You are invited to join the tea party on Jan. 7 when Okanagan Screen Arts Society is showing Tea With The Dames at the Vernon Towne Cinema.

These four acting legends, and also lifelong friends, Dames Judi Dench, Eileen Atkins, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith invite us to join them for a weekend in the country as they get together for tea to reminisce and discuss their long and successful acting careers.

With many Oscars, Tonys, and Emmys among them, they are truly the most celebrated actresses of modern times.

These four great actresses talk of their humble beginnings in the theatre as they catch up with one another and share their honest opinions and views on a variety of personal subjects and thoughts including their own life challenges.

Directed by Roger Mitchell (Notting Hill) Tea With The Dames is a wonderful opportunity for us to spend time in the company of these four legends making it a very personal, candid, insightful and unpredictable experience.

The dames are a treat to hang out within this intimate and unpretentious setting, which gives us the opportunity to sit down with these incredible ladies outside of the usual stuffy talk show stages.

Showtimes are 5:15 and 7:45 p.m. A cash wine bar is on site. Enjoy a pre-show intro by resident filmmaker Matt McDowell alongside Sally Evans and Scott John as well as live music in the lobby before the early show courtesy of Les Copeland. Advance tickets are available at the Towne Cinema box office and Expressions of Time.
