Brings dinner theater to Beacon for St. Pat’s
The audience has come to say goodbye to Patrick James Finnegan, a mailman who won $2.5 million playing the slots at Atlantic City and then promptly dropped dead. As his contentious family gets more and more distraught during this memorable evening, concocted by the co-creator of, “Tony and Tina’s Wedding,” a fight erupts over opening the casket. Finally they do and Paddy’s body is not there! While the missing body is located, the audience can eat, drink and be merry at this authentic Irish-American wake, complete with lively traditional Irish drinking songs and tap and step dancing. Paddy is found, the party continues, and all are treated to a great surprise straight out of “Finnegan’s Wake.”
Performances are Friday and Saturday, March 16 and 17 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 18 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 and include admission and dinner; there will also be a cash bar available. Reservations can be made through The Beacon website or by calling the ticket hotline at: 845-266-8099.
