Tony 'n Tina's wedding to take place in Whistler By Oona Woods Live dinner theatre in the form of the hit-show Tony ’n Tina's Wedding will be taking place in Whistler on Sept. 12 and 13. Presented by the Community Arts Council and the Chateau Whistler, the interactive play turns the audience into guests at a traditional Italian wedding. Theatre-goers are asked to arrive dressed up in wedding attire and you will attend the church service before joining the cast at the reception. Tony ’n Tina's wedding has been playing from New York to Vancouver for the last three years. Reviews have labelled it "Flat out fun," "Full of invention, enthusiasm and high spirit!" and "A hugely entertaining event." At 6 p.m. you arrive with your invitation (ticket) and you'll be escorted to your seat. Tina walks down the aisle at 6:30 p.m. and following the exchange of vows guests will be taken up to the Woodlands Terrace where the reception will be held in a tent. When it plays in Vancouver the show starts off at a St. Andrew's Wesley Church and moves to a restaurant for the party. In Whistler it will all be contained within the Chateau, with catering on site. The wedding proceeds with a host of crazy Italian characters, juicy family secrets, singing, dancing and eating. The theatre set-up allows audience members to join in as much or as little as they want to. Tamsin Miller from the arts council says people are already calling it Whistler's social event of the season. She says the whole night is full of intrigue. "See them marry, see them fight, see them make up. Will the broody ex-boyfriend show up? What will happen if he does? How can you help? Dancing, singing, waving your napkin in the air and having fun are all obligatory." Ticket prices are $60 per person and includes the show and dinner. They are for sale at the Whistler and Pemberton Libraries and at the concierge desk of the Chateau Whistler. The Chateau has made the evening a fund-raiser and all profits will go towards helping the arts council further their goals of fostering the written, performing arts within the community.
