109 South Main Street
We’re once again teaming up with Cafe Nordo, adding chefs to our artistic pressure cooker. Think Iron Chef meets Theater Thunderdome. Kitchen artists and theater artists collaborating to bring you the freshest dinner theater experience ever.
The two Sundays in August, we will gather chefs, playwrights, and performers at a Destiny Party. Teams of playwrights and chefs will draw a theme, cast, director, and signature ingredient, and will have four days to create the perfect pairing of theater and food. That is just four days to write, rehearse, design, score, and prepare recipes before serving our audience the fruits of our labors on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.
Tickets $65 (vegetarian options available upon request)
Includes 4 courses of art, crafted by the best up and coming (and celebrated) Chefs and Playwrights in town.
All performances at Cafe Nordo’s beautiful Culinarium in Pioneer square.
