Dio offers audience favorite “Savannah Sipping Society” June 14–July 19

Preview June 08, 2018 Encore Staff

PINCKNEY—The Dio – Dining & Entertainment presents The Savannah Sipping Society by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, directed by Susan Craves.

In this comedy from the writers of Dio favorites The Dixie Swim Club and Always a Bridesmaid, four Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by fate – and an impromptu happy hour – and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment – and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new “old friends.” The Savannah Sipping Society features performances by Alisa Mutchler Bauer, Brenda Lane, Amy Morrisey and Kez Settle.

Director Susan Craves says, “Savannah Sipping Society is a story that celebrates life – the ups and downs and the in-between. A story that our group of talented and dedicated actors, designers and production team have worked enthusiastically and tirelessly on for your enjoyment!”

Performances take place from June 15 through July 22, Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. There will be two Thursday evening performances, June 14 and July 19. Tickets for all performances are available now and may be purchased by visiting diotheatre.com or by calling (517) 672-6009. Seating is limited. Advanced reservations are strongly recommended.

All tickets include dinner, dessert and non-alcoholic beverages. The menu for The Savannah Sipping Society is inspired by the Southern setting of our show and includes garden salad with choice of dressing, freshly baked honey buttered dinner rolls, sweet and spicy (but not too spicy) Savannah red rice with sautéed celery, onions, tomatoes and smoky bacon (a vegan version will also be available), Georgia greens braised in a blend of southern style herbs and spices, grilled bone in pork chops with house-made barbecue sauce on the side, plus our signature fried chicken, boneless hand breaded and fried to a golden brown, and for dessert a southern treat, lemon bars!
