The lovely Robin and I had an absolutely marvelous time at The Fireside Theater in Ft. Atkinson, Wisconsin, a few evenings ago with about forty Salvationist friends from the central U.S.A.
The Fireside is a dinner theater owned by the Klopcic family from its inception fifty-one years ago. It is the only Actor’s Equity dinner theatre in Wisconsin and a popular destination for couples, families, and tour groups from all over the place, not just southern Wisconsin. The buffet meal was substantial, endless, and delicious, and the service was exceptional.
After the meal our group was ushered into the theater where we enjoyed a two-act musical, "The Sensational 70s," that was impossible NOT to sing along with. The compact eight-piece band, eight vocalists, and master of ceremonies kept us entertained throughout--though I carried a lot of the harmonies from my seat in the third row back.
"The Sensational 70s" continues through February 22, the first of seven shows planned for 2015. The Fireside is located at 1131 Janesville Avenue in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin.
