Press Release

For immediate release

Once again The Way and Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre will partner to present a mystery dinner theatre experience at The Way. Performances are set for March 22, 23, and 24 at 6:00 each evening.  This production is a fund-raising event for The Way, an interdenominational, Christian-based youth center, which was established in 2011. After moving into their permanent new building a year ago, The Way has seen attendance dramatically increase to over four hundred young people each week. Each day, devotionals are led by ministers, laypeople, and students at The Way. Free snacks and sometimes meals are provided by local churches, organizations, and individuals. Ongoing activities at The Way include table games (pool, ping pong, air hockey, etc.), basketball, skateboarding, and a weekly Taekwondo class. Students can also participate in sewing classes, cooking classes, music lessons, crafts, and use of computers. The Way also has special programs on prevention of drug abuse, teen relationships, beginning steps for new Christians, and recently a Mother/Daughter Self Defense seminar. Throughout the year, The Way also makes the building available for special programs and events such as Upward Basketball and The Sheriff’s Christmas Bicycle Give-Away.

“A number of people who attended last year’s mystery dinner theatre asked for another production,” said director Portia Aldridge. “We had so much fun, and it was such a successful fund-raiser for The Way that we decided to bring it back again.” This year’s play, Dinner at Eight, Dead by Nine, will follow a spaghetti dinner catered by Hancock’s Neighborhood Market. The cast includes Denny Lacy, Jon Prudhomme, Ken Traub, Lisa Futrell, Joseph Brand, Rebecca Steip, Erika Steip, David Hazelmyer, Martha Davis, Carl Heckmann, and Leisa Hart. Bryan Blaylock is in charge of tech. Servers for the evening will include volunteers and board members of The Way and some cast members.

Tickets for each performance are $25.00 and are limited to 90 tickets for each night. Tickets can be purchased at The Way, 197 Lafayette Street from February 20 through March 16. No tickets will be sold after March 16. Hours of operation at The Way are 3:00-6:00 Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday and 3:00-9:00 Friday. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward reducing the remaining debt on the new building. For additional information contact Portia Aldridge at 270-522- 6009.
