The Vineyard Café & Dinner Theatre -

The next show up in April is Barefoot in the Park, a comedy by Neil Simon,
starring Mandy Fason, Tony Smithey, Cindy Copeland, Edward Howard and Caleb Fason.


Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. After a six day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie's loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does.


Mandy Fason as Corie Bratter 

Corie Bratter, a newlywed, married only six days at the beginning of the play. She is young, pretty, and full of enthusiasm for the future. Impulsive and fun-loving, she considers herself a doer, not a watcher. Her impetuosity is not shared, at first, by her mother or husband, and they are aghast when she cheers the crazy antics of Victor, a neighbor. Corie eventually learns to appreciate dependability and quiet strength.

Tony Smithey as Paul Bratter

Paul Bratter, Corie’s husband, a twenty-six-year-old attorney in his first job. Both his dress and his outlook are very conservative. Extremely proper and dignified, he always knows the right thing to say. He is levelheaded and practical, and he keeps his emotions in check, perhaps too much so. After Corie accuses him of lacking playfulness, he shows her that he, too, is capable of walking barefoot in the park.

Cindy Copeland as Ethel Banks

Ethel Banks, Corie’s mother. She is in her late forties. Although she is still pretty, she has fallen out of step with the fashions. She lives alone in West Orange, New Jersey. Consciously or unconsciously, she has adopted a narrow image of herself as someone with a sensitive stomach, a bad back, and no need for romance. It takes a wild evening out with Victor for Ethel to rediscover her carefree and spontaneous self.

Edward Howard as Victor Velasco

Victor Velasco, the Bratters’ upstairs neighbor. Fifty-eight years old, he is a colorful character. Although capable of looking positively natty in a double-breasted pinstriped suit, he also wears Japanese kimonos and berets. He is vain, flamboyant, and without shame when it comes to letting someone else pick up a tab. Married three times, he is a terrific flirt. He is also a gourmet cook; Paul refers to him as the “Hungarian Duncan Hines.” There are signs that Victor is beginning to slow down. After an exhilarating evening of his own creation, he suffers a broken toe and an upset stomach.

Caleb Fason as Harry Pepper

Harry Pepper, a telephone repairman. He witnesses, to his mortification, a fight between Corie and Paul.

Reviews from our guests


I wish I could give more than five stars for the unbelievable evening I just shared with my family!  We came for the dinner theater to see Driving Miss Daisy. From the beginning we were all blown away - great customer service, AMAZING food + to top it off, an extremely realistic and entertaining rendition of Driving Miss Daisy. I'd highly suggest coming here for an intimate evening with your significant other, friends or family. We'll for sure be back to see Steel Magnolias.



"What a delightful evening on the Marietta Square . Their dinner was great , cozy setting and kudos to the actors for a wonderful, funny , performance! Great for date-nights or with friends !"



"Four friends and I went to the dinner theater here last night and had a WONDERFUL time! We enjoyed a great buffet dinner. The food was delicious. Then we were treated to a play of Steel Magnolias. The play was fantastic and the performers were so talented and pulled me into the story immediately. Even though I have seen the movie of Steel Magnolias numerous times this was still such a refreshing version as the actors made each character their own. I was so thoroughly entertained! The owners were very welcoming and made sure that everyone had a good time. I will most definitely be going again!"


"We had a BLAST!! We’ve been talking about it all morning!! Can’t wait to see what the next show is!"


"Not many places where you can get dinner and a show anymore so was excited about this one! Vineyard Cafe did not disappoint. They had a delicious buffet and the show was fantastic. It is a small venue but the actors made the best use of the space they had and really entertained. Am looking forward to going again".



"My boyfriend and I attended Opening Night and were delighted with the production and acting. This was a wonderful evening with dinner and the play. We had such a great time. We found the actors to be accomplished and very approachable afterwards taking pictures with the audience members. Highly recommended!!!"
