Singing and dancing will take center stage as the SIUE Friends of Theater and Dance (FOTAD) present Janie Adamson’s For Love or Money: A Cabaret, an evening of great entertainment for FOTAD’s Annual Dinner Theater.
Entering a new era that focuses on SIUE’s talented theater and dance majors, FOTAD has decided to change from its tradition of hosting a mystery dinner theater in the fall. “We felt it was time to showcase the wonderful students who are learning theater and dance skills here in our own backyard,” said Kate Slovinski, FOTAD president. “Our mission is to award scholarship funds to these students, so why not show the world why we love these kids so much.
“I think the patrons who enjoyed the mystery dinner theater events of the past will enjoy this new cabaret style we’re presenting,” Slovinski said.
FOTAD is the support organization for the Department of Theater and Dance. Proceeds from the Nov. 3 event will benefit the organization’s scholarship fund for SIUE theater and dance majors. Reservations must be made by Friday, Nov. 1. The entertaining cabaret will take place in the University Restaurant in the Morris University Center.
Doors open at 6:15; the cabaret starts around 7 p.m. and dinner will be served shortly thereafter.
Tickets are still $40 per person and include a full dinner. For reservation information, or to make a reservation with a credit card, call the SIUE Fine Arts box office, (618) 650-2774, or, from St. Louis toll-free, (888) 328-5168, Ext. 2774.
