Melvin Goes To Dinner – Live at the Paramount August 9, 10, 11


Melvin goes to dinnerTHUNDER BAY – Filthy, funny, alienated, and utterly about something without being the slightest bit pretentious, NB FILMS legacy are proud to bring to the stage “Melvin Goes To Dinner”.

“Melvin Goes To Dinner” is a brisk, loose talkfest, dinner-for-four comedy that’s smart, real and entirely enjoyable. Melvin (Derek Wall) goes to dinner with three almost complete strangers linked by casual friendships; his old friend he hasn’t seen in awhile Joey (Steven Gothard), Joey’s old business school buddy Alex (Nicole Anthony), and Alex’s pal Sarah (Meesha Reilly) whom she ran into right outside the restaurant and invited in.

The frequently funny, but also heartfelt conversation goes from dating to sex, to religion, to fetishes, to ghosts and everything else in between. Their self-revelatory banter takes the comedy on some wicked turns as the evening progresses and the empty wine bottles multiply.

The characters seem like old friends you haven’t seen in awhile, or new friends you want to see more often.

An alternative to what is normally offered, NB FILMS legacy is committed to bringing a new brand of much-needed professional theatre to Thunder Bay each summer, continuing from its record breaking success of “True Directions” last year.

“Theatre for those who think they hate theatre, and even BETTER for those who love it.”

Directed & Produced by Andrew Paulsen. Written by Michael Blieden.
Starring: Meesha Reilly, Derek Wall, Steven Gothard, Nicole Anthony, and Holly Wyder.

MELVIN GOES TO DINNER RUNS August 9, 10, 11 at 8:00pm at The Paramount Theatre.

Tickets are $10 available at the Paramount Theatre, High Tide Tattoo Parlour, The Growing Season, and Steepers.
