CATena 2019! offers a sneak peek at Central Alberta Theatre’s upcoming season

Everyone is invited to free Sept. 28 event at the Memorial Centre

Central Alberta Theatre will give the community a free sneak peek at its upcoming season at CATena 2019!

On Saturday, Sept. 28, Central Alberta Theatre will present a season-opening gala that’s open to the public.

CATena will celebrate CAT’s upcoming 49th season with an evening of festivities, prize draws, sponsors’ booths — and an address by CAT president Craig Scott.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. with tours of CAT studios.

The live entertainment portion starts at 7 p.m. at the Memorial Centre.

Five short scenes will be presented on the Memorial Centre stage to showcase the four-play dinner theatre season that kicks off Nov. 1 at the Black Knight Inn, as well as CAT’s 2020 Nickle Studio spring show.

Performances include a set by Red Deer band TEN02.

Everyone is welcome, as this is “a great chance for our volunteers, supporters and sponsors, our staff, and the public to meet and share in a great time,” say organizers.

CAT’s dinner theatre shows and spring Nickle Studio production are:

* The Love Row Boat by Albert Azzara (directed by Albert Azzara); opens at Black Knight Inn Dinner Theatre Nov. 1.

* Whole-In-One by Paul McLaughlin (directed by Glorene Ellis); opens at BKI Dinner Theatre Nov. 29.

* Willow Quartet by Joan Burrows (directed by Suzanne Hermary); opens at BKI Dinner Theatre Jan. 17.

* As Long As We Both Shall Live by Sean Grennan (directed by Trysten Luck); opens at BKI Dinner Theatre Feb. 14.

* Fully Committed by Becky Mode (directed by Tanya Ryga); opens in the Nickle Studio March 13 (this is not a dinner theatre production).
