The Corry Area Arts Council will present a dinner theater event by Enchante’ Cabaret on Sunday, Jan. 17 at St. Elizabeth Parish Center.

Enchante’ Cabaret, a professional dinner theater company, will perform “Journey’s.” The story follows the Queen of Hearts and Cupid as they follow the lives of different women and their struggles and triumphs with love.

Trapped between his job and heart, Cupid will face the choice of a lifetime. Will he share his love with a mortal or continue shooting people with arrows? 

The performance will go off script for audience impromptu scenes and sketches.

The comedy and romance will feature love songs such as “Unforgettable,” “To Where You Are,” “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” and “The Rose.”

A social time will begin at 12:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 1 p.m. Reservations must be made by Jan. 13 by calling Jim Mehs at 664-3626. Cost is $11 for patrons and $21 for nonpatrons.

Rula Backos will play the role of the Queen of Hearts and Todd Wagner will play the role of Cupid.
