Nothing could be finer than a warm breeze on a starry night, a cold drink and laughter with friends.

After enjoying French playwright Marc Camoletti's farce “Boeing Boeing” on July 2, St. Vincent Summer Theatre patrons relaxed over hot dogs and beer at the Cabaret.

The traditional after-show party began in 1970 because theater founder Father Tom Devereux wanted to feed hungry guests and cultivate community at the Unity campus. It operates with student servers and is funded by guest donations.

It's not unusual to see someone familiar — such as St. Vincent president Brother Norman Hipps — or folks from a little farther away. Bill and Mary Lou Reid drive from their home in Indiana County to catch a show as often as they can. Mary Lou thinks it's the best-kept secret around.

Greensburg attorney David DeRose swears by the hot dogs and likes them piled high with sauerkraut. He ate two.

At the Cabaret: Connie Deemer, Lou and Joan DeRose, Johnette DeRose, Dan and Diane Krivoniak, Bill and Rosemarie McGarrity, Dick and Sally Krinock and Rob and Stephanie Zaccagnini, with their son, Vincenzo.
