Mimi, a sexy Parisian temptress, waits for her blind date to show up. When he doesn’t, she plucks a willing man from the audience to take his place. In Mimi’s hands, the date promises to be flirty, funny, sweet and maybe a little saucy. Described as “one part Tina Fey, one part Bridget Jones, and never less than totally engaging” (Calgary Herald), Blind Date is a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants fusion of clown, improvisation, theatre and social experiment.
The role of Mimi will be played by Julie Orton during matinee performances on:
Saturday, April 7,14 & 21 | Thursday, April 19
RUNNING TIME: Approximately 90 minutes, no intermission
Please note latecomers will be seated at the discretion of the House Manager
