If you were anywhere near the town of Luseland this past weekend, you were probably able to hear roaring laughter coming from the Homecoming Hall. Pothole Productions held their 16th annual Dinner Theatre event over Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Janelle Fischer is Co-Chair of Pothole Productions.

"It was the 'The Real Hillbillies of Beverly Hills', so it was the Beverly Hillbillies meets the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it was a comedy directed by Jared Fischer," she said. The show was centered around Beverly Hillbilly, Elly May, being encouraged to act more lady like by the Real Housewives.

The show had 16 cast and crew members, not including executive members, those who organized the dinner portion of the events and decorators.

Fischer said it's the community support that has kept the dinner theatre running for so long, "Our numbers were up this year, we expanded our venue with extra tables." She noted that Saturday's event had sold out within two days of tickets going on sale, and Thursday's show was the highest grossing Thursday night show in the organization's history.

They also have a growing cast, with younger members joining on each year. Fischer said it's great to have younger members join and carry on the production, "In the past, we had a high school student involved in our plays and we were able to get more high school students involved with set preparations. In terms of getting younger actors involved, it has to do with friendships, one person maybe recommending it to another person and getting those younger people in."

Total proceeds from the event have not yet been calculated, but Fischer said regardless of the numbers, they are happy with the turnout, "We thank the community and everyone who helped out... Thanks to everyone who made the trip to the show, and giving excellent feedback given throughout the years."
