Dinner theatre comes to Market Square

The Square Room Dinner Theatre will present “Barefoot in the Park,” a classic play by Neil Simon, at the Square Room in Market Square on August 7-8, 2014 at 6 p.m.

The Square Room Dinner Theatre is Knoxville’s only theater company that provides a quality theatrical play and a four-course dining experience catered by Café 4 in the Square Room. Local actor and Square Room Dinner Theater Producer Mark Jennings developed the dinner theatre concept when he saw a niche for dinner entertainment in downtown Knoxville.

“Dinner theater seemed to be a logical fit for the Square Room. Knoxville is very supportive of its local artists, and every night, downtown is packed with people looking for entertainment,” said Jennings. “The Square Room Dinner Theater will be the perfect fit for couples, groups of friends and families looking for an upscale, fun night out in downtown.”

The pre-fixe menu, catered by Café 4, will feature four-courses: a cheese tray, choice of soup or salad, choice of entrée and New York-style cheesecake. The doors will open at 6 p.m., and guests are encouraged to order by 6:30 p.m. to guarantee service before the show begins on the Square Room stage at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets to the show are $45 and include both dinner and a show. Tickets must be purchased in advance online at www.TheSquareRoom.com, by calling the Square Room box office at 865-544-4144, or in person at the barista counter in Café 4 at 4 Market Square.
