Some songs are recommended for mature audiences. In keeping with the Villains, Vixens, and Vices theme, a gourmet dinner with a “Death by Chocolate” dessert begins at 6:30 p.m. before the Saturday show and 1:30 p.m. before the Sunday performance. Admission for these performances is $25 with the dinner. Admission to all performances without the dinner is $5. SU students, faculty and staff are admitted free with school ID.
