About Us:

We say that our place is "the most fun you can have in a Dallas theatre," and we constantly strive to live up to that claim.  Professional quality, locally produced theatrical shows are blended with good food, drink, and a friendly, casual atmosphere.  A place where you can relax while enjoying food, fun, friends, and the thrill of a live theatrical performance in an intimate setting where there isn't a bad seat in the house (okay, okay - maybe a few bad seats).  We seat up to 145 at table, bar, and booth seating, which is assigned on an as-you-arrive basis.  Special consideration is given to seat larger groups together, and for patrons with special physical needs.

Comedies, Melodramas, Musicals, and an occasional Drama thrown in just to keep us legitimate. We always try to select shows with a high audience entertainment factor so that you feel better when you leave than you did when you came in. Our madcap, popcorn-throwing melodramas are favorites for audiences with our unique style spoofing your favorite heroes, villains and monsters. Most of our shows are aimed at family audiences, but we'll be the first to let you know when a show contains anything that might be objectionable for children. Our Late Night shows, on Friday and Saturday, are usually a little raunchier, but hey your kids shouldn't be out that late anyhow.

Kind of a fun and weird theater. Shows go all the time. Some good some not so good. They have good food and nice staff. The place looks like it could use some TLC and repairs in places. For the most part, we have enjoyed going with friends. Prices are lower then you might think. Parking is good and esy to get in and out back onto main roads and freeways.

So much fun, great atmosphere! We arrived early, around 6:20, to get in line and get the best seats. Show actually started at 8:00, but starting at 6:30, you can get seated, order dinner, and sit and chat with friends. Staff are super friendly and have lots of personality. Our waitress checked on us constantly to make sure all was well. Food was ok, nothing spectacular, but the pocket sandwich was fun. The show was hilarious and very participatory, you sing along, boo, holler, hiss, and toss popcorn. It was my first time, but I'll definitely be back. I've lived in the Dallas area for some time and can't believe I'd never heard of the place.

I took my wife here for a date last night and this was one of the funnest nights out we've had! We saw the Hercules performance and had a blast throwing popcorn at the actors. The show was hilarious and the actors were great! We will absolutely be making this a more frequent date night. 5 stars isn't enough!

The food and play are pretty goid. Funny cones to mind. But, there is not a full bar. Only beer and wine. Would love to BYOB.

Loved this place! First time going last night and was very pleased. The service was nice, the actors did a wonderful job and the food &sangria we're good! I loved that it looked small from the outside, but opened up and had so much character on the inside! Wish there were more bathroom stalls, but other than that, will be back again!
