Someone would say dinner theater is a lost art. Others would just go to a new one this upcoming Friday at the Park Inn by Radisson from 5 to 8 p.m. WRC Senior Services presents the “Mobsters, Molls and Marinara” dinner theater at 45 Holiday Inn Road in Clarion.

Killer food and an even deadlier story are set to be the main attractions Friday for up to 150 willing souls. Tickets cost $55 for one person, but you can make it a date for only $100. If you want to be really ambitious, get a group of eight friends and $400 to have the mystery dinner adventure of your lifetime!
