Play performed during three-course gourmet meal

YARMOUTH - Amateur Theater Company will be presenting its fourth annual dinner theatre Nov. 24 and 25 at Beacon United Church.  This year’s presentation is Odor in the Court. 

The play tells the story of two unsuspecting tourists visiting a town where outdated and obscure laws on the books are enforced. The play will be performed during a three-course gourmet meal. Each performance begins at 6 p.m. 

The meal is by chef Kaitlyn Grimes and includes a choice of a mixed garden salad with cranberry vinaigrette or smoky roasted red pepper soup as appetizer. 

The main course will be a choice of sweet-and-sour braised brisket or apple-fennel pan-seared chicken breast with balsamic drizzle.  A vegetarian option of pesto pasta with sundried tomato and garden vegetables with grilled portabella mushroom is also available.

A choice of classic vanilla bean crème brule or gluten-free chocolate torte with berry coulis are dessert choices.

Those purchasing tickets will need to select meal at time of purchase. Wine is available at additional cost.  Tickets are $35 and are available at the Beacon United Church office between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. every weekday or Sunday following the church service.  All tickets must be purchased in advance and there will be no tickets at the door. Seating is limited.

Rev. Sharon Lohnes, minister at Beacon United Church, and Janet Sollows wrote this year’s play. 

Every year the actors get into character more and more as practising continues, says Sollows.

“It’s fun as they take the script and make it their own.  They add their own humour,” she said.

All proceeds for the fundraiser go towards maintaining Beacon United Church for community use.
