Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about non-existent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an under-seat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what’s on stage instead with today’s deal: for $13, you get a dinner-and-show ticket (a $26 value) at Mosley Street Melodrama in Old Town. This Groupon can also be redeemed for tickets for kids ($20), senior citizens ($22), and groups of 40 or more ($25 each).
Mosley Street Melodrama, which brings life to the tradition of dramatic exaggeration, is Wichita’s only audience-participation dinner theater. Arm yourself with enough snark, wit, and emotional breakdowns to cheer facetiously as the villain saves the day; the productions are designed to incorporate audience cheers, boos, and flying fruit while rowdy, wholesome humor makes the entire family guffaw. After doors open at 6 p.m., theater buffs fuel their laughing machines with an all-you-can-eat barbecue buffet provided by Pig In! Pig Out! BBQ. Pulled pork, beef brisket, smoked chicken, sumptuous side dishes, and coffee or iced tea are available, along with vegetarian options if requested in advance. A bar with specialty drinks, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages is also available.
Once dinner has been doomed to acidic destruction, the stage comes alive with the cacophonous capers of overly emphatic actors who expect to be complemented by equally dramatized guffaws, swoons, and cymbal crashes from the congregation. Each show is followed by a musical comedy revue of singing, dancing, and flaming hula-hoop spinning. Productions run Thursday through Saturday, and theatergoers can choose from three shows, depending on when they attend.
- “High School Melodrama” (May 27–July 17)
- “The Harlot Letter…or Jack to the Future” (July 22–September 4)
- “The Witches of Eastborough” (September 9–October 30)
