We were invited by Dutch Apple Dinner Theater in Lancaster, Pennsylvania for dinner and to watch the wonderful musical Wizard of Oz. My children were so excited to attend as they’ve never been and I haven’t been here in over 15 years so I might have been just as excited as they were.
As we walked in, it doesn’t look like the theater changed much. So many childhood memories came flooding back. You can either get tickets for dinner and the show or just the show. They offer many different shows throughout the year. The remaining shows for this year are The Wizard of Oz from June 21 to August 4; Swing from August 9 to September 15; Sister Act from September 20 to November 10; and A Christmas Carol from November 15 to December 30. They also offer children’s shows: Seussical from July 6 to August 3 and Cinderella from November 30 to December 30. The shows change every year so check out their website for all their shows http://www.dutchapple.com.
We were seated in the second row, perfect for my two youngest to see the stage. As soon as you walk in, the delicious food aromas draws your attention to the buffet. Their salad bar has everything you could want on a salad and their hot food bar offered fish, chicken and veggies; even perogies! I was in food heaven. But don’t fill up on the buffet just yet. They also have a dessert bar and make-your-own ice cream sundae bar! Each show also offers specialty drinks with or without alcohol that come with souvenir glasses.
After we stuffed ourselves and felt like we couldn’t move, it was time for the show! It was amazing! The actors and actresses were phenomenal, my youngest laughed so hard I think he snorted the one time. We’ve seen the movie but it’s a whole other experience watching it on stage.
If you haven’t been here before, plan on making a stop. It’s money well spent and the experience is perfect for parents and children!
