R.J. Haney Heritage Village is celebrating 22 years of Villains and Vittles Dinner Theatre Productions.

This season they are proud to present The Everlasting Railways Blues.

The story is about the coming of the railroad to Western Canada, a historical event that has become legendary.

Guests will hop aboard C.P.R. Parlour Car 2426 and take a trip through that exciting time.

The trip will be guided by Haney’s amazing and talented local actors – Alaura Bibby, Joy Peters, Emilyn Sim and David Wray,  says Haney Heritage Village manager Susan Mackie.

This season’s cast will entertain visitors with their songs and dances while sharing the real stories behind some of the legends.

Prospectors are warned to keep their gold nuggets in their socks.

“Joining us for his sixth successful season as writer and director is local playwright, Peter Blacklock,” Mackie says, pointing out The Everlasting Railway Blues is a family-oriented production sure to charm and entertain audiences of all ages. “Peter is known for his original musical scores and humorous storytelling while sharing the history of the Salmon Arm area.”

Opening night is Wednesday, July 1, with shows every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evening in July and August. There will be a special matinee performance on Thursday, Aug. 20. Check in starts at 5 p.m.

“Come and enjoy a home-cooked dinner with all the pioneer fixings served from Marjorie’s Tea Room,” says Mackie.  “Dessert follows the play with homemade rhubarb crisp and ice cream.”

Reservations are a must. Admission to Haney’s Villain and Vittles Dinner Theatre is $25 for adults, $22 for seniors, $14 for children ages five to thirteen and free for children four and under.

For more information call 250-832-5243, visit the R.J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum website at www.salmonarmmuseum.org, or like them at facebook.com/Haneyheritage.

“This is a not-to-be-missed highlight of Salmon Arm’s summer entertainment,” says Mackie.
