Lacombe dinner theatre company looking to future with new shows

Cow Patty Theatre is planning its 2021-22 season to being in November

Cow Patti Theatre is “moo-ving” forward and planning for its 2021-22 season.

The theatre company has chosen not to continue with its current season, due to uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and current restrictions.

In a February update to patrons, Cow Patti Theatre Company said it will not be moving forward with the second remount of the its production of Lumenburg.

Deciding to officially wrap the season early has not put a damper on the theatre company’s plans for the upcoming season.

“As we take down the set and pack up the lights, we have already received licensing and put in place contracts to bring our audiences the most exciting line up of shows in our 24 year history…” the update states.

AnnaMarie Lea, producing director with the theatre, said in an email that she is very excited to bring next season’s shows to Lacombe.

The three shows scheduled for the 2021-22 season are: Sugar Road, Nov. 11-Dec. 12; On a First Name Basis, Feb. 3-Feb. 27, 2022; and Jonas and Barry, March 17-April 10, 2022.

“Our plan is to get you all booked in and then tickle your spirits with laughter, warm your imaginations with intriguing stories and fill your bellies with delicious homemade food.”

Those with credits for the 2020-21 season will be contacted shortly about their options.

Lea says she is grateful for the community and the patrons of the theatre for sticking with them during the pandemic.

“Please know how much we appreciate your support because without you we are nothing. As I have always said, you are truly the most important character in all of our shows,” Lea said.

She says the next season is one she is looking forward to, especially On a First Name Basis where she will take to the stage and star next to Norm Foster.

Tickets for the next season of Cow Patty Dinner Theatre go on sale on Canada Day, July 1.
