STOUGHTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – A production that was supposed to happen before COVID in Stoughton is coming back to center stage.
The Paris Cabaret Starline Room Dinner Theatre celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2021. While the one-of-a-kind theatre was shut down most of that year because of the pandemic, the venue is getting ready to lift the curtains once again.
“For 18 months we were closed,” said owner Paris Kampanelas. Now this weekend, she will lead a caravan of local talent as she directs the theatre’s re-opening performance of “Bye Bye Birdie.”
“I love the classic musicals,” she said. “That’s how I grew up and it [has] great songs, [a] great story, happy ending. It’s a hidden gem in the town of Stoughton.”
Starline will no longer serve full dinners at their shows for the foreseeable future, but Charcuterie trays, cocktails and desserts will be available.
The theatre will have two weekend performances: one Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and the other Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Future performances of “Bye Bye Birdie” are scheduled for March as well. The theatre is located at 49 Monk Street in Stoughton and reservations are required.
