"Vicki's Eatery offers an extra double delight for ticket holders attending one of the Friday or Saturday 7:30 performances," says Community Theatre president Ted Presler. "A performance ticket is $10. A full Italian meal served by Vicki's, which shares a building with the Elks theater, is $35, including the performance. Those special meals, beginning at 5:30 November 10, 11, 17, and 18, are really limited, so that theater goers will want to buy their Vicki's tickets as soon as possible. People can buy dinner-performance tickets only at Vicki's."

Heribert von Feilitzsch grew up in Germany, only yards from the East German border, the "Iron Curtain." In 1988 he came to the United States as a student. Fascinated with the Mexican-American border, he pursued a Masters Degree in Latin-American History with focus on Mexican-German-American relations at the University of Arizona. After twenty years of painstaking original research in the U.S., Mexico, and Germany, von Feilitzsch authored four books on the German naval intelligence agent Felix A. Sommerfeld and the German secret service in the United States between 1914 and 1917. He lives on a farm in Northern Virginia with his wife and children.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. at the Santa Clara Armory. For more information, contact Cecilia Bell at 388-4477, or Doug Dinwiddie at 388-4862.
