39th Feast Dinner Theatre 

Select dates
Brother's 2 in Summerside & Rodd Charlottetown

Marli Trecartin does some research in preparation for her role in Shucked.Under the spotlight of a PEI stage, competitors square off with knives in their hands and rugged shellfish on their trays. They’ll have mere seconds to twist and pop open each stubborn mollusc and sever the plump salty meat from the shell.

This summer, Feast Dinner Theatres will deliver all of the drama you expect from the oyster-shucking stage. But with a comedic cast and a script from Mike Allison, Feast veteran and head writer for This Hour Has 22 Minutes, expect this competition to shell out as much fun as a seafood festival. Allison recalls his past performances in Feast to inspire him as he writes comedic storylines. “I know how much fun it can be.”

Shucked takes audiences to the fictional World Series of Oyster Shucking—an iconic event celebrating the Island’s world-famous oysters. Audiences savour the thrill of dramatized “shuck offs,” laugh and chat with quirky characters, dine on a veritable feast, and sing along to hits performed by top Maritime talents.

Artistic director Sherri-Lee Darrach says the performances stay sharp because producer Don Groom wants to bring something even better to the stage every year. “Creatively, Don is always asking for the next level,” Darrach explains.

Shucked incorporates a mix of veteran and new performers, and a new musical director in Andrew Waite, known for his performances with Andrew Waite & The Firm. Cast veterans also include Marli Trecartin, who has returned for the adventure of recreating herself in a dinner theatre and entertaining audiences in the process. 

Shucked is produced by Don Groom of White Rose Entertainment. 

This summer’s menu features salad, homemade bread, PEI mussels, salmon or chicken entrée, and dessert.

Performances open June 23, at Summerside’s Brothers 2 and June 28, at Rodd Charlottetown, and then run Tuesdays to Saturdays for the summer.
