Freezer foods from the Playbill Dining Room are now being offered as another means for the public to support the Chemainus Theatre.
A selection of items has been prepared by executive chef Nick Caulford that can be purchased and picked up to be enjoyed at home.
Soups include: mushroom tarragon, Thai chicken and carrot ginger. All are $10 for one litre that serves two.
There’s also chicken pot pies, beef bourguignon, butternut squash and sage ravioli, wild mushroom ravioli, beef lasagne, and brussel sprout and bacon casserole. Prices range from $12-$18.
And you can’t forget about desserts, with Playbill cheesecake, sticky toffee pudding and pecan pie available.
There’s already been rave reviews among those people who’ve tried the various dishes.
The items are available for pick-up from the Gallery Gift Shop Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
The theatre hasn’t been able to stage any performances since the beginning of the pandemic in March of last year.
Dinner cabarets were held briefly in the Playbill Dining Room before being shut down by provincial health orders.
The theatre has also launched a Bridge the Gap campaign that’s been well-received to help get through the extended down-time.
