The Cemetery Club
Lunch & Show
Great Northern Theatre Company – The Great Blue Heron – Cold Spring
February 23, 2020
Hop on board as we join a cast of characters in the Great Northern Theatre Company’s February production of “The Cemetery Club”, a comedy dinner theater production at the Great Blue Heron in Cold Spring. Join Laura and Gary Block on Sunday, February 23rd. This community theater group has been active in central Minnesota since 1992. We’ll leave Little Falls at 11:15a.m. on a comfortable Andy’s Charter Service motor coach from the northeast corner of the Wal-Mart parking lot and also picking up in Royalton, Rice, St. Cloud or anywhere else along our route. The Sunday matinee begins with a lunch and a choice of entrees. The exact final menu is still being finalized by the chef, but the choices will be beef brisket or chicken. There will also be a vegetarian option. This will be a full meal with potatoes, vegetable, roll, dessert and coffee. Soft drinks and alcoholic beverages are on your own. Please make your meal choice when you are signing up. This hilarious show begins at 2:00. Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husband’s graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life; Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun; and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife’s grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt-stricken when this nearly breaks Ida heart. The Broadway production starred Eileen Heckart as Lucille. It was made into a film, starring Ellen Burstyn, Dianne Ladd and Olympia Dukkakis. The Washington Journal Newspapers called the show “very touching and humorous. An afternoon of pure pleasure that will make you glad you went to the theater. This will be a fun matinee to attend and a chance to enjoy the company of other people from our area. We’ll return to Little Falls around 6:00. Give us a call and sign up today.
