LIVE BAIT CHRISTMAS DINNER THEATRE RETURNS!
December 6 @ 7:00 pm - December 9 @ 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 16, 2017
Live Bait Theatre presented its first Christmas dinner theatre, The Krazy Family Christmas Reunion, by Charlie Rhindress and Karen Valanne, in 1994. This type of wacky, musical dinner theatre became an annual tradition for close to twenty years, but the company has not produced an interactive holiday show for the past couple of years.
Now Live Bait is bringing back the tradition, partnering with Charlie Rhindress to present a Christmas dinner theatre. Rhindress is directing a new production of “A Rockin’ Little Christmas”, which he co-wrote with Valanne and premiered at the company in 1996. The show, which will be updated for this new production, features classic rock ‘n’ roll from the 1950’s and 60’s and will run at the Sackville Legion, Dec. 6th to 9th and 13th to 16th. The Anne Murray Centre will also present the show for two nights, November 29 and 30, at the Dr. Carson and Marion Murray Centre in Springhill, NS.
“Karen and I wrote about thirty dinner theatres for Live Bait over a twenty year period,” Rhindress said. “This was one of our earliest so it’s nice to have a chance to go back and rewrite this early script, incorporating a lot of what we learned over the years.”
In the show, everyone in town has gathered at the River Road High cafeteria on Christmas Eve because there have been a number of UFO sightings over the past few days. People are scared the town is going to be attacked so they gather at the school, which has a bomb shelter. In typical dinner theatre style the show features wild characters, big plot twists and lots of laughs.
