This year the Central District’s Annual Winter Social will be at the New Theatre Restaurant on Friday, December 2nd. The New Theatre Restaurant is located at 9229 Foster Street (just off of Metcalf at 95th) in Overland Park, KS. You may access their website at www.newtheatre.com for a map or further directions. They can be reached by phone, toll free at 866-333-7469.
The Allied Trades have once again agreed to sponsor a social hour which will begin at 5:30 in the Lounge. At 6:30 we will be seated in the Theatre for a delicious dinner, and the opening curtain for the play will be at 7:40. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with Milling Industry colleagues and catch up with old friends, it’s sure to be an enjoyable evening.
The play we are going to see is a comedy called, “The Fabulous Lipitones”. It stars George Wendt who is best known as his role of Norm Peterson in the television sitcom “Cheers”. What happens when a barbershop quartet loses a key member to a heart-stopping high B-flat? The 3 surviving members are scrambling to find a tenor before a national competition. When they hear golden tones being sung over the phone at an auto body shop, the three Lipitones are sure they have their 4th… but when they meet him in person, he’s not quite what they expected. An uproarious comedy with pitch perfect harmonies.
We have purchased 54 tickets for this event and would greatly appreciate your advance registration. We may be able to get additional tickets once they are gone, but seating is not guaranteed. Please use the enclosed form to let us know if you and a spouse/guest will be attending. Don’t miss this fun evening register today! Registration should be made no later than November 2nd.
If you need a hotel room there are several in the area: Embassy Suites, Marriott Overland Park and Sheraton Overland Park just to name a few. We have not blocked any rooms at these hotels, and you will need to contact them directly to make reservations. Please make plans to join us at the New Theatre Restaurant. Questions? Please contact Mike Branson at (913) 522-6996, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
