Rockin’ the Jukebox
Dates: November 19 to February 6
Celebrations Dinner Theatre presents “Rockin’ The Jukebox”
The local teens in the sleepy town of Lakewood are dying . . . of boredom! Yes, even with the entire world wide web in the palm of their little hands, they just feel like something is missing. That is, until one day, they wander into the old boarded-up diner over on Route 9 and find a strange-looking device sitting in the corner, covered in dust. The oldest among them vaguely recognizes it from an after-school TV show . . . something called . . . a jukebox. Once they plug it in, the sparks are gonna fly!
Be prepared for an incredible experience, original show, delicious food and lasting memories with the whole family! While their menu selection change with every show, it’s always a 4-course dinner consisting of a set soup and salad, a choice of one of 3 dinner entrées and a choice of 2 desserts. The dinner entrée choices are always beef, chicken, and a vegetarian selection. The latter is often pasta, but the chefs like to offer something other than pasta from time to time.
