Dinner Theatre Takes Audience On A Journey Through Second World War September 15, 2006 Article in the The Daily News (Truro NS) By Harry Sullivan Truro - A popular dinner theatre that transported participants through a mental journey to the battle fields of long ago is returning to a local stage. "It was as though Truro had been transported to another era as veterans of the Second World War walked through camouflaged areas and shelter tents," a Truro Daily News reporter wrote, of last year's play. The event, sponsored by Royal Canadian Legion Br. 26, is part of the Time to Remember series of stage productions conducted by the 440 Productions Association, a group of current and former students of Yarmouth Consolidated Memorial High. While the event does have its serious moments, said event chairwoman Jane Allen, "their hope is to bring a smile to the lips and a gleam of recognition to the eye. If you were 'there' in the 40s, you may well catch a glimpse of some part of your own life. If you are of recent vintage, you may gain deeper insight into 'the way it was' during wartime." Many of the stories portrayed in the stage production are taken from the actual events of veterans, war brides and others who lived through the Second World War. The dinner theatre is set for Oct. 7, at 6:30 p.m., but it is recommended that everyone be seated by 6. "And what a way to treat your entire family to Thanksgiving dinner," Allen said. "We're serving turkey with all the trimmings." Tickets are $30.00 per person and are available at the legion bar, which is open at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information call 895-6529.
