Fighting over the Oscar

Fighting over the Oscar

By: Diva Jenna Ujiye

I have not watched the Academy Awards in about 6 years, as I haven’t had cable and I usually spend my Sunday evenings at home! This year my friend Kate Johnston, who is the manager of the Livery in Goderich, mentioned to me that there was a Livery fundraiser Oscar Night at the Parkhouse in Goderich and that it was a formal dress-up night. If you haven’t noticed, I hate to miss out on getting dressed up, so I told her I would be there!Oscar party decor at the Parkhouse in GoderichOscar party decor at the Parkhouse in Goderich

I realized that all I had for formal wear were my prom dresses and a couple of other dresses that were very tight. So I went with the larger of the tight dresses! I arrived at the Parkhouse at around 7:30 and our Hosts Ben Scholton and Ian Doyle had already started the evening commentary. I really felt like a star myself! The ticket price of $15.00 included a glass of sparkling wine, tons of door prizes and ½ price appetizers. I hadn’t had dinner, so I ordered a BLTC (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Cheese) sandwhich… I know it doesn’t sound glamourous, but it sure hit the spot for me!

We were each given ballots to put our votes in on all of the awards. I had seen 4 of the movies, so I had to do some “educated” guesses. There were prizes for best dressed, male and female and of course a prize was given to the person who scored highest on the awards list. The awards were fun, but I would have to say my favourite part was the photo booth. As you can see from the pictures we had a lot of fun! I hope the Livery has more entertaining nights such as these and it was great to spend the night with friends at the Parkhouse!

The Livery hosts the Goderich Little Theatre, The Livery Film Fest and Live! at the Livery. If you are looking to see a great theatre production, one is starting on March 15. I’ll Be Back Back Before Midnight” Written by Peter Colley and Directed by Nina Reynolds, sounds to me like it is going to be a great murder mystery show!
