Celebrations Dinner Theatre has been a staple of the Winnipeg theatre scene for over 25 years. Our talented cast takes on the best in pop culture, crafting hilarious parodies of the biggest names in movies, music, and TV for an altogether unforgettable show. Take in the excitement (and the stunning live vocals) while you enjoy a four-course meal, served by the actors themselves.
Break from your routine and immerse yourself in a totally unique, truly Winnipeg experience – we guarantee a good time (and we know all your favourite songs).
Each show features three acts, with a four-course meal served in between. You’ll start with soup and salad, move on to one of four amazing entrees, and end with your choice of two desserts.
It’s a live show, so anything could happen. Play along, and the actors might just include you in the act!
Our cast never breaks character and audiences always have a good time. Each show features classic hit songs – we dare you not to sing along.
Owners Janet Cunningham and Doug Stephen have been running the show since 1993, and are masters in the art of amusement. Our shows spotlight amazingly talented actors, original musical productions, and incredible choreography – all set against a backdrop of great costumes, spectacular sets, and state of the art light and sound.
Our shows make a fantastic night out for group occasions. Celebrate your big day in style, bring the office out to unwind, treat your clients to something new, or make it a family night they’ll never forget. We love making a big production out of birthdays and anniversaries.
