Frank’s Dinner Theatre Returns, Lampoons Indecisive Quarterback

Remember Frank's Dinner Theatre from years ago? It was the place to be for an all-in-one evening of food, fun and entertainment. It's coming back this year! In honor of Let Me Be Frank Productions' 20th season, we're giving a nod to our past by bringing back dinner and a show. Join us at the beautiful Backstage at the Meyer where you can sit back, relax and be served a night to remember with dinner and a show.

Diamonds and Gold and Baumeister Sodas present, “Brent the Musical" at the Backstage at the Meyer, November 14-17, 2019. This show premiered at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts in 2010 and also played in La Crosse, Eau Claire and our home stage, the Meyer Theatre in 2011. In addition to writing the show, Frank Hermans also wrote five original songs for the production.

Have you ever had to make up your mind? Meet Brett … err, we meant Brent. He's been playing bar league softball on The Bar's team for years and can't decide if it's time to turn in his jersey or keep playing for another season. Teammates Chunky, Frankie and girlfriend Amy Green know that with talent like his, it would be crazy to give up the game. However, he is getting older and he's not sure how long he can carry the team his on back. And gasp! Rumors are flying he might join another team in the league. Lisa Purple from Stadium View might be negotiating a trade deal. Would he really turn in his jersey and wear the colors of the enemy? You'll have to see for yourself.

Cast all original performers of the production: Frank Hermans as Brent, Pat Hibbard as Chunky, Paul Evansen as Frankie Bag-A-Long-Johns, Amy Riemer as Amy Green and Lisa Borley as Lisa Purple. Band includes Dennis Panneck on guitars, Adam Cain on drums, Tony Pilz on keyboards and original Brent the Musical bassist, Eric Snyder from the Cougars.

Doors open at 5 p.m., dinner is served at 6 p.m. and show starts at 7 p.m.
