In its 45th season, St. Vincent Summer Theatre still provides the region with summertime fun. Based at the Robert S. Carey Performing Arts Center on the Unity campus, the theater has operated in affiliation with the Actors' Equity union, employing professional actors since 1985.

On July 3, after the farce “Too Many Cooks,” patrons enjoyed another dog days tradition at the Cabaret, an after-performance party manned by St. Vincent students.

Richard and Rose Strayer, owners of Rose Strayer Travel in Derry Township, never miss a show. “We come to all of them,” Rose Strayer said. “I haven't seen a bad show.”

“I like to support our local theater. If you don't, you're not going to have one.”

Father Tom Devereux started the Cabaret a year after the theater was founded. It's an outdoor, candlelit affair, with red-checked tablecloths, cheery blue chairs, and hot dogs with all the fixings, popcorn and cold drinks. Father Tom never set a price for the menu, and to this day, the Cabaret operates on patron donations.

Seen at the cabaret: Betsy Pride, with her daughter,Pam Pride, Jaclyn Hepler, Lori Von Stein, Teri Lemmon, Cate Cummings, Carol Oravetz, Ginny Barnett, Theresa Kappel, Dave and Kathy Mizikar, Ed and Bunny Lanyi, Bob and Sharon Petro, Ellie Stoner and Ernie Grandinette.
