Stage West sates growling tummies and comedic cravings alike with a roster of ebullient plays and musicals bolstered by a hot dinner buffet. Upon entering the tiered, 600-seat Las Vegas–style theatre, audiences stake claim on their side-area seats before dropping by the buffet to fuel up for forthcoming athletic applauding. A rollicking farce, Move Over Mrs. Markham exercises atrophied giggle muscles with rigorous sets of innuendo and uproarious hijinks. Starring Jill Whelan of The Love Boat fame, the theatrical romp delights spectators as actors deftly weave a tangled web of mistaken identities and embroider soliloquies onto each other’s costumes. Parents should leave progeny at home with a beloved babysitter or maternal st. bernard dog, as children under the age of six are not permitted to partake in the evening’s festivities. An audience dress code requires that theatregoers don finery such as dress shirts, slacks, and skirts.
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.
