Hunting for treasure
St. John the Baptist Anglican Church hosts annual dinner theatre
Food and fun will be served up in equal portions during the Taint’d Saints dinner theatre’s spring presentation at St. John the Baptist Church.
“The Case of the Missing Treasure” is a spoof of the oldfashioned ’40s and ’50s private eye flicks including the film “Noire Vibe!”
The Hughes Hotel is being torn down and the time is ticking for its residents to find the hidden treasure mentioned in the will of its former owner G.G.G. Hughes or it’ll be buried forever in the rubble.
Where’s the treasure? Who’s threatening the current tenants, employees and owners of the hotel? Cue none other than private eye Harvey Monday who will be searching for the facts, just the facts. And the truth will surprise everyone.
This year’s show dates are April 28-30 and May 5-6. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the performance begins at 7 p.m. each night at the St. John the Baptist Church on King Street in North Sydney.
Tickets are $30 per person and include salad, roast beef supper, dessert, tea/coffee and the theatre performance. Wine is available pre-show and at intermission at an extra cost of $5 per glass.
Advance tickets sales and reserve seats only. Tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged and are not available at the parish office.
Box office dates are Saturday, Feb. 25 from 1-3 p.m., Saturday, March 4 from 1-3 p.m. and Thursday, March 9 from 7-8 p.m. Theatregoers unable to pick up tickets on those dates can call 902-794-3326 for tickets. Tickets will be held for pickup for three days only.
