Byron Civic Theatre brings M*A*S*H to stage

The stage at Byron Civic Theatre (BCT) is being transformed into the 4077 M*A*S*H unit. As this cast of 30 prepares for opening night, the construction crew is creating its own magic.

For 11 years, we watched the talented actors portray characters from the 4077, now we can watch our very own talented area actors in this delightful stage adaptation of M*A*S*H with all its zany antics and humor.

Along with the show, BCT will once again host its popular “themed” dinner theater. The dinner will be Saturday, Feb. 4, prior to the 8 p.m. show, in the Byron High School Commons.

If you attend, prepare to feel as if you are a member of the 4077. Your meal will start with a Korean salad, your entree will consist of ground sirloin steak, chicken breast, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans almandine, and bread and butter. And, to top off this delicious meal, BCT will serve ice cream and pie for dessert. You will have your choice of coffee or lemonade to drink with your meal.

Seating is limited to the first 120 guests, so don’t delay in making your reservation. Tickets for dinner and show may be purchased at the same time.

Tickets are now available for M*A*S*H and may be reserved by calling 234-3000 during box office hours, which are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. Or, reserve your tickets via e-mail to the box office e-mail address at

Ticket prices for the dinner are $11 per ticket. Prices for a show ticket are $9 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for students.

Remaining show dates are Friday-Sunday, Feb. 3-5. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.

BCT now offers a “coffee bar,” carrying more than 50 varieties of coffees, teas, espresso and cappuccino. Special blends of coffee will be available before the show and at intermission.

This BCT production is co-directed by Penny Wiegert and Brian Brooks.
