La Veillée au Village
Dinner theatre is back at Abram-Village starting in July
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 11 and running through August. Showtime is 6:30 pm.
The 2023 troupe consists of fiddler Louise Arsenault, guitarist/singer Jonathan Arsenault, singer/musician Angie Arsenault, actor/musician Dawson Arsenault and actor/musician Shane Arsenault.
Brother-sister duo Albert Arsenault and Hélène Bergeron are writing and directing the show again this year and they have added Rémi Arsenault and Sylvie Toupin to their musical and artistic direction team. Together, the team has opted to continue with the same style of show that has been used in recent years—a comedy and music revue they feel is a winning formula.
An announcer will introduce the acts and present some funny commercials. There are also plans to incorporate additional video clips this year.
With the talented vocalists in this year’s show, there will be more emphasis on the vocals and harmonies. Audiences can expect some traditional fiddle tunes and instrumental pieces, and the song selection will include contemporary selections and familiar pieces of various styles.
The evening will begin with the first two dinner courses, followed by the first half (about 45 minutes) of the show. Dessert will be served, followed by the final half of the show.
Tickets must be reserved or purchased in advance either online at villagemusical.ca or at the Village musical acadien reception desk.
