Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts is thrilled to announce it will once again partner with Indian Trail Parks and Recreation to present an exciting evening of dining and entertainment with an all-new dinner theatre production, THE ANNIVERSARY!  This moving story about timeless love is an original musical theatre piece featuring beloved classics such as Cheek to Cheek, Young at Heart, Love & Marriage, I'm Gonna Live Till I Die.  ​​Performances will take place May 10-11, 2024 at the VFW James Crump Post 2423 in Indian Trail, NC. 

Matthews Playhouse Executive Director, Sarah Baumgardner says she has received numerous requests for another dinner theatre production after the success of the A WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY, a murder-mystery dinner theatre experience produced in early 2023. "Audiences will laugh, cry and sing along as they enjoy performances by some of Charlotte's favorite musical theatre actors,” says Baumgardner. This collaboration with Indian Trail signifies our commitment to bringing innovative and engaging entertainment to our community." 

THE ANNIVERSARY is written by Scott Albert and performed with musical arrangements by John Nipe and choreographed by Vanessa Davis. It features  live musicians along with actors Kevin Roberge, Karen Christensen, Peter Liuzzo, Ally Teeples and Joe Burnette.
