A heaping helping of hilarity is on the menu at Dunstable Theatre Collaborative these days, as an energetic cast prepares its production of "Don't Dress for Dinner." The Marc Camoletti farce is on stage April 12-13 at 7:30 p.m., and April 14 at 3 p.m., at Dunstable Town Hall.

The tasty shenanigans involve Bernard, who's got romance on his mind. With his wife out of town, an alibi from his best friend and a gourmet chef to add culinary spice, the determined Bernard has the perfect evening planned for his French mistress -- or so he thinks. But hidden identities and outrageous identities cause his best-laid plans to go off track in the clever comedic ride.

Larry Lickteig of Groton leads the cast as Bernard. His fellow thespians include Donna Stram of Dunstable as Jacqueline; Jason George of Dracut as Robert; Lynn Vaillancourt of Townsend as Suzette; Krystin Hicks of Shirley as Suzanne and Christopher McClure of Dunstable as George. Christina Chadzynski of Dunstable directs.

Tickets $12, general admission; $10 students and seniors at www.dunstabletheater.org/product-category/tickets or at the door.
