Jesters Dinner Theatre’s all-teen production of the Tony Award–winning musical Into the Woods follows a baker and his wife as they encounter a motley cast of companions and obstacles on their quest to have a child. Lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim accompany the intertwining of storylines and faces familiar from the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, such as "Little Red Riding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," "Cinderella," and "Snow White and Jimmy Carter Play Flag Football." Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m., and the curtain rises at 7 p.m.

Since forming in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have continued to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2014 tour, a rotating roster of Globetrotter favorites—including three female players—takes to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard TNT sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker Quake, whose high jump once cleared 7 feet, cruelly dashing his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Globetrotters might also present a study in contrasts with 5-foot-2 Too Tall and 7-foot-4 Stretch, the team’s tallest member.
During each Globetrotters game, youngsters laugh along and witness the jovial jocks performing classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti. To infuse their visits with an extra shot of unpredictability, the Globetrotters also let fans in each city vote on special rules for every game; past rules have included the use of a four-point shot and the installation of a penalty box. Over the years, similar antics have followed the Globetrotters around the world, including to 122 countries and territories and all six continents on which basketballs grow naturally. The Globetrotters’ extensive travels haven’t gone unnoticed: they’re one of the few teams to earn a spot in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport.
We are a high-end dinner theater...one stop shopping for date night. A $6 million dollar facility built from the ground up to be a dinner theater, we present Broadway musicals and a great meal all in a very luxurious setting.
Completed in 2010, Midtown Arts Center, formerly Carousel Dinner Theatre, was converted from a movie theater to a cultural and performing arts center, where an array of actors and entertainers regale audiences in the year-round murder mystery dinner show, The Dinner Detective, as well as intimate performances of Broadway hits such as The Sound of Music and the upcoming Shrek the Musical. Midtown Arts Center’s four venues accommodate events of all stripes: the Ballroom and Grand Hall both welcome private and corporate events, the Dinner Theatre grants enough elbow room to dig into hearty dinners from its menu, and Theatre One's Young Audience Series excites youngsters with children’s shows and promises to abolish all pop quizzes.
