First Date at the SCA

Event Dates: 08/14/2015 through 08/30/2015

Mason Street Warehouse presents:

FIRST DATE
August 14--30

When blind-date-newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a lively, high-stakes dinner. In a delightfully funny twist, Casey and Aaron's "inner critics" come to life as other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes, and judgmental parents who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers, and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives? The Associated Press calls the musical "sassy, madcap fun ... this is one First Date you don't want to end!" Regional Premiere
