Art and food have been intrinsically connected since the first avant-garde artist crafted a Starry Night interpretation out of egg yolks and blueberry yogurt. Celebrate the cohabitation of craft and cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a theater package for two at Salty Dinner Theater (a $185 value), which includes:
- Tickets for two to each of the season’s five productions (a $150 value)
- Two king-size concession treats and beverages for two at each show (a $7 value/show)<p>
Salty Dinner Theater, which ABC 4 News describes as “bringing a twist to traditional on-stage classics,” combines professional players and proficient chefs to create edible productions performed at Madeline’s Steakhouse & Grill in South Jordan, The Old Spaghetti Factory in Orem, and Joe Morley’s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q in Midvale. Seats are assigned when guests arrive to pick up their tickets, and a dinner menu is available at each venue (although not covered by this deal). Pairs munch on king-size concession treats and sip on refreshments during each show as gaggles of thespians interact with attendees, sometimes beseeching their help to choose alternative endings so that fairy tales end happily ever before.
Duos kick off their dramatic adventures with this winter’s production of A Christmas Carol, showing at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday–Friday from December 14–23, and continue their theatrical journey with February’s exploration of medieval trigonometry, King Arthur, Guinevere, and Lancelot. During the summer, the theater lives up to its saline title with The Pirates of Penzance, and Halloween heralds a production of Dracula. Coming full circle, next winter’s new rendition of A Christmas Carol spins Dickens around again, proving the author’s immunity to dizziness and the play’s infinite possibilities. Although ticketholders must make reservations, this deal covers any performance at any of the venues. Check online for a full list of showtimes and corresponding venues.
Although the Salty Dinner Theater offers discounted children’s tickets, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
