Mother-son dinner theatre delivers the laughs

More than 400 moms, “special moms” and sons got together to share an evening of fun and laughter at the Arts Booster Club’s third annual mother-son dinner theatre on March 8.

The evening was anchored by a hilarious performance by Greg Eckler ’87, a multiple winner of the Canadian Screen Award and writer for the Rick Mercer Report. He was joined by four comedians who’ve performed all over Canada: Tim Steeves, Fraser Young, Jeff Tseng and Rick Currie. They kept the audience laughing all night long.

The show, called “Comedy Digest: Jokes while you Digest,” was performed in Laidlaw Hall and created specially for the evening. It included jokes about mothers, sons, relationships and so much more.

Principal McKinney offered some heartfelt words about mothers and sons before the show and everyone was treated to a delicious buffet dinner catered by Black Camel gourmet sandwiches (at the boys' request). People filled their plates multiple times, sampling all offerings from this popular spot.

It was a special evening as moms from as far away as Hong Kong and Texas came to attend with their sons. Boarders were accompanied by “special” faculty moms and Upper School moms and boys all shared the evening together in this wonderful community event.

And when the night concluded, moms took home a lovely photo with their son. The boys received a candy treat. It was a sweet ending to this incredible night where everyone left with smiles on their faces.
