Nothing is silent about this night where four singers serve up cool versions of Sinatra mainstays like "Fly Me To The Moon," "New York, New York," "That's Life," "Love and Marriage," "I Get A Kick Out of You," "I've Got You Under My Skin," and "The Lady is a Tramp".

You loved Unnecessary Farce! Come see playwright Paul Slade Smith's latest clever creation The Outsider. Ned Newley doesn't even want to be governor. He's terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy. Read more about St. Croix Off Broadway Dinner Theatre Opens 14th Season With "The Outsider"
