Guests with dress-code-appropriate shirts, slacks, and skirts pull from a hot buffet before an evening of entertainment. Divorce Party The Musical, an adults-only comedy, follows one woman’s post-marriage journey to healing through popular songs with reimagined lyrics. The Love Train music revue celebrates soul and R&B classics from such seminal singers as Aretha Franklin, Chuck Berry, Etta James, and James Brown. The Tony-winning Avenue Q, on the other hand, tells the humour-filled story of a recent college grad struggling to find his life’s purpose amid a cast of singing, mature puppets. Before the show, relax in a heated saltwater pool and jacuzzi, or try out Broadway-style dance moves in the fitness area.<p>
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.
