For 47 years at St. Vincent Summer Theatre, folks have gathered after the show for hot dogs, popcorn and beer at the Cabaret. Founded on the principles of Benedictine hospitality and now held on the Carey Student Center Terrace, the Cabaret is run entirely on donations and is operated by students at the college in Unity.

Patrons can dine inside in the air conditioning or enjoy the breeze outside.

Ginny Puskar, with her friends Joan Hill, Mary Joyce Harrold, Karen Spoonhower and Pat Kelly come to every production put on by St. Vincent Summer Theatre each season.

They thought this year's first show, a musical called “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” was delightful.

On June 30, they saw “Tuesdays With Morrie,” a play about journalist Mitch Albom and his ALS-stricken professor, Morrie Schwartz, who teaches Albom one last lesson on the meaning of life.

“It was sad and funny and opened your heart,” said Kelly of West Newton. “I cried the whole time.”

Also seen after the show: Breana Liberoni, Nicole McCleary, Cindy Baltzer, Leonard and Marilyn Lander and Jim and Maribeth Brecht.
