Stage West sates bellies, hungry jazz hands, and famished funny bones with an evening that includes a hot dinner buffet (drinks not included) alongside the spectacle of famed comedies and musicals. Arriving audiences find their seats in the tiered 600-seat Las Vegas–style theatre, then at 6:30 p.m. can forage the all-you-can-eat buffet, followed by showtime at 8:06 p.m. The mini subscription kicks off with the autobiographical Tuesdays with Morrie, starring Jamie Farr of MASH fame as a journalist who reconnects with an ailing university professor for a final master class on life and Fabergé-egg crafting. The Marvelous Wonderettes closes the season with a beat-driven story told by four girls at the 1958 Springfield High prom who belt classics from the ’50s and ’60s, such as “Lollipop” and “Dream Lover.”
Audiences are advised the dress code requires finery such as dress shirts, slacks, blouse/sweater combos, skirts, and an imported shoulder parrot when donning pirate garb.
Stage West keeps visitors comfortable and entertained with hotel accommodations, live comedies and musicals, and elaborate buffet dining. The concept was the brainchild of the Pechet family, who opened the first Stage West Theatre Restaurant in the Mayfield Inn in Edmonton in 1975. After making several trips to the U.S. to research dinner theatre, the family opened two more locations in Calgary and Mississauga, bringing shows headlined by internationally performing stars.
The Mississauga site recently became a part of the Ramada Worldwide family, and now, after dinner from the renovated buffet and a show in the Las Vegas–style theatre, guests relax in a heated saltwater pool and jacuzzi. The hotel also features a giant, three-storey indoor waterslide ideal for keeping kids busy, gaining a quick burst of adrenaline, or testing whether a suitcase is waterproof.
