Encore Seniors’ dinner theatre
The Encore Over the Hill Players present You Bet Your Bippy, a dinner theatre show written and directed by Jean Jeacle. Good food, great music, gorgeous bippy girls and assorted looneys will welcome you into the country’s craziest casino. Everyone is encouraged to be a part of the action, coordinated by Jean ( the emcee), Marcel Lalonde ( the sidekick), and assisted by the Bippy Girls ( Yvonne Evans, Carol Hutt, Sue Jesmer, Nean Laplante and Edith Stiles). Special musical acts include The Retreads Barbershop Quartet and the Bitter Volunteers. Also appearing are regulars Maureen Gauthier ( songstress Mabelle), Steve Ellam, Mike Pearson and some very special guests.
Show dates are Oct. 16, 17, 22, and 23 and take place at the Royal Canadian Legion, Second and Cumberland streets in Cornwall. Cocktails are served from 6 p. m. with dinner at 6: 30. Tickets cost $ 30 and include dinner and show with a table reservation. Call 613-937-1525 to reserve. You may also pick tickets up at the Encore Seniors’ Education Centre in Room 141 at St. Lawrence College, Monday to Friday 9 a. m. to noon and 1 to 4 p. m. The show is produced by Kevin Lamoureux in association with the Encore Seniors’ Board of Directors to benefit the Encore Centre and programs.
