Tickets and Reservations (6)

Confirming Reservations

Patrons will  receive an email confirmation email when purchasing tickets and reserving a table. Patrons can simply provide their names, under which their reservations had been made, or print off their confirmation and provide this to our door staff on the day of the performance. We do not issue printed tickets for performances.

Dinner Reservations

For dinner reservations, we reserve a table in advance for patrons and this is available to them for the entire evening. Dinner is served in the performance room. Dinner is served early in the evening before the performance to ensure that there are few disruptions during the performance. Our wait staff are available to all patrons throughout the evening.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for evening performances, with most shows starting at 8:30 p.m. Dinner seating is between 6:00-7:00 pm and dinner is served between 6:00-8:30pm The kitchen is open until 10:00pm, unless otherwise stated by the wait staff, to accommodate late orders and dessert orders, which are often served during the break.

(this text needs to be edited) Dinner tables are pre-assigned on the day of the show for patrons. Patrons may make a request for a specific table or a particular area but are never promised this request at the time of reserving. Tables are assigned based on “priority calling”. This means the first patron to call and book a dinner reservations will very likely get the table that has been requested. The last dinner reservation to be made by a patron will very likely be assigned a table in the back of the room.

Ticket Purchases

For “ticket only” holders, who have paid the advanced ticket price, a seat is guaranteed in the performance room although seats are selected on a “first reserved, first serve” basis.  Seats for ticket patrons are often along the walls in various locations in the room and often are not at a table. This varies on the popularity of a performance and if table seating is available, this will be offered to ticket holders on a “first come, first served” basis.

Performances start times and length of shows

Evening performances start at 8:30pm unless otherwise indicated. On occasion an opening act will perform between 8:30-9:00pm. This is followed by a short break and the main performance begins around 9:15pm. Most performances consist of two sets in the length of 45 minutes, with a 20 minute break between acts. This is only a guideline and each evening varies.

We also offer matinee performances. For matinees, doors open at 12:00 p.m. (noon) with most performances beginning at 1:00 p.m. We offer lunch between 12:00-1:00pm although lunch hours may be extended depending on the performance start time. Matinee performances are between 1:00-4:00pm and usually run the full length. This is only a guideline and each matinee varies.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Tickets purchased are the responsibility of the purchaser. By providing us with your credit card information, you are purchasing the tickets. Cancellations will be accepted up to 48 hours prior to the performance and refunds will be processed, minus a charge of $5.00 per ticket. No cancellations will be accepted within 48 hours of the performance and thus no refunds issued. No exchanges are possible.


Discounts generally are not offered, but depending on the presenter, some may be offered on occasion.
