For $30, today's side deal gets you dinner and a musical comedy at Mounds Theatre’s production of Knotareel Getaway Cruise in St. Paul (a $47.50 value). Pick any Friday, Saturday, or Sunday show starting at 6 p.m. from February 26 through March 21, 2010. Drinks are not included, but a cash bar and low-fat milk bar are available.
Located in the Dayton’s Bluff area, historic Mounds Theatre is a great spot to experience live theatre, movies, and occasional paranormal encounters. Knotareel Getaway Cruise is an interactive dinner-theater production written by Greg Eiden that features musical comedy and a gaggle of mimicking pirate parrots all named Polly. You’ll ward off scurvy thanks to the show’s dinner menu, which offers roasted chicken with herb vinaigrette, fettuccine or linguine (tossed with olive oil, fresh basil, and garlic), vegetable medley, field green salad, and chef’s choice dessert. You’ll also be supporting a good cause since the theater is home to the Portage for Youth, a nonprofit organization serving disadvantaged youth that collaborates with arts and cultural groups.
East Side Review News has featured Mounds Theatre, interviewing manager Raeann Ruth about the company's first dinner theater.
Though there are no reviews yet for Knotareel Getaway Cruise, one Google Maps user gave the playhouse a solid four stars for a past performance:
- This theater in the rough is really great... we didn't know what to expect... and were we pleasantly surprised! The prices were reasonable...available street parking, and the staff very friendly. All in all, very delightful evening. – George
