Today’s side deal reimagines a holiday classic and feeds you a seven-course meal, too: for $42, you get admission to Fezziwig’s Feast at Actors Theater of Minnesota (a $79.50 value, including the facility fee). Your Groupon is valid only for the Thursday, December 2, Friday the 3rd, Thursday the 9th, or Friday the 10th performance, so call ahead to reserve seats.
The annual event puts Charles Dickens’s classic A Christmas Carol into the ever-merry hands of one of its most memorable, joyful characters—young Scrooge’s boss, Mr. Fezziwig. To kick off a rapturous evening of dinner theater, you’ll enter the intimate theater to the picture of Christmas revelry—the period-costumed cast singing carols by a toasty fire—before taking a seat with a glass of spiced hot cider and commencing the seven-course Victorian meal and performance. Fezziwig and his friends reenact Dickens's classic holiday ghost story at his annual Christmas party, recounting for each other all of Ebeneezer's dramas, despairs, and delightful changes of heart. Feast on a fresh twist on a timeless tale with today's side deal to Actors Theater of Minnesota.
The Minneapolis Examiner calls Fezziwig's Feast "a glimpse into Christmas Past."
