Special opening night offerings
“The Return of Tinker Doyle” opens Friday and runs through June 23 at Pioneer Playhouse. For opening night, special group Powerplay will perform after the show, from 10:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. The group is a 70s-throwback to rock with horns. Shows are 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, and an optional pre-show dinner is available at 7:30 p.m. with reservations. Although the dinner is usually barbecue pork or chicken, Chef Tom Hansen will prepare a traditional Irish meal in honor of the play, offering corned beef, roast potatoes, carrot slaw and other farm-fresh sides. Dinner and a show is $32; tickets are $18 for the show only. A cash bar serving beer, wine and spirits will be open during dinner and the show.
