You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up! Midwest Premiere EXTENDED!

07/01/22 06:00PM - 09:30PM

Without a doubt, the Midwest Premiere of YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY SHUT UP! is a hit! With the initial 6 performance run selling to near or at capacity and hearing from so many people that they would love to come, but the dates didn't work for them with vacations and other commitments - we have decided to extend the run for 2 more weekends!

SO, 4 more chances to welcome back to the Central Illinois stages - EDDIE URISH as he stars in the hilarious marriage comedy - "You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!" written by Annabelle Gurwitch & Jeff Kahn which he previously performed in New York.

The extension performances are July 1, 2, 8, & 9 and will feature an award winning 3 entree buffet from The Waterhouse! Cost is $48 per person for dinner and the show. 

Admissions available for purchase online at beginning 6/11! Seating is at 6p, dinner buffet at 6:30p, with the show starting at 7:30p.

The dinner buffet will feature Roast Beef au jus, Boneless Chicken Breast in a creamy White Wine Sauce with Mushrooms, Pasta Primavera with choice of Alfredo or Marinara, Balsamic Greek Salad, Party Potatoes, Green Beans with Bacon, Dinner Rolls, and for dessert Texas Sheetcake or Peanut Butter Sheetcake!!

The show will star Central Illinois native and professional actor/director EDDIE URISH. Eddie is best known locally for being the founding Artistic Director of Eastlight Theatre, Co-Founder of Haberdasher’s Dinner Playhouse, and the original director of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, as well as his 5 years as the morning show co-anchor on WMBD-TV. Since that time, he has gone on to direct and perform in professional productions both in Regional Theatre and on National Tour!

Playing opposite of Eddie is PAULA VAN KUREN, a classically trained Soprano, music educator, actress, certified personal trainer AND owner/operator of AerFire – an innovative program designed to merge the latest in exercise science with the Aerial Arts!
