The round trip takes place in The Lamp Post Restaurant where time travelers can dine on a buffet meal while sitting in on a rendition of a musical variety radio show set during World War II. The dinner theatre scheduled for Thursday, June 25, features an original script written by Footlight members Suzette Riggin and Tom Sweeny. In addition to a full com- plement of songs that were popular during the war years, the audience will hear the news and commer- cials of southern Delaware, circa 1944. Riggin said war updates and, appropriately for Delmarva, crop reports, are all part of the entertain- ment. Letters fashioned after those from "the boys over there" and announcements of the local hap- penings will be read between songs made popular by the Andrews Sisters, Tommy Dorsey and Hoagy Carmichael. Riggin and .her real-life sister Shannon Dadzie perform famous Andrews Sisters tunes such as "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy." The production company is bringing "Sentimental Journey Radio Show" back to The Lamp Post by popular demand. Footlight was recently commissioned to pro- vide a private performance for a large tour party visiting the area and other patrons of the restaurant overheard the strains of songs such as "A Nightingale Sang in Berke- ley Square," "Stars Fell on Alaba- ma" and "A Tisket, a Tasket." "People who poked their heads in and heard us last month began to call and ask when they could see our show," said Sweeny. "The owners of The Lamp Post contact- ed us and we decided to schedule a show for the public."
