Dinner theater to raise money for mission

Those looking for something to do next weekend will have two opportunities to see a “Whose Line is it Anyway?” type play.

Local residents Brady Walker and Erica Ziglar are at it once again, putting their creativity into a production all while working to raise money for charity.

Two years ago, the duo teamed up to benefit , and raised approximately $1,500 for her.

“Brady and I have always had a love for theater,” Ziglar said. “Last summer, I got to go on a mission trip with First Baptist Church Andalusia to Oscoda, Mich.”

While there, Ziglar said she fell in love with the children there.

“Michigan is totally different from here,” she said. “This is the Bible Belt.”

Ziglar said Walker had an idea to do another theater production and she thought it would be a good idea to let Oscoda be the beneficiary of the event.

The procceds from the production will go to help missions in Oscoda.

Ziglar said Jason and Tracy Livvix and Covington County native Lindsey Moore, who moved to Michigan after attending the same mission trip.

Ziglar said they have recently started a church called Fresh Start Fellowship of Oscoda.

The play will be Sat., June 28, at 2 p.m. and at 7 p.m.

Ziglar said the play will be a “Whose Line is it Anyway” style play in which the audience will get to dictate how the play goes.

The 2 p.m. show is $5.

Those who attend the 7 p.m. show will be served a meal of parmesan crusted chicken, rice, green beans, roll and dessert.

Ziglar requested that those planning to attend the dinner-theater call and reserve their space.

For a table of eight, cost is $100; adults and children over 10 will cost $20; ages 4-9 will cost $3, children 3 and under are free.
