There are many decades that drift by without leaving behind any memorable images and memories.
The 1950s were not one of them. Just say 1950s and poodle skirts and bobby socks, big-finned cars and 25-cent packs of cigarettes, chocolate shakes and cherry Cokes, plus unforgettable doo-wop music leaps to mind.
This weekend the drama team at Oakwood Church will return to the ‘50s as it presents “Uncle Phil’s Diner,” an interactive dinner theater. The menu includes traditional diner fare such cheeseburgers, French fries and fountain drinks.
The theatrical event starts at 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday with food, music and other entertainment including the rock ‘n roll music of the Dish Wops.
Tickets are $12 and seating is limited.
The show’s director Marjorie Lincoln said, “Put on your poodle skirts and leather jackets and come enjoy an evening of entertainment unlike anything you have ever seen. Try Uncle Phil’s Diner, where the food is fresh and so is the help!”
The church is located at Highway 83 and Oakwood Road in the Town of Delafield.
