If you live in Provo, then you know it can be near impossible to come up with fun and creative dates in the middle of a deep, Wasatch winter. That is why I was so excited when I discovered a little Valentine gem a few weeks ago in the form of The Salty Dinner Theater. Anyone who knows me knows that I have two great loves in my life: food and theater. So you can imagine my delight when I learned that these two passions could be combined into one packaged date!

The Salty Dinner Theater is a troupe that performs in front of you during dinner. Unlike the traditional “dinner and a show” routine where you go out to a nice restaurant for your meal before heading to the theater, the Salty Dinner Theater brings the action to you. This month they will be performing Bonnie & Clyde: A Love Story at The Old Spaghetti Factory in Orem. It’s family friendly so whether you are looking for a night out with a special someone or a new family tradition, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

{Hint: The Feb 9th showing is already sold out, but Valentine’s Day is still available!}

Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for kids. (Price of dinner not included). There are also shows in Midvale, Murray, Layton and Sandy, for those who live a little outside the Provo-Orem area. For more information about this month’s shows or the rest of the 2013 season check out
