A show night with us...

Our current venue offers dining before the show as well as show only options. For those wanting to wine and dine before the entertainment, you are able to dine at either of the two resort restaurants-Tiki Bar (spring/summer only) & Back Porch Bistro (reservations highly recommended). Diners will arrive at their dinner reservation time and choose from a pre-fix menu along with wine and spirits from their full service bar.  If you opt out of dinner, no worries, our venue has a theater of full service bar, bar seating during the show, or rows of chairs seated as close to the stage as the performers can handle;)  


'The show last night was great! What was I most impressed with????THE CHOREOGRAPHY was fascinating. The HARMONIES were awesome as well! The sound system was right on the money…no feedback….i could hear everyone…and it was flawless.'

-Terry Davis  

'Thank you for the great show last night. On the way out the door, our son said "I think that was the best one yet". It's very cool to hear that from a 12 year old boy. On the way home our kids were both asking about Motown- what is it, where is the name from, etc. It made me stop and think about what we are able to expose them to through your shows. They can appreciate a world they might not ever know existed, if not for seeing live performances.'

'Great music & dancing - musical direction, sound.  All Marvelous!!' - Anonymous
