NEW GLASGOW - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pictou County expects a sellout performance again this year with their collaborative presentation with the performers of Grafton Street Dinner Theatre.
This year’s performance, Viva Las Vegas, will feature Christmastime hits by musicians like Wayne Newton, Elvis, Cher, the Rat Pack, Celine Dion – among many others.
A media release from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pictou County stated that Grafton Street is well known across the Maritimes for the musical and acting talent of its members.
“The music will keep you hopping and the meal from Summer Street will satisfy your tastebuds,” reads the release.
Big Brothers Big Sisters executive director Margie Grant-Walsh said it has become a tradition for Grafton Street to visit in November – she added that the event has kept people coming out for over 15 years.
“Most of those are repeat customers, as they know it will be a stellar performance,” said Grant-Walsh. “Many staff groups make it their Christmas party. This is one of the fundraisers we rely on the public for their support.”
This year’s performance is unique, because it will mark the first year Grafton Street does a holiday celebration through its performance.
“We are so excited to be able to have a holiday performance this year. It’s almost time to get with the season, and Grafton Street always does a fabulous job,” said Grant-Walsh. “I couldn’t be more pleased with the performers.
Another attraction that night will be the designer handbag auction – an opportunity for a bit of pre-emptive Christmas shopping.
“We will have some nice pieces, but folks should get their tickets early, as we know they will sell quickly,” said Grant-Walsh. “We will also have our designer bags like Coach, Kenneth Cole, Nine West, and we will also be offering some celebrity handbags – some celebrities that have already committed are Susan Aglukark, and Bette MacDonald. There may even be a few surprises.”
When it’s going on: Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.
Where it’s happening: Summer Street Industries.
Tickets cost: $57.50 for reserved seating – which includes performance, meal, dessert and a glass of wine. Tickets can be purchased at the Big Brothers Big Sisters Office at 74 Stellarton Road.
