Audience Advisory:
Please note this performance combines storytelling with the experience of tasting food.  Taste is a sensory based performance where the audience will be blindfolded. It will not be a traditional meal but rather a series of taste experiences that will be specially crafted by Chef Andrew Winfield for the performance. To add to the mystery, the tasting menu will remain a secret until all three evenings of performances are concluded. A Ghost River Theatre representative will contact you prior to this event to confirm your attendance and discuss dietary restrictions if applicable. This is an 18 + event.
