Dancing Sky Theatre – Meacham

It’s a chance for the whole family to head out to the theatre for a few laughs and a delicious meal. Dancing Sky Theatre returns to the stage for Farmer Joe and the Money Trees. This is a show that combines the magic of music, satire and puppetry to tell the story of Jack and his long-suffering mother the Widow Spriggins. Jack is trying to help his mother save the family farm and also outwit the town slickster Monty St. Orange. These shows have become a holiday favourite out at Dancing Sky and to celebrate the theatre’s 20th anniversary, they’ve brought back many of the original cast from its 2004 production. Tickets are available for the meal and show at $56.50 or just the show at $30.
