In the Community: Valentine Dinner Theater

by Brittney Thompson

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
