Who said dinner theatre had to be classy? When it comes to loud, rambunctious, unrefined dining, the Royale Dumpe is champion. This meal and show set in the times of lords and maidens offers interactive fun, laughs, entertainment, and food you can eat with your hands. It’s a family-oriented event, but some of the humor is a bit risqué (use discretion). Each act introduces another course of the meal. The only option on the menu is chicken, but in the midst of this medieval mayhem, just enjoy the victuals and be thankful that you weren’t beheaded! - Cathryn D. Blue
