This Valentine’s Day, couples and singles alike can attend a special dinner and show hosted by Mission Waco and Jubilee Theatre.
Mission Waco’s World Cup Café and Jubilee Theatre are putting on an event called “Love Chronicles” on Friday.
Guests will begin with a dinner at the café accompanied by violins. They will have a choice of shrimp scampi, feta chicken or bacon-wrapped filet.
Khira Hailey, Jubilee Theatre director, said “Love Chronicles” is full of various performances to entertain guests.
“It’s a variety show, so there will be types of music, poetry, monologue, audience interactions and different things like that,” Hailey said.
An “old-school R&B” band from Dallas, Band 150, will be performing, and other singers and poets are coming from Dallas as well, Hailey said.
The event will also include a musical performance where an artist will create a painting behind the singer. The painting will be given away to an audience member, Hailey said. She is expecting a wide range of guests — students, locals, young and old.
As for the theme of the Valentine’s Day show, Hailey said “Love Chronicles” is self-explanatory.
“Everything we talk about is the different aspects of love,” she said.
The event, which has been put on for four years, is sold out for tables, but bar seating is still available, Shannon Williams, co-manager, said.
There are two dinner slots, one at 5:30 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m. The live musical performance begins at 7:30 p.m. and lasts until 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the performance are $5 per person and are available online or can be purchased at the door.
The cost for the dinner varies between $18 to $22, depending on the meal entrée.
To make a reservation for remaining bar seating, people can call 254-757-1748.
