“RETOUR AU FOU-FOYER” PROMISES
MAJOR MANOR MAYHEM

The cast members of the French dinner-theatre show “V’nez veiller” at the Acadian Musical Village in Abram-Village are busily rehearsing their parts for this year’s production, “Retour au fou-foyer”, written and directed by Raymond J. Arsenault. From left are Julie Arsenault, Gerald Arsenault, Kaylee Arsenault, Michael Richard and Janine Gallant.

 

The handsome and entertaining widower, Manuel, charms all the ladies (namely Hortense, the uppity old girl and Julienne, the sarcastic old biddy). When the also-charming semi-retired psychiatrist, Dr. Philippe Thibodeau temporarily moves into the seniors’ care facility to anonymously evaluate the mental health of its residents, Manuel becomes extremely jealous and sets out to discredit the newcomer.

Also, he mistakenly assumes the new guy is a vicious, psychotic killer and hopefully he will be able to get him booted out if everything goes according to his plan. Thankfully, the home’s new, ditzy recreation director Suzanne is there to try to prevent an all-out war from breaking out. But she’ll probably just fan the fire. But one thing is for certain. The audiences will have ample opportunity to laugh throughout the whole evening, especially when they’re not clapping along and stomping their feet to some lively Acadian and Canadian music at the concert that the residents of the seniors’ facility are putting on to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.

LAUGHS, MUSIC AND FOOD APLENTY PROMISED FOR “THE BELLE OF THE BALL”

Discussions are starting to heat up among the characters of “The Bell of the Ball”, this year’s English show of the V’nez veiller dinner-theatre in Abram-Village. In front, Julie Arsenault questions Gerald (Ge) Arsenault about this wig she found. In the back, Jonathan Arsenault, Louise Arsenault, Kaylee Arsenault and Christine Gallant-MacLean warm up their characters.

Martin, a man in his forties, decides to return to university so he can change careers. However, the furnished apartment he rented without seeing is completely disgusting, so he is forced to move. The only boarding house he can find at the last minute, near the university, is in the girls’ dormitory where his sister Colette resides.

Martin then turns into “Martine” in order to be able to integrate. A whole series of comic situations arise when there are love attractions, etiquette for women and relays against men. The others actors will present a whole series of obstacles or solutions to his challenges. The evening ends with an excellent music show.
