Showboat Dinner Theatre

A Showboat on the French Riviera
FUMC Annual Music Ministry Dinner Show Fundraiser

Saturday, May 5, 2018
In the Social Hall at 6:00 p.m.

This is the second of two music ministry fundraisers planned by our Music and Liturgical Arts team during the 2017-2018 season.

Unlike our fall Cabaret, this event is an actual Dinner-Show! Under the culinary skills of James Beard Award-Winning Chef Alex Young, a sumptuous meal will be prepared and served in our charmingly decorated Social Hall. In celebration of Chef Alex’s newly-opened elegant French restaurant “The Bistro and Larder”, this event will feature exquisite French Cuisine.

Enjoy the show, which takes place as you dine. A musical theme of the “French Riviera” features our FUMC Vocal Staff singing repertoire from “Classic Musicals”, “beloved Operatic” moments and popular French Café tunes. Music includes such favorites as I Love Paris, La Vie en Rose, as well as selections from Gigi, Candide, Carmen, La Boheme and An American in Paris! Our Chancel Choir will join our soli for a rousing finale at the end of this rich dining experience.

Reservations may be made at Connections time between downtown worship services or by calling our church office at 734-662-4536.

This important event is key to sustaining our vibrant music ministries. Your involvement enables us to provide the needed supplement to sustain our vocal staff and fund larger music offerings on Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday, and special music Sundays where full orchestra is featured on major choral sacred works.
