Pembroke's Holiday Hollow offers first dinner theater

Jun 25, 2011

Here's a press release from Holiday Hollow in Pembroke.

After 20 years of family oriented Halloween entertainment and three years of Christmas and "tea tasting" shows, the George Walker family at Holiday Hollow in Pembroke has added dinner theater to their repertoire.

On Saturday, July 16, they will premiere "13 Memento Mori Lane," a comedy/mystery/farce, at their new theater, Yorkshire Hall.

Author/director Zachary Walker says that "the show begins the moment you enter the door, as the villain greets you...as you sit down do a delicious dinner, mind your belongings, and get ready for poison brandy, tangled tangos, crashing chandeliers -- and broccoli. What murder would be complete without broccoli?"

Yorkshire Hall shows are usually limited to group bookings and tour buses.

"This is a chance for the general public to get to see our elegant new hall and have a great dinner and show as well," said George Walker, senior member of the family.

But he says that this presentation is unique and future "general public" presentations will depend on response.

"We receive many requests to open our shows to local residents, and this will be a chance to see if there's enough community interest to make future offerings possible," Walker said.

The July 16 "world premiere" of "13 Memento Mori Manor" is scheduled for just one performance at this time, but will feature a "super discount price" of $19.95, which includes dinner, the show, and gratuity.

Advance reservations are required and may be made by calling 762-8160. Additional information is available at www.Yorkshire-Hall.com.
