Legendary entertainer Martin Short made theatrical history when he broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon to Herongate Barn Theatre in Pickering. Choose between the following options:
- For $28, you get one ticket to a show, plus dinner (a $62 total value).
- For $15, you get one ticket to a show only (a $30 value).
Housed in a century-old dairy barn amidst authentic stable fixtures, vintage theatre seats, and rural checkered textiles, Herongate Barn Theatre shines the footlights on arts culinary and dramatic. Presented the Eat Smart award, Herongate's food architects daily prepare an ever-changing smorgasbord of comfort classics, which have including among their savoury ranks plates of roasted pork loin with applesauce, roast beef, and cranberry chicken. Not to go unaided into the great digestive unknown, entrees are dutifully partnered with down-home sides such as mom's sweet potato bake and a full drink menu. Diners can graze as they lap up one of four upcoming performances, including the current show, Nana's Naughty Knickers —a comedy focusing on the seedy underbelly of senior citizenry—and the upcoming 4 Guys and 3 Nights of Comedy stand-up act. Call ahead to make a reservation.
Though Herongate Barn Theatre sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
