To go to a Wild game or to a larger playhouse in the metro, you’re most likely going to have to pay for parking and an extra hour or 2 for a babysitter. With a local dinner theater, you can save time and money very easily. For communities like Hastings, our dinner theater takes place at a restaurant in downtown Hastings, central to most of our community’s residents.

Reason #3: You’re Supporting a Local Community
