Dickens Christmas Dinner hosted by Forty-Six restaurant in Kannapolis
KANNAPOLIS — Representatives of the downtown Kannapolis restaurant Forty-Six will host the first Dickens Christmas Dinner at 6 p.m. Dec. 9. The dinner theater is billed for all ages.
“We’re hoping to create a new Christmas tradition here in Kannapolis,” said Stevi Rosenthal, restaurant manager at Forty-Six.
The menu, created by culinary team member Rob Faggart, features a nine-course Christmas meal straight out of “A Christmas Carol,” complete with mincemeat pies and plum pudding. While guests are enjoying the food and drink, The Victorian Voices of Salisbury will keep the evening merry and bright with carols and songs.
The lord of the manor, played by Executive Chef John Blumreich, will regale adults and children with a dramatic reading of the favorite holiday ghost story from a script adapted by Audie Award-winning radio performer, dramatist and educator Anthony Palermo.
“Creating an event like this has been a dream of mine for several years,” said Faggart, an alumnus of the Central Piedmont Community College culinary program. “It started with an idea for a dinner party and became a full-blown dinner theater production with actors and costumes. It’s something new for the restaurant and the community, and we think foodies, families and everyone in between will love it.”
Tickets are on sale and must be purchased in advance. They are available at Forty-Six, 101 West Ave., Kannapolis, and online at http://dickenschristmasdinner.
