"La Veillée au Village" offers a charming and lively dinner show filled with comedy and music
Inspired by funny stories they've heard and local characters they've known over the years, Albert Arsenault and his sister Hélène Bergeron (both formerly of the group Barachois) set to work this spring to create a series of comedy sketches interwoven with beautiful songs and lively music. The result of their labours is the dinner-show of "La Veillée au Village".
In addition to being the playwrights, Arsenault and Bergeron serve as the production's artistic directors to a cast composed of five well-known Island Acadian artists, all of whom have extensive experience on the music and/or theatre scene: super-energetic fiddler Louise Arsenault, the fantastic guitar-picking singer Jonathan Arsenault, the amazing multi-instrumentalist and singer Keelin Wedge, the young and talented bass player-pianist-singer Dawson Arsenault and the skilled drummer-guitar player Shane Arsenault.
To learn the details about the skits, you will have to attend the evening. There are lots of surprises and interesting costumes and scenery. As for the music and songs, there are some of all kinds. Each member of the troupe presents numbers that fit their talents, personalities and their skit characters and situations.
This year, the evening begins with a three-course meal followed by two 45-minute music-and-sketch sets. For the main course, there is a choice of a seafood casserole or the Acadian Variety. This event is offered Tuesday through Thursday at 6:30 p.m., beginning July 7 and running through Aug. 31. (Doors open at 6 p.m.)
This year’s dinner-show is officially sponsored by Evangeline-Central Credit Union.
