What started in May as a Word file being exchanged by a couple newspaper editors working for the Alaska Highway News and your Dawson Creek Mirror, becomes reality next week as the immersive dinner theatre and live music experience COLOSSEUM opens on Valentine’s Day in Fort St. John. The show, billed as 'an experience', features actors, producers, musicians, and directors from Dawson Creek, Pouce Coupe, Taylor, and the Energetic City, FSJ.

The evening is billed as a meal-based, interactive and “surround sound” show in terms of performance. Tickets for the V-Day opening night are nearly sold out.

“We are getting down to individual seats for that evening and tickets are moving for our Feb 24 and 25 evening as well,” says director and producer Matt Preprost, AHN managing editor.  

Both producer Preprost and Rob Brown have been flabbergasted by the community support. 

“We have had unsolicited offers to help and partner with community groups, non-profits, businesses, and individuals from throughout the Peace region,” says Brown down at the Dawson Creek Mirror.

“It is refreshing.”

On the COLOSSEUM reservation list for the show include; a Wall Street broker, a newspaper critic, and two hoodlums looking for their cut of owner Lou Largo’s family business. As demands pile up, Largo must also juggle his books and business. The production is billed as an adult crime drama.

Hit the Pomeroy Hotel this Valentine’s Day and an extended run on February 24 and 25 for an explosive and immersive dinner theatre experience featuring six stages of sizzling drama. For more information, check out
