A Christmas time

John Thompson decided to give in to the demands.

Having been inundated with requests for a Christmas dinner show this upcoming season along the lines of last year's production of Mudder's Kitchen Party II, he decided to go on with the show.

Mr. Thompson said there is an appetite for live entertainment in the Exploits Valley that is not being met.

"There is not a whole bunch of things going on entertainment-wise in this town," he said.

Having been inundated with requests for a Christmas dinner show this upcoming season along the lines of last year's production of Mudder's Kitchen Party II, he decided to go on with the show.

Mr. Thompson said there is an appetite for live entertainment in the Exploits Valley that is not being met.

"There is not a whole bunch of things going on entertainment-wise in this town," he said.

He said not too long ago one could watch bands from other parts of the country and continent at venues like the Simwesco and the Logger's Lounge, but those days are gone.

"That is no more," Mr. Thompson said. "There is no more seasonal entertainment available, really. There is not a big pile of anything going on."

The upcoming shows will be held on Dec. 2, 3 and 4 at the Royal Canadian Legion in Grand Falls-Windsor and will be called A Queen Street Christmas.

Audiences can expect a variety of entertainment, all with a Christmas theme.

"This year we will still have the traditional element to it but we will make it a little more contemporary with some more contemporary music in there," Mr. Thompson said.

"We will have traditional Christmas music, some traditional Newfoundland Christ-mas music and songs that we can all sing along to."

Unfortunately, the draperies used in the past for the Mudder's shows will no longer be used, however a smaller, more intimate set is sure to set the mood for a wonderful evening of entertainment.

The entertainment will be provided by members of the Killicks, a popular traditional ensemble. They plan to have several special guests in tow for the event as well.

The roast beef dinner with all the trimmings and decadent Christmas dessert will be served at 6:30 p.m. each evening, with doors opening a half an hour earlier.

Tickets go on sale today and can be purchased at Murph's CafÉ on High St. or the Legion. Individuals, groups and businesses are all welcome to come along.

Organizations: Kitchen Party, Royal Canadian Legion, A Queen Street Christmas

Geographic location: Exploits Valley, Grand Falls-Windsor
