RUMFORD – The Rumford Association for the Advancement of the Performing Arts will presents its annual Dinner Theater at Park Place the weekend of June 24.

The performances June 24-26 will feature a buffet dinner, three short plays and a presentation by the RAAPA chorus.

“Mr. Snoop Is Murdered” is a combination of comedy and mystery featuring Rebecca Boudreau, Wayne Landry, Chad Moeun, Duane Glover, Kelli Olson, Patrick Hurley and Connie Venskus. The story centers around a radio personality, his bodyguard, secretary, and announcer.

“The Committee Meeting” features Anita Murphy, Nancy Demilner, Mary Hickey, Rita Cunningham and Martha Hanington.

The ladies are trying very hard to select chairpersons for their church meeting while managing to do no work themselves.

The RAAPA Chorus will perform “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” Music! Music! Music!,” “Embraceable You,” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You,” among others. Judith Kuhn is directing the chorus and is also serving as the accompanist.

In “A Little Something for Christmas,” starring Gail Parent, Jim Robertson and Al Hanington, Ethel and Albert are led to believe that their friends are bringing them a present so they scurry around to find something for the couple only to find out that they are the only ones giving a present.

A cash bar and complimentary hors d’oeuvre will be available. The buffet will feature rib-eye roast beef, chicken cordon bleu, lasagna, sweet and sour meatballs, raw vegetables and dip, mashed potatoes, bread and butter, and eclair delight. Doors open at 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, June 24 and 25; and at noon on Sunday, June 26. Tickets are $27.50.

Seating is limited so reservations should be made as soon as possible by phoning Naomi Robertson at 369-9422. Groups of 8 can be assured of sitting at the same table.
