SOUP’S ON

Don’t let win­ter slow you down – go see a show

Cape Breton Post - - COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS - Ann Marie Yorke Ann Marie Yorke has worked closely with the Rich­mond County tourism in­dus­try and has been a Tourism In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer in St. Peter’s for 15 years. She looks for­ward to your com­ments at an­n­mariey­orke@hot­mail.com.

The Ni­cholas Denys Play­ers have soup on the menu for the­atre-go­ers.

Two Rivers Tun­nel, the ground­hog at the Two Rivers Wildlife Park in Mar­ion Bridge, may not have seen his shadow, thus fore­cast­ing an early spring, but he didn’t say we would not have snow lead­ing up to that early spring turnover.

Af­ter hav­ing checked out the long-range fore­cast for the rest of Fe­bru­ary, it looks like there is still lots of snow head­ing our way.

So much for the weather. Are we go­ing to let that slow us down? No way!

In true Cape Bre­ton fash­ion we can still get out and en­joy all the fun filled win­ter ac­tiv­i­ties that are avail­able un­til spring fi­nally does ar­rive.

One event sched­uled to take place, which will have you laugh­ing in your seats, is the St. Peter’s Com­mu­nity Club pro­duc­tion of “Pot Luck Soup” with the Ni­co­las Denys Play­ers. The play is set in a lo­cal diner, with its usual lively group of clien­tele en­joy­ing the chef’s tra­di­tional dishes, but when the clients start act­ing more lively than usual, one must won­der just what is in the soup of the day.

Pot Luck Soup will take place at the St. Peter’s Lions Hall on Fe­bru­ary 17, doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the play starts at 7 p.m., tick­ets are $10 each and can be pur­chased at C&M Video in St. Peter’s and at the door be­fore the play.

Pot Luck Soup is an orig­i­nal play writ­ten and pre­formed by lo­cal vol­un­teers, from the St. Peter’s area. With all money raised from the pro­duc­tion goes to the St. Peters Com­mu­nity Club (which op­er­ates the Ni­co­las Denys Mu­seum).

Ear­lier this month, the pro­duc­tion group had the first show­ing of Pot Luck Show as a din­ner the­atre, which was a sold out event with rave re­views from all who at­tended, there was such an amount of in­ter­est ex­pressed in see­ing the show, that the group de­cided to have a sec­ond show­ing of the play. If you did not have the good for­tune of see­ing the play the first time, this is your op­por­tu­nity. For a night away from think­ing of shov­el­ing snow, come and en­joy the St. Peter’s Com­mu­nity Clubs pro­duc­tion of Pot Luck Soup. You will never think about soup in the same way again af­ter see­ing this hu­mor­ous pro­duc­tion.
