La Veillée au Village
French dinner theatre
Village musical acadien will present the 2023 edition of La Veillée au Village dinner theatre in Abram-Village this summer. The show features comedy, music, singing, dancing and food, and will be presented in French every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday beginning July 13, running through August. Showtime is 6:30 pm. The 2023 troupe includes Louise Arsenault, Jonathan Arsenault, Angie Arsenault, Dawson Arsenault and Shane Arsenault. Brother-sister duo Albert Arsenault and Hélène Bergeron wrote the show and are directing again this year. They have added Rémi Arsenault and Sylvie Toupin to their musical and artistic direction team. The comedy and music revue formula will feature an announcer who will introduce the acts and present some funny commercials. Additional video clips will be incorporated, and there will be more emphasis on the vocals and harmonies this year. Audiences can expect some traditional fiddle tunes and instrumental pieces, and a song selection that includes contemporary selections and familiar pieces of various styles. The evening begins with two dinner courses, followed by the first half of the show. Dessert will be served, followed by the final half of the show. Tickets must be reserved or purchased in advance at villagemusical.ca or at the Village musical acadien reception desk.
