Whether you're planning a little trip to Milwaukee, WI or Chilcago, IL, or perhaps a night out on a little staycation in the Midwest, the Fireside Theatre in Wisconsin is an ideal place to go. Just a quick drive from the Windy City, Madison, or the hustle and bustle of Wisconsin's largest city, Milwaukee, the dinner theater is set back in a small town of Ft. Atkinson that is worth visiting during the day. Take in the downtown, do a little window shopping, and then head to the Fireside Theatre for dinner and a show.
We took the family to a Christmas show that the Fireside Theatre puts on each year. And even though they put on a Christmas show each year, they change it up, encouraging patrons to make a holiday visit to the Fireside an ongoing tradition. Our experience at the Fireside was fun and enjoyable, and one of those nights out with the family to be cherished. Trust me, when you get a brother and sister together (teen and tween at that!) and no one is fighting by the end of the evening.... and there is laughter to boot- you know you've done something right.
We were given a tour of the theater, and learned quite a bit about it. The theater has been around since 1978 and has a rich history in the Arts, conducting auditions in New York City and bringing in the best of the best talent to showcase in the Fireside Theatre's spectacular 652 seat theatre-in-the-round. Upcoming productions of Mary Poppins and Fiddler on the Roof mean my family will be going back to Ft. Atkinson in the very near future!
Whether you're searching for a fun and unique date night, or celebrating a special occasion with the family, the Fireside Theatre has you covered. You'll enjoy either a Featured Menu or and Upgraded Menu, which means you have choices! Either way, you've got three courses of good food, great atmosphere and memories in the making.
I sampled the steak and shrimp...
And the kids loved their fruit salad and kids meals... and smiled practically the entire time we were there.
My husband upgraded to a delectable seafood entree that I'm seriously ordering next time if it is on the menu. There is just something about a delicious fish entree with a glass of wine at a restaurant. I really don't know why I don't order fish more often!
All in all, our experience at the Fireside Dinner Theatre in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin was spectacular. The entertainment was fun and captivating, the food was good and filling, and the company... well, that's what memories are made of after all.
If you get a chance to go to the Fireside Theatre, it's definitely a fun experience.
Have you been to a dinner theatre? We'd love to hear about it!
