Valentine's Day Suggestion - "Bitsy, Boots... and Ida"

Hey, if you're like me, you're always looking for good ideas for Valentine's Day - and here's one now!

Coming up later this month, the First Church Dinner Theater at the First United Methodist Church at 1124 5th Avenue in Huntington will proudly present the World Premiere of Jonathan Joy’s newest play, Bitsy, Boots... and Ida.

The show runs Friday, Feb. 13 and Saturday, Feb. 14 - and best of all, in addition to a great show, you also get a terrific dinner (and you're getting this as a personal testimonial from your pal Chuck, who certainly knows a thing or two about good food). Dinner is served at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 8:00 p.m.

You have a choice of entrees: Prime Rib au Jus or Glazed Cornish hen, with Tossed Salad, Baked Potato, Green Peas and Pearl Onions, Dilly Rolls and Assorted Valentine Desserts.

The cost of the dinner plus the show is: Adult - $22.00; Child under 12 - $8.00; or you can see the show only (as space permits) - $5.00.

Babysitting is available on request for all shows (advance notice required).

Reservations are required for all shows. Call: 304-522-0357 or 740-867-8576.

Best of all, the money goes to a great cause! All profits benefit the Mission and Youth of First United Methodist.

So call now! See a great show, enjoy a fine dinner, and help a good cause. What more could you ask for?

Highly recommended!
