Time for ‘Hysterical’ history

The Hysterical Historicals puts Enderby and the Shuswap’s history on stage

Contributed

The Hysterical Historicals is a fast and musical romp through Enderby’s and the Shuswap’s last 150 years.

It’s the brainchild of local singer/songwriter/actor Linzy Lunkwist and an intrepid band of volunteers. And the show comes with great food as well as great music and laughs.

This is the 12th of Lunkwist’s original productions, this time in honour of Canada’s Sesquicentennial. The show features lots of local history including the Kingfisher Kitchen band, a sort of grandmotherly “jug band,” who played kitchen implements to delight local audiences back in the day.

May 5 and 6 are dinner theatres, with a choice of salmon or chicken pot pie, salad and bannock, with a “Slice O’ Heaven” for dessert. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., dinner is at 6 p.m. The show starts at 7 p.m. sharp. May 7 is dessert theatre, with dessert at 2 p.m. and the show at 2:30. Dinner and the show is $20; dessert and show is $12. Or just come for the show, for $10.

Experience it all at Saint Andrew’s United Church, 1110 Belvedere St., Enderby. (An encore presentation — without the food — takes place at Splatsin Center the afternoon of July 1.) All box office receipts go to MacKenzie Camp for kids who couldn’t otherwise afford to go to camp.

It’s a great cause, lots of fun – and it’s even better when you bring a friend! If you’re coming for dinner or dessert, call for reservations: 250-306-9556.
