Cakeballs and goofballs all part of Dessert Theatre 2012

For three evenings in a row, Harbour Theatre Society presented Dessert Theatre at the Tom Rooney Playhouse.



For three evenings in a row, Harbour Theatre Society presented Dessert Theatre at the Tom Rooney Playhouse, where crowds of people gathered for entertainment and delicious baked goods.

Dessert Theatre was set up similar to Saturday Night Live, jumping around from a host, musical guest, and side-splitting skits parodying Prince Rupert politics, people and current events.

Rudy Kelly, Chris Armstrong, Brian Payne and Stephen Huddlestone wrote the material for the skits, with Kelly also hosting the evening of laughs and delicious treats. Dessert Theatre also satisfied audiences with the musical stylings of Mermaid Café, consisting of Jewel Jerstad, Patty Foreman and Lonni Bryant.

Chris Armstrong directed and performed along with cast members George T. Baker, Noah Ferland, Treena Decker, Stephen Huddlestone, Tristen Wybo, Gabe Jardim, Jewel Jerstad, Rich Jerstad, Georgia Riddel, Angelica Jesser, and Patrick Witwicki, who was making his Harbour Theatre debut.

Some of the highlights of the show include satires of a local City Council meeting and news broadcast, as well as a Prince Rupert parody of the Dating Game.
