We are THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE IN A DALLAS THEATER and have been since 1980. Well known for our popcorn tossing melodramas, with comedies, music, and improv comedy at great prices.

Really enjoyed this place. Food is so-so but you go there for the atmosphere and the farce. It was so much fun throwing popcorn at the actors and booing and hissing at the villain. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would love to go back next...More

As the name implies, the Pocket Sandwich Theater is a cozy venue with every seat close to the stage. There is no better way to see a band perform or a melodrama. There is food and bar service for enjoying. The friendly waiters are bursting...More

We really enjoyed the two shows we saw at this little dinner theater. My daughter went back two more times to see one of the shows again with friends. The food is simple, but tasty enough and reasonably priced. The acting isn't like you are...More
