St. Albert Dinner Theatre
The city of St. Albert’s only dinner theatre launches its 2018-19 season with The Regifters, a Christmas comedy that strikes at the heart of gift giving.
In playwright Robert Lynch’s comical allegory, a couple re-gifts a present they can’t identify. But after giving it away, they learn it’s extremely valuable.
They set out to retrieve it and discover they’re not the only ones who re-gifted it. A mad chase is on to get it back. But during the pursuit, material greed gives way to learning the value of friendship and true wealth.
The Regifters takes place Nov. 8 to 10, 15 to 17 and 22 to 24 at the Kinsmen Banquet Hall, 47 Riel Dr. Green Bean Catering supplies the buffet dinner. Dinner is at 6 p.m. Show at 8 p.m. $60 regular, $55 seniors. Call 780-222-0102 or online at www.stalbertheatre.com.
