Dinner theatre returns to Oak Bay Beach Hotel

Oak Bay Beach Hotel hosts eight-month run of fun

The season looks savoury at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel this year, as the hotel has unveiled its 2013-2014 dinner theatre season.

The theatrical season opened on Sept. 13 and runs with four different shows until April. The performances will be presented in the David Foster Foundation Theatre, all paired with themed three-course meals.

Tickets are $89 per person and include the performance and dinner. Season tickets are also available.

A portion of every ticket goes to the David Foster Foundation, helping Canadian families of children awaiting major organ transplants, as part of the hotel’s 10-year $2 million commitment to the foundation.

For those looking for more, stay tuned for the Jan. 5 season four premiere of Downton Abbey, which will also be presented in the theatre.

The line-up:

A Night at the Savoy – September and October.

A Night at the Savoy takes guests back to 1944 for a visit to the Savoy ballroom and performance hall in New York City, celebrating the music and performers of the swing, show and big-band era. The show features the musical sounds of Victoria’s Dock Side Drive alongside radio personality Barry Bowman. Guests will be ushered into a live radio broadcast, and entertained by the swinging sounds of Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, The Andrew Sisters, Nat King Cole and more.

It’s Christmas – November and December.

Celebrate the season with It’s Christmas, a sparkling musical holiday revue featuring historic stories and heart warming music that is sure to fill guests with the spirit of the season. It’s Christmas is written and produced by Matthew Howe, and features some of Victoria’s brightest rising stars.

Time Benders – January and February.

Tom Watson’s Time Benders has been bringing audiences to their feet for decades, featuring cameo performances from Tina Turner, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones and more. The Oak Bay Beach Hotel has put in a special request for Watson himself to take centre stage once again, and he will be there. Guests will laugh and dance to the antics of this talented group of performers.

Tribute to Nashville – March and April.

A unique opportunity to bring a different Nashville star to the David Foster Foundation Theatre stage every weekend will bring audiences a little taste of what it’s like to live, work and play in the recording capital of the world. Buddy Greene himself has selected some of Nashville’s most renowned recording artists to join him on stage. Guests will feel as though they were transported to Nashville for a few hours and witness the incredible impact that city’s recording industry has had on cultures around the world. Tribute to Nashville is the first in what is hoped to be many years of spring theatre seasons featuring artists that are living the dream and  reaching for stardom.
