FORT PAYNE, Ala. — The DeKalb County Children's Advocacy Center will host its annual dinner theatre event next month.

The event, which was recently renamed "The Eddie McPherson Memorial Dinner Theater", will be held at Fort Payne First United Methodist Church's Christian Life Center. The church is located at 206 Grand Avenue NW in Fort Payne. 

The fundraiser was renamed after Mr. McPherson, passed away unexpectedly last November. McPherson wrote 17 plays for the event, as well as participated as an actor and director in several productions.

This year's play is entitled "Deliver Us From Mama." It was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. The production will be directed by Amber McPherson. 

The performance dates include February 6, 7, 8, 10, 13, 14, and 15, 2020. Doors open each night at 6:05 pm with dinner served at 6:30 pm and the play beginning at 7:30 pm. 

Tickets are by reservation only. Contact the DeKalb County Children's Advocacy Center at (256) 997-9700 to reserve your seats!
