Dinner Theatre to host comedy depicting modern marriage

LAKE GEORGE - The Lake George Dinner Theatre celebrates its 43rd season this summer with the regional premiere of Our Son's Wedding, a new comedy by Donna de Matteo.

The production will run from June 30 through Oct. 14 at the newly renovated Holiday Inn Resort in Lake George.

In the play, sparks fly as an Italian-American plumber and his strong-willed wife check into Boston's Ritz-Carlton Hotel on the occasion of their son's marriage to another man, according to Terry Rabine, Producer of the Lake George Dinner Theatre.

"In the hilarious antics preparing to attend the wedding, Mom and Dad discover as much about their own marriage as they do about the relationship with their son, while coming to terms with a love that transcends tradition," Rabine said. "Our Son's Wedding is a timely, 'laugh-out-loud,' poignant new play."

The production features Paul D'Amato, whose portrayal of "Dr. Hook" McCracken alongside Paul Newman in the film Slapshot has earned him cult status among sports film fans. D'Amato's film credits also include The Deer Hunter and FX. Co-starring in Our Son's wedding is Marina Re, who returns to Lake George after her acclaimed performance as Molly in last season's hit, Old Love. The production will be directed by Rabine.

Early Bird patron discount tickets are available by calling 306-4404. Group discounts are also available for all performances. Lake George Dinner Theatre welcomes organizations to attend as part of the Theatre's "Friends of LGDT" program that includes discount pricing, lobby displays of the organization's marketing material and special mention during the show's curtain speech. Group fundraising events for non-profit organizations are also welcomed.

New this season is the Theatre's expanded matinee schedule. Matinee performances are scheduled for every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with evening shows every Wednesday through Saturday nights. Details are available at www.lakegeorgedinnertheatre.com.
