A fitting close to cap 30 years of entertainment

SACKVILLE, N.B. – Live Bait Theatre has had a busy and exciting 2018, coinciding with the company's 30th anniversary year.

After a successful summer dinner theatre, Young Company Workshop, provincial tour of Billy Bishop Goes to War, and several other events, Live Bait is rounding out their year with two more major presentations in November and December.

On Friday, Nov. 16, Live Bait will present Ryan Cook performing as Hank Williams at George’s Roadhouse at 7:30 p.m. Cook began performing as Hank Williams in 2009 when he performed consecutive sold-out weeks of the Maynard Collins play, The Show He Never Gave for Live Bait Theatre. Along with bandmates the Drifting Cowboys, this two-act feature performance includes 22 songs from the man hailed by many as the greatest country music singer and songwriter of all time.

Live Bait is also once again presenting their beloved annual Christmas dinner theatre. In No Room at the Inn, written and directed by Charlie Rhindress, a freak snowstorm shuts down the Trans-Canada Highway, leaving a pregnant virgin, a wannabe rapper and a host of other crazy characters spending Christmas Eve together in a makeshift shelter. Featuring a delicious roast turkey dinner with dessert, and with classic Christmas songs and hits from the 1950s to today, the evening is sure to bring smiles to faces of everyone who attends.

No Room at the Inn will be presented at the Amherst Golf Club Nov. 29 through Dec. 1, and at the Sackville Legion Wednesday to Saturday, Dec. 5-15.

Doors for the show open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m. Dinner will be served at approximately 7:30 p.m.
