about Chanhassen Dinner Theatres:
Currently, three stages host Broadway favorites and other classic fare, with the most family-friendly productions usually scheduled during the summer. While some shows are suitable for children as young as five, parents should be aware that this is not a children's theater. (For example, if you're used to high school productions of Grease, you might have found some elements of the original Broadway version recently presented here objectionable.) The theater is very sensitive to this issue, and invites concerned parents to request detailed information about content before ordering tickets. Babies should be left at home.
The dinner part of the experience includes bread, salad, entree, and coffee, tea, or milk. Appetizers, desserts, and drinks are available for an additional charge. Menus for children and vegetarians are available upon request.
Purchase tickets in advance, and be aware that most guests dress up a bit here; jeans, sneakers, or shorts will stand out. Youth discounts are sometimes offered, and show-only tickets, when available, are sold 10 days prior select performances.
Summer Camps: Weeklong half-day and full-day Chan DT Musical Theatre Camps for ages eight to 18 are taught by the theater's stable of professionals, with a focus on fun, giving kids an exciting glimpse behind the scenes at a working theater. The emphasis is on building confidence while introducing kids to theater fundamentals, including acting, movement, voice, costuming, scenery, and auditioning. Camp fees run $225/week for morning or afternoon sessions; no extended care is available. Full-day offerings cost $450/week.
