' Cemetery Club' Dinner Theater Fundraiser for Cancer de Mama

Marion Rogers - Amigos de Jaltemba
December 22, 2018

The Penita Players have presented a variety of dinner theatre shows starting back in 2004. Our audiences have been very enthusiastic and for several years we have sold out and fans keep asking for more.  As we are a small troupe (always looking for more volunteers to train in theatrical arts!) we usually alternate years, but decided to go ahead this year with a play dear to the hearts of founders Jeff and Marion Rogers. "The Cemetery Club" speaks to enduring friendships and personal choices of the heart. Three Jewish widows visit their husbands' graves every month... enter Sam the butcher. Expect to laugh and to shed tears.  The cast includes Linda Comeau, Kat Gueldner, Rhonda Houck, Jeff and Marion Rogers, and is directed by Jeff Rogers.

This year the caterers, Tonita III, very popular with the local international community, are offering four main course options: chicken breast, grilled fish, breaded fish, and soy Milanese, to accommodate vegetarians and those who are gluten-free. Meals must be specified when purchasing tickets. The dinner includes one free drink, tacos and salsa, salad, the main course, and a dessert.

The five performances (February 4, 6, 7, 10, 11) with the bar opening at 4:30 and includes one matinee February 7 with the bar opening at Noon to make it possible for audience members to attend the renowned local market (tianguis) in La Penita de Jaltemba, attend the show and arrive home in daylight. The venue at Pina Coladas in Guayabitos is wheelchair accessible, large enough to be exciting but small enough to feel intimate.

Donation tickets are 450 pesos and can be purchased online as of December 23. Please contact rogers1651@amtelecom.net or telephone (327) 274-3417 for instructions. You can also purchase tickets in person as of January 3 on Thursdays at La Avenida Restaurant between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon, La Penita de Jaltemba, or on Mondays at the Guayabitos tianguis, between 10:00 am - 12:00 noon.       

All profits support the Cancer de Mama clinic, which provides breast cancer survivors with free prosthetics, prosthetic bras, wigs, hats, makeup, a meal, medical advice, sleeves, and most importantly self-confidence. The attendees arrive from as far away as a nine hour bus ride, and many return as often as they can.
