Christmas Dinner Theatre

The Pembina Hillbillies Ride Again

To celebrate their 10th anniversary of Christmas Dinner Theatres, Candlewick Players return to the stage with a sequel to their initial production of "The Pembina Hillbillies". Join with them as they bring the antics of this Hillbilly family who made it rich and are now living "high on the hog" in the big City!

Candlewick Player's Dinner Theatre involves local actors whose desire is to bring the medicine of laughter to their audiences. With a full course meal prepared by local restaurants/caterers, the entertainment is provided not only during the three act drama, but also round the tables as actors come and join the audience during the meal for some clean fun. With both scripted scenes and lots of comedy improv, the actors try to warm the heart with laughter.


This theatre event is open for bookings for both public and corporate bookings.

Corporate Bookings

Recognizing that numbers can change between the time of booking and the actual performance, we ask businesses to reserve a realistic number for their evening and then a week prior to the performance to confirm final reservation numbers. This is to allow for better planning and coordination. Tickets are non-refundable after this point.

An invoice will be sent to the businesses with an expectation of 1/2 of the reservation be paid as a downpayment to hold reservations with the remainder due upon the date of the performance. If there are reservation adjustments, that will be applied to the final payment.

Proceeds from the production, after all expenses, will be divided between local youth and children's interests/charities.
