Overthinking Valentines Plans? Try Drinks, Chocolate & A Few Laughs

So, you’re looking for something that’s a little different than your usual dinner and wine routine?  Single and want a night out with friends to celebrate your independence?  Just started dating and the intensity of a quiet meal is awkward?  You’ve been married for 30 years and you’re just over the hearts and flowers?  Well, have we got the night for you!

Valentines-Feb-2018-Show

VOS Theatre director J.P. Baldwin chose Speed Date and Check Please: Take 2 because they’re plays that entertain without being heavy. “Whether you’re currently single, casually dating, a serial monogamist or been married for years, we can promise that you will identify with some of the characters you meet! The 2 one act plays we are presenting take the audience through the good, bad and well….just plain strange world of break ups, dating and relationships.”

The staged reading features actors Heather Town, Khursheed Sethna, Krista Sluiman, Jules Osen, Dan Fraleigh and Chris Ketola.

Doors open at Dalewood at 6:45 p.m. where you’ll find the bar is open so you can enjoy a pre-show cocktail.  The good news is you’ll pass the dessert buffet on your way to the bar. “Valentines Day is all about chocolate! Chef Jennifer Robson recommends, “Treat yourself to our decadent buffet of cakes, square and chocolate covered strawberries.” Guests are welcome to enjoy some sweets before the staged reading or at intermission.

We caught up with Marketing representative for Dalewood, Aimee Tedford who told us “We are so happy to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with VOS Theatre on three theatrical presentations this year. It has certainly expanded our horizons as to what we can offer as a club to both the public and our members. We look forward to partnering with VOS THEATRE on new and exciting projects for the 2018-2019 season.

Want to be involved?

Producer Florence Fletcher is looking for help with the Valentines Readings. She would love to have a couple of people assist with gathering a few props and costume pieces. Remember, this is a reading not a show so the list of items needed is not long. No experience is necessary and the time commitment isn’t onerous. It’s a perfect way for you to get your feet wet and enjoy the fabulous experience of working with the Dalewood team. It’s been so much fun working at this venue. As Florence says “the more we work together the more fun we have!”

Please give her a call at 905-372-9010 or email her for more information at fflectcher3@cogeco.ca
