The Hays Rotary Club and the Hays Community Theatre invites the community to a special Valentine's Day dinner theatre at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Fox Pavilion, 1202 Main.

"Death and Taxes" is an audience interactive mystery-comedy written by Pat Cook and directed by John Simmonds. Two Fort Hays State University students, Emily Leiker, Hays sophomore, and Spencer McCue, Hays freshman, are included in the cast.

The night will open with a social/cash bar at 5:30 p.m. followed by a dinner buffet at 6:30. The curtains open at 7:30.

The dinner buffet will include options such as horseradish-crusted roast beef, sautéed chicken breast with sundried tomato pesto sauce, garden wild rice, roasted potatoes and braided bread rolls. Dinner will be followed by cheesecake or a chocolate torte.

Tickets are available for $35 per person from any Rotary Club member, at the Memorial Union Student Service Center on the FHSU campus, or at the Hays Welcome Center, 2700 Vine. Reservations are available for tables of eight for $280.
