Central District Winter Social – New Theatre Restaurant Friday, December 11th

This year the Central District’s Annual Winter Social will be at the New Theatre Restaurant on Friday, December 11th.  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 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 (Regency Room).  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/murder mystery called, “Out of Order” by Ray Cooney.  It stars Gary Sandy who is best known as his role of station manager, Andy Travis, in the sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati.  In this hit play, a dead body is found on the balcony at the Watergate Hotel by a less than ethical US Senator who has booked the room for nefarious purposes.  If the body is discovered, the Senator’s career will tank, so he has his assistant remove it only to find that it keeps reappearing every time.  This crazy shell game involves a conniving waiter, an alert private detective, a suspicious hotel manager, an angry wife, a furious husband, a bungling secretary and an unconscious nurse, creating one of the cleverest and funniest hide-and-seek farces ever written.

We have purchased 58 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 11th.

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 Carol Lashley at (913) 682-2291, or email her at
