang with the seniors, and is cast as an alternate for the troupe.
Throughout the year, Sarah has to step in for performances and save the day when Kelly gets sick, Lisa participates in a few extracurricular activities, and Amy gets a little boy crazy.
Flashforward to the final performance of the year and Kasey is nowhere to be found. Is she ok? Is she ever coming back? Can Sarah take over Kasey’s part in the show or is it doomed to be a flop? What does Kasey’s unexplained absence mean for the friendship of the Fab 4? You’ll have to see for yourself in this hilarious new musical-comedy.
“Girls on Ice” runs March 12th—15th at the Backstage at the Meyer. Doors open at 5 p.m., dinner is served at 6 p.m. and the performance begins at 7 p.m. Dinner & show is $55 per person, and show-only tickets are $30.
