Downtown Monroe City was filled with cars on the evenings of November 16 and 17. Community members gathered together to enjoy a sold-out dinner theatre show hosted by The Fabulous Feet Dance Company and The Apron Café.
Guests were taken on a musical and dance performance back in time in a 1950’s style café with the performers serving dinner as the waitresses who were dressed in fashion to resemble the era.
The packed house enjoyed live music with scenes from Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, the Blues Brothers and even included “How much is that doggie in the window?” with The Apron Café owner, Debbie Hall’s little doggie named Buffy.
Tickets were sold prior to the event where customers choose between two different meal choices. As they arrived, tables were set with name cards for assigned seating. After dinner, the show started with the event lasting approximately three hours.
Rhonda Woods McHargue, owner and teacher of The Fabulous Feet Dance Company stated, “We had a wonderful time. When the show goes up all the hard work is forgotten. It is so worth the work to see people smiling and laughing and being blessed. I felt that each section of the show was well received.” McHargue explained there were many facets to the show and had something for everyone and all ages, she added, “The crowd really responded.”
