Second in our season is "Clarence Darrow"  played by Eric Kibler.  Eric has performed in or directed over 130 productions in the past 45 years.  One of his favorite roles was playing George Bernard Shaw opposite his wife, Amy-Anne here at Selah in “Dear Liar”.  Eric not only plays an attorney in this production, but actually is one. He lives and works in Lisbon, Ohio.

Curtain is at 8:00 pm and doors open for seating at 7:30 pm.  Tickets are only available online at this time.  

Attendees are required to show proof of COVID vaccination.

If you are wanting dinner reservations before the night of your show, make them online on the link below, but please do not reserve a table after 6:00 pm because you will need enough time for us to serve you downstairs at a relaxed pace.

Selah Dessert Theatre is on the second floor of Selah Restaurant and is accessible by stairs only.  All seating is non-reserved.  We promise that every person will have a seat, but because we are a small space, we cannot guarantee that everyone will be able to sit next to each other.  The space is intimate and our performances are wonderful.  We look forward to performing for you.


We are following Broadway protocol and requiring that all patrons are FULLY vaccinated AND must provide proof of vaccination.

COVID Vaccinations are 100% required to attend this play.
