A local theatre company is cooking up something new this summer with a performance to entertain diners at a Shrewsbury Restaurant. Vested Interest are working with Origins Restaurant at Shrewsbury College, where they are also the theatre company in residence working alongside Performing Arts students, to provide an exciting dining experience that will engage more than just the taste buds!

The show ‘Sauce’ has been written and Directed by company owner, Vicki Duckett. Performing Arts students will showcase their talents alongside members of Vested Interest whilst the Origins team of chef and students serve up a delicious four course meal.  

“Anyone who has dined at Origins Restaurant will know the food is amazing and they host events with a difference. i was struck by the potential of the large restaurant area and windows looking directly into the kitchen where diners can see the chefs preparing their food. Inspiration soon followed and characters and scenarios began to emerge. I was thrilled when Origins embraced my idea of combining theatre with food!” said Vicki.

Restaurant Manager, Ted Coxon is working with Vested Interest to make this evening an experience diners will not forget. “This is unlike anything we have done before. It's exciting to see how diners will react to a performance happening while they eat just a few feet from them.

“This type of collaboration is new for the restaurant and diners can enjoy a four course meal and theatre performance all for just £25!” he said.

'Sauce' will be performed at 7pm on Thursday, June 26. The timing couldn't be more apt as just a few days later The Quarry will play host to the Shrewsbury Food Festival.

To book tickets for 'Sauce' call Origins Restaurant 01743 342611. If you'd like to know more information about this performance or the type of work Vested Interest do, get in touch or follow the link provided.
