My husband I went with friends last Friday night to the Wildcat dinner-theatre production of “Rumours.” From start to finish, the dinner and play were extremely well done.
We were directed to the school cafeteria by a character in costume and introduced to our server —another character in costume. All play characters doubled as servers and other helpers for the meal.
The dinner was excellent and it was evident that much care and thought had gone into the décor and food choice.
Ben Ho and his “chefs” had prepared an excellent meal and our server was attentive to our needs, taking great care to “serve left” and “remove right.”
We were then ushered to the Performing Arts Centre to preferred seating reserved for dinner-theatre patrons; those with “play only” tickets were seated later.
The play itself was humorous, with many small touches adding to the humour. Even when it was apparent there was a bit of a mix-up with names at one point, the character speaking never missed a beat and took full advantage of the situation, turning it into more laughs.
My husband and I agreed that it was a very well-done play — even better knowing it was performed by our local Grade 12 high school students with a passion for theatre. We heard similar comments from other attendees.
We have gone to numerous dinner theatres in Red Deer and we can assure you the quality of the meal and the performance in Stettler didn’t disappoint. We also agreed that if this is the group of young people coming into the world of work, we are in very good hands.
Thank you to Wildcat Theatre for a fun and memorable evening.
