Valentine’s weekend dinner theater in Spring Valley


Mon, Feb 9th, 2015
Posted in Spring Valley Arts & Culture

Brave Community Theater of Spring Valley is offering a special treat this weekend, titled “Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating and Marriage”. The play is directed by Debi Neville, founder of Brave Community Theater, who states, “This is our midwinter offering, for anyone who’s looking for something fun and different. It’s a new show to our area, and it’s a very simple premise. The two main characters have a relationship talk show… it’s 90 minutes of fast-paced fun!” She says the actors (Laurie Helmers and Jeff Thauwald, both of whom are BCT veterans) have great chemistry together, and they really bring the play to life. She quips that the script is “just a little naughty, but nothing that would shock anyone over sixteen years old!”

Debi also explained that the meal is something special, too. “We’re using the fancy linen tablecloths and goblets, and dining by candlelight. It’s really a great value, and we expect people from a 30 or 40 mile radius to attend.” The menu is catered by Some Like it Hot Catering (Suzanne Gardner and Steph Thouin), and includes Mandarin Orange Pork Loin with Fresh Herbs, Bacon-wrapped Chicken with Spinach and Parmesan, Wild Rice Pilaf, Balsamic Green Beans, Mixed Greens with Champagne Vinaigrette, and a dessert buffet.

Debi says there will be some audience participation, but explains that doesn’t mean everyone has to be involved. She said, “Just a few willing participants will be involved, and their part will be very brief.” This hilarious variety show will be playing on three consecutive nights, February 12-14. The February 12 performance (starting at 7 p.m.) does not include dinner; tickets for this performance are $12 in advance or $14.50 at the door.

The performances on February 13 and 14 include dinner; tickets are $29, and must be purchased or ordered by February 10. These performances include a cash bar starting at 5:30, with dinner and the play beginning at 6:30. Tickets can be purchased in Spring Valley at Sunshine Foods, Chateau de Chic, or Johnny Ringo’s. Tickets can also be ordered online, via the Brave Community Theater website. All three performances will be at the Spring Valley Community Center, 200 S Broadway.

Brave Community Theater has been in operation for over 40 years, making it one of the oldest self-supporting community theaters in Minnesota. Debi explains, “What this means is that we rely strictly on the .....
