Royal mys­tery brew­ing at Grace Vil­lage Pavil­ion

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - By Matthew Mccully

Roll out the red car­pet. The Royal fam­ily is com­ing to Grace Vil­lage Pavil­ion to host a feast and cel­e­brate the wed­ding of the Queen’s grand­daugh­ter, Princess Eugenie, who will wed her part­ner of seven years, wine mer­chant Jack Brooks­bank.

There will be food; there will be en­ter­tain­ment; oh, and there will be a mur­der!

Or­ga­nized by pro­lific mur­der mys­tery din­ner theatre play­wright Mead Bald­win and em­ploy­ees from the Grace Vil­lage Pavil­ion, the event is a fundraiser for the Dr. W. J. Klinck Foun­da­tion.

“This is lit­er­ally the event of the year,” Bald­win said, dur­ing a meet­ing yes­ter­day at Grace vil­lage with the cast of the up­com­ing Royal mur­der mys­tery.

Bald­win has 15 dif­fer­ent mur­der mys­ter­ies un­der his belt, per­formed around the Town­ships over the last 10 years.

The up­com­ing fundraiser at the pavil­ion will fea­ture a cast of around a dozen ac­tors, in­clud­ing four Grace Vil­lage staff mem­bers mak­ing their din­ner theatre de­but.

Bald­win said the event will main­tain the theme of the royal wed­ding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooks­bank. Her majesty the Queen will of course toast the new cou­ple, and Sarah Fer­gu­son and Prince An­drew are also on the royal guest list.

A pro­to­col of­fi­cer will also be at the wed­ding to en­sure ev­ery­one in at­ten­dance fol­lows pro­ce­dure when in the pres­ence of the Queen.

At­ten­dees are en­cour­aged to ‘dress for the oc­ca­sion’.

En­ter­tain­ment for the wed­ding will be pro­vided by non other than ‘El­ton Don’ (Don­ald Patriquin).

The event will in­clude a three-course meal and an op­por­tu­nity to rub el­bows with the cream of Bri­tish so­ci­ety; that is, un­til some­one in the room is mur­dered. Then things will get in­ter­est­ing. Tick­ets to the ‘Royal Wed­ding’ cost $50, a por­tion of which is el­i­gi­ble as a tax re­ceipt.

They can be pur­chased on­line at gracevil­lage.ca/din­nerthe­atre or at Grace Vil­lage Pavil­ion, lo­cated at 1515, rue Pleas­ant View in Hunt­ingville.
