Drama for Dinner

Second Annual Drama for Dinner Weekend


September 29-30, 2012

A celebration of the wonder of our theatre

Up close and personal



[sc:Col-Clear ]

Do you ever wonder how:


  • Joel Ripka was able to transform so completely into Bill The Swan?
  • Actor Jay Stratton balances his life as a theatre professor and professional actor?

We Chester Theatre-goers may not be the type to hang around the stage door after a performance, but we sure yearn to know the people behind the production, and we sure know how to ask questions.

Here’s our chance:


Drama For Dinner is a special opportunity to meet with CTC artists in an intimate setting — the home of someone who loves theatre as much as you do. Your host is donating the dinner and your $100 ticket directly supports CTC! The dinners will take place on September 29th and 30th, in different locations with different special guests — actors and directors from the 2012 CTC season.
