I have reserved the dinner theatre for our stay in August, as well as the play Mary`s Wedding for the same evening.
Is it worth attending both the dinner theatre as well as the play afterwards...
I am now getting the impression that the dinner theatre may be more music and the later event a play, but not musical... is this correct....
Also, can anyone recommend the roast beef that is served at dinner... my travel buddy is not fond of fish, so there will be a limit of how often she will order it, and I see that the cod meal is the default unless roast beef or fettuccine is requested.
From what I am reading online, I expect that Theatre Newfoundland is the best theatre in the province - looking forward to it!
Excellent. Look forward to hearing how you enjoyed the shows! Gaylene
Hi: I would absolutely recommend seeing both shows. The Ethie dinner theatre is a lovely piece of theatre, some music, some comedy and a sprinkling of drama. The story is based on an actual shipwreck from 1919 (you can even visit the rusted remains - just 15 minutes south of Cow Head and the mailbag that became the infant passenger's safe passage to shore at the lighthouse in Rocky Harbour...by all means call our box office and let them know you want one non-fish meal (I'm really don't know which of the alternates to recommend - I'm not a fan of pasta- so I'd personally choose the beef. The dinner theatre is a lovely relaxing evening complete with your dinner. It's over by shortly after 8 pm - so you have about 1/2-hour until Mary's Wedding, an absolutely stunning play - a fictional love story from WW1. You will laugh, but I can pretty much guarantee there will be tears. I've seen a couple of productions of Mary's Wedding in other parts of Canada and I can honestly tell you it's among my all time favorite plays. AND if you take in both shows on that night you will receive a 10% discount on your tickets to Mary's Wedding - that's our double bill discount. I hope I've helped with your decision-making. Hope to see you in Cow Head!
