OUR BOX OFFICE WILL REOPEN OCTOBER 12TH!

During this closure we were able to get a few projects done that we would ordinarily not have time to complete. We repainted the entire main floor of the building including the lobby, dining room, restrooms and kitchen. We refinished our original wood floors, and we renovated the guest restrooms with new ceilings, new lighting and new hardware, along with some fixes due to wear and tear from our first 7 seasons. We updated the basement to make our actors more comfortable as they prepare to take the stage and between their onstage exits and entrances. Plus, there are a few other projects that we hope to finish prior to your return. We'll keep you posted on those as they're completed.

 

Perhaps the biggest change though, is the elimination of our buffet. In the interest of health and safety, we've decided to cut down on our guests huddling together to wait in long lines for food that often stretch around the building and crowd tables. We recognize that having nearly 100 people breathing on your fried chicken and sharing serving utensils is less than desirable. The elimination of our buffet and long lines will also allow us to make a bit more room available between our tables.

 

"Wait! Are you saying there's no more chicken???"

 

Noooooo, that is NOT what we're saying!

 

When you arrive at your table, your server will bring your drinks, plus the salad and bread that will kick off your meal. Our famous Dio fried chicken dinner will be generously portioned and individually plated in our kitchen, along with assorted sides that will change with each production. The plating process will be overseen by our serve-safe certified, fully vaccinated staff. Meals will then be delivered to your table by one of the talented actors who will be serving you (and starring in the show). Vegetarian and gluten free options will still be available to guests who pre-order them through our box office. As always, we'll be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth with dessert, served at intermission.

 

We're confident that these modifications to our dinner service will be a welcome new experience for our guests. We'll do the heavy lifting while you relax and enjoy the company of friends and family at your table!

 

What will stay the same?

And of course, our amazing cast and creative team members will continue to work hard to create fantastic plays and musicals that will provide your family and friends with unforgettable entertainment that you'll remember long after you've left the theater! We've heard from so so many of our actors and designers throughout this long closure, that what they miss most of all is being on stage, hearing the audience laugh and applaud and cheer. And we can't wait to get back to creating those moments for them, and for you, because we know you've missed them too.

LAUGH OUT LOUD THIS WINTER WITH A MUSICAL!

Spend the Holiday time with us this year! Tickets will go on sale to the general public October 12th!
