Every summer my cross-stitching group goes for dinner & a play. This year, we thought we’d combine the excursion & go to a dinner theatre. We saw “Heard It Through The Grapevine”, & it did not disappoint! We showed up excited, & hungry, which was the perfect combination, because there was lots of delicious food, and outstanding entertainment.
The play is set in “Potatoville” PEI, with the action centering on the mayor stepping down from his office, & 2 of the townspeople running against each other in an election. The audience also participates as towns people, contributing questions to the debate, & voting for the new mayor.
At first we weren’t sure how good of a time we would have. The actors are also the waiters, & they stay in character the whole time. Our waiter was the town bumpkin, & he did a great job of playing his part. One of the mayoral candidates took a shine to our table, & tried very hard to win over Ellen & Adri, even going so far as to serenade them!
I’d say he succeeded, wouldn’t you?
