Portland Players Presents Bonnie & Clyde The Musical
Make it dinner and a show on Friday or Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. The Portland Players fall show is Bonnie & Clyde The Musical.
At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America's most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement's worst nightmares. This thrilling and sexy new musical uses an exciting, non-traditional score that includes elements of blues, gospel and rockabilly to tell the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of the entire nation.
The Portland Players theatre is located at 420 Cottage Road in South Portland, just down the road from your dinner destination.
Showtimes are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

Ever wanted to drink a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup? You can at The Bar of Chocolate. The desserts are insane, too.
