Why have dinner before the theater when you can have it with the theater? Celebrations Dinner theater offers the excellent combination of dinner and entertainment. The menu is limited, but the food on offer is tasty (especially the chicken dishes) and plentiful. The plays are of high quality, so patrons need not worry that the theater is simply a gimmick. This space is great place to entertain business clients and great for a date, as there are limited opportunities for awkward lulls in conversation. Ticket prices included with dinner cost and the discounted rates for seniors and students are applicable only on Wednesday.
