Feast Dinner Theatre
New production and new writer—Justin Shaw
Feast Dinner Theatre has announced the return of their holiday dinner theatre with a new production and writer—PEI Famous: Reindeer Games by Justin Shaw. It will run on select dates from November 17 to December 19 at Rodd Charlottetown and Brothers 2 in Summerside.
Shaw’s affinity for PEI-inspired comedy and background in theatre is what led him to be selected to write this year’s Feast Holiday Dinner Theatre production.
“I’m thrilled for this opportunity,” says Shaw. “I love writing stories about PEI, and to be able to dive in and build something fun with Sherri-Lee Pike and the Feast Dinner team was too good to pass up. I hope Islanders enjoy being in the spotlight in this fun holiday show.”
Shaw is an Ontario-based comedian and storyteller originally from Cardigan, PEI. He tours stand-up comedy with Yuk Yuks at clubs and theatres across the country. He has opened for Fortune Feimster and appeared on Mike Birbiglia’s Working It Out Comedy Show. Island audiences might remember Shaw from Popalopalots Improv Comedy and appearing in Lorne Elliot’s Culture Shock. His album Human Money is played on Sirius XM and can be heard on Apple Music and Spotify. Shaw was also the subject of the Bell Fibe TV1 show, “Tales From Island Boy,” chronicling the development of his work as a storyteller.
PEI Famous: Reindeer Games will combine laughs, a meal and music lead by Music Director Ben Aiken to create a holiday hit. Stay tuned for updates and visit feastdinnertheatres.com for tickets and more.
