Christmas Dinner Theatre

Get Schmart

get schmart poster

Dr. Elias, professor emeritus with the MSTUU, and his capable assistant have just completed an invention which will change humanity as we know it... at least humanity in southern Manitoba (... or perhaps Morden and Winkler... or maybe just Dave Hildebrandt's back yard.) Yet, if their invention falls into the hands of KAOS, then terror will reign across the world... especially when they set their sights on the tiny Kingdom of Reinfeld.

Not to worry, Agents of Kontrol are already on the scene. Will the fearless Maxwell Schmart be able to thward the efforts of KAOS? Only with the help of his trusty side-kick and band of agents... then again, possibly singlehandedly.

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, it is our goal 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 put towards efforts to develop opportunities for youth in drama and the arts in association with Belize Camping Experience.
