DINNER AND A SHOW - FRIDAY @ 5:30pm

"Leepin' Lizards!" FHU Theatre and the FHU Associates have joined together to create a special evening of food and entertainment. Enjoy a NYC-themed steak dinner before you see the high-energy performance of the blockbuster musical Annie. The Associates, working with local favorite David Jackson, will prepare a New York Strip dinner with all the fixings. There's even NYC cheesecake for dessert!

Tickets for “Dinner and a Show” are $35 general admission. Discounted tickets are available for FHU students, staff, and faculty. FHU Theatre patrons pay only for the meal. Contact Beth Sanford at 731-989-6632 with questions

Dinner starts promptly at 5:30pm and service will conclude at 6:30pm. This will give you plenty of time to exit the Brown-Kopel Lobby for Loyd Auditorium and our performance.

All proceeds for the dinner benefit student scholarships. Thank you FHU Associates for making this special event possible!
