The Curtain Call Players offer “An Old Fashioned Christmas” dinner show


CROSSVILLE — The Curtain Call Players send out heartfelt thanks to those who made the “Malt Shop Music and Memories” production another sold out success. Once people found out about the new dinner theatre, the response was overwhelming, selling out the last week. For those of you who were unable to get tickets, watch for our summer Malt Shop. Keep up with us and like us on Facebook at Curtain Call Dinner Theatre Crossville.

The December holiday production will be a magical night of song and comedy not to be missed. It will be in the form of the old Perry Como, Bing Crosby TV shows with the addition of a full home-styled catered meal prepared by Dixie’s Catering. The meal will be a Christmas salad, honey glazed ham, potato salad, Boston baked beans, rolls, Dixie’s choice dessert, all the coffee, tea and lemonade you can drink and free popcorn during the show. The caterer will accommodate special diets if contacted in advance. You may call the Curtain Call (931-337-7469) for her phone number.

The dates for this show are Thursday, Dec. 19 and Friday, Dec. 20. The Curtain Call Dinner Theatre is conveniently located in the Crossville Outlet Center (VF Outlet), 22 Interstate Blvd. Entrance A, Suite 129 (first doors on your left as you enter the outlet). The price of the show including dinner and tax is $28.

“An Old Fashioned Christmas” brings together many of the Curtain Call Players; Dennis Donald, Cheyenne Graff, Pat Kelly, Ashley Krohn, Rusty McClanahan, Viviana and Arvie Pabi, as well as Carol Skiles. These are some of Cumberland County's best entertainers. During the dinner hour, there will be live dinner music for your listening pleasure. We have a number of musicians that rotate, such as saxophonist Frank Saxton or guitarist Tony Zarola –two of the area’s best.

This will be an intimate setting that you won’t want to miss; a rare opportunity to experience limited seating, and up-close and personal performances. The music will be your favorite songs and beloved holiday music of the past and present, ad-lib comedy and, most importantly, we will end with music that tells of the real reason for the season, such as Do You Hear What I Hear, O Holy Night, Mary Did You Know, Joseph’s Song and What Child Is This?

The cost is $28, which includes the dinner, show and taxes. Reservations can be made by calling 931-337-7469 and can be paid with Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. You may also stop by the Outlet Mall to purchase tickets or pick up tickets you reserved and look for all the bargains in the Mall. We also have Gift Certificates for sale that make very nice enjoyable Christmas gifts. Give the gift of music and laughter … and food, too!
