'Nashville Scenes' at the Acorn-An Update

Posted By on Tue, Jul 28, 2009 at 9:14 AM

We told you last week about the upcoming kick-off party for the Tennessee Repertory Theatre's 25th season happening from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 29 at Acorn restaurant.

We now know a few more details. For its silver celebration, The Rep has lined up as close to a season of sure things as the stage offers anymore, from revivals of Steel Magnolias and Proof to a new stage adaptation of A Christmas Story and a new mounting of Roger Miller's Big River. To celebrate its anniversary, and entice viewers for the coming season, The Rep offers staged readings from the featured plays performed by a stellar ensemble: Shane Bridges, Brooke Bryant, Ruth Cordell, Anna Felix, Henry Haggard, Mary Jane Harvill, Denice Hicks, Andy Kanies, Bakari King, Eric D. Pasto-Cosby, Carrie Tillis, Peter Vann, Patrick Waller, Samuel Whited, David Wilkerson and Bobby Wyckoff.

In addition to stimulating your mind, to satisfy your more corporeal needs the Acorn is offering a menu of:

Lump Crab Cakes with Lemon and Cracked Pepper Aioli

Hummus and Pita

Parmesan Laced Tomato and Olive Oil Bruschetta

Roasted Beef Carved Station with Yeast Rolls & condiments

Assorted Petit Fours

With that sort of entertainment and food, this qualifies as the cheapest dinner theater in town. Tickets are $25 and are available online or by calling 244-4878.

The Acorn is located at a 114 28th Ave. S.
