A key chapter in the history of our Newfoundland women deals with the thousands of young girls who worked out "in service". This year's Southern Shore Dinner Theatre offering "At Your Service" is a tribute to all the womenfolk who labored in and often ran the households of the more affluent. Welcome to Ryan's boarding...er...guest home where the proprietress, Mrs. Ryan, has her hands full trying to mold young Frances O'Brien from Cabbage Cove into a proper servant girl. Meet the other colorful characters who aid and abet Frances as she stumbles through her daily domestic duties.
