St. John Theatre and Jambalaya: An unexpected combination

RESERVE — While the community has come to expect quality entertainment at St. John Theatre over the past 40 years, the local cultural center is now navigating challenging times. St. John Theatre will host a jambalaya dinner fundraiser to get through these hard times and get back to providing family fun to the community.

The $10 benefit dinner includes jambalaya, white beans, salad, bread and a cookie. Dinners will be served in a drive-thru format from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 16 at St. John Theatre, located at 115 W. Fourth St. in Reserve.

“St. John Theatre has been bringing quality entertainment and joy to our community for 40 years,” said a representative from St. John Theatre. “Please remember us during these trying times by supporting our fundraisers. We love and appreciate the people of the River Parishes, and we thank you for your support.”
