Members of the military are gathering at Arena Stage in Southwest D.C. this hour for a late Thanksgiving dinner. The theater company has invited more than 200 wounded warriors, active service members and their families for a free dinner and performance.

This is the fourth year the company has held a Thanksgiving dinner and performance for service members. Holly Oliver, with Arena Stage, says that members of the military of all ranks and ages have attended.

"Guests that have been to the theater before, guests that have never been to Arena Stage before, and some that this is their first theatrical experience," he says.

This year, after dinner, guests will see a performance of the musical Fiddler on the Roof.
