A fun filled night of musical comedy! Boo the Villain and Cheer the Hero! Come join us for an evening that begins with our three course meal and the Melodrama immediately following (audience participation is strongly encouraged). After the melodrama, a foot-stomping sing-along and vaudeville style olio full of song, dance and comedy continues the fun throughout the evening!

We saw the play "Jenny Spy Catcher" which was a very charming little production. My kids and I had a great time cheering on the hero and booing the villain. The biggest issue and regret was the food. I would not suggest eating there. The...More

While away on vacation you eat out a lot. The food here was like home cooking. It was the best food we had all vacation. The service was amazing and the show was a lot of fun. I would recommend this to everyone!
