Dinner and a show at Parkland

Parkland Secondary School students are combining forces — and talents — next month for a fundraiser that is sure to please

Parkland Secondary School students are combining forces — and talents — next month for a fundraiser that is sure to please.

On Thursday, June 5, Parkland senior acting students from Fine Arts teacher Christine Irving’s acting class will join forces with the senior culinary students from teacher Heidi Hackman’s class for their final project of the school year — a night of comedy complete with a tasty, three course meal.

“At 6:30 p.m., guests will be welcomed with appetizers then entertained by the first show, Dinner at 8, Dead by 9,” explained Irving.

“Guests will then be treated to a feast before the second show, And Then There was One, which takes place on a deserted island owned by a mysterious millionaire and features a bevy of unusual characters.”

After the second show, guests will finish the evening with a tasty dessert, Irving added.

Tickets for the evening event are $20 in advance with reserved seating through the box office at Parkland Secondary. Stop by the school or call to reserve tickets by Visa or MasterCard at 250-655-2736 until June 4 (dietary needs such as vegetarian or gluten free options will be accommodated and must be mentioned when purchasing a ticket).
