I just love this character. As Alice, I can wander about asking children if they have seen my rabbit. It’s not long before one of them tosses on those ears and I get to play hide and go stilt walk. So much fun!!

Medieval Dinner Theatre Show at the Edmonton Celtic Hall

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Articles for Performers, Random Fun 6 Comments


As usual, Christmas was crazy. For us entertainers, the holidays are never the normal sort of insanity the rest of the world experiences; with all the stress about gifts, family, and turkey dinners, no. Christmas season is about doing as many gigs as possible without losing one’s mind.

This year proved to be a lot more fun than I expected since I was asked to be part of a dinner theatre production in Edmonton, Fridays and Saturdays for 4 weekends in December.

Our cast was a team of brilliant and talented variety arts performers and improvers. I can’t tell you how incredibly fun it was to play together in this show. I already miss my little circus family but there are rumours that the run might continue in 2013. Here’s hoping.

It really is an amazing show perfect for any family for office party and very reasonably priced for what it included. For more information and to get your tickets check out their website at
