Searcy Summer Dinner Theatre presents Christmas Belles June 30-July 9

SEARCY, Ark. — The 2011 Searcy Summer Dinner Theatre season will continue at Harding University June 30 with “Christmas Belles.” The Futrelle sisters (Frankie, Honey Raye, and Twink) are back in this comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. This time they are trying to pull off a perfect Christmas program. Things get Southern crazy with squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep, and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. There is no Silent Night in Fayro, Texas!

The show runs June 30, July 1-3, and July 7-9 with a buffet dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and may be ordered at or in person at the box office. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For more information, call 501-279-4580.

The summer series will wrap up later with “Plaid Tidings,” a musical by Stuart Ross with music by James Raitt, Brad Ellis, Raymond Berg, and David Snyder, running July 21-24 and 28-30.

All shows are held in the Ulrey Performing Arts Center on the Harding University campus and begin with a 6:30 p.m. buffet dinner.
