The debut production of Cabaret Dinner Theatre in Jefferson was a great success, according to the producers as well as the audience.

On March 25, the Cabaret Dinner Theatre, based out of Shreve­port, performed “Driving Miss Daisy” at the Rock House in Jef­ferson. The theatre troupe was established in 2012 by Paul and Janet Moore and Jerry and Lonnie Howard, who realized there wasn’t a dinner theatre in the area.

“Driving Miss Daisy” was the group’s first production in Jef­ferson. The event included dinner outside with catering by The Claiborne House, a performance by The Ramer Gentry Trio and the play. They plan to produce a play in town every quarter, with details to be announced as they’re finalized.

“Thanks to Paul and Janet, we have big-time theatre in our hometown,” said Jefferson resident Steve Turner. “It surpassed all of my expectations. The cast was great, and it’s wonderful to have the quality of the Shreveport Cabaret Dinner Theatre to come to Jefferson.”

Ken Murphy, guest director for the Jefferson show, says the de­but went well.

“The actors felt a great deal of satisfaction doing a play for an audience that truly gave themselves to the show as much as the actors, and they met at a place of mutual appreciation,” he adds. “It was what theatre is about.”
