Dueling Pianos – April 19

Posted on

April 19, 2019 7 -10 pm

Felix and Fingers is a dueling pianos company that thrives on audience participation. The high energy all request show will grab the crowd’s attention, meanwhile the comedy and interactive elements are designed to keep the audience engaged.

The show is inherently flexible. Any age group or demographic can find something relatable in a dueling pianos show. Felix and Fingers has entertained family-friendly festival audiences, bars packed with 20-somethings, retirement communities, and everything between. And whether we are entertaining ten people or a lawn of thousands, the show adapts to the audience.

Dinner will be included in the ticket price and will be provided by Deb’s Catering. Tickets can be purchased for show only for $35.

 

Closed on Easter Sunday April 21

Hooray For Homicide- June 1

Posted on

Act One takes place at a typical high school. Act Two takes place at the class reunion, twenty years later. Sometime in between, the principal has died – or has he been murdered? Who could have done it? The class jock, the class clown, the cheerleader? Or the person sitting beside you?

Our dinner theater events are a riot and will have you laughing all evening! Reservations are required and will be taken until one week prior to the show. Reservations can be made by calling 217-738-2323. Payment is due at the time of reservation. Seats have been known to sell out quickly so call us as soon as possible!

Tickets are $45 each and include a three course dinner and the performance. There are 8 seats per table but you are free to purchase as many or as few tickets as you need. If you make a reservation for a group of friends you will automatically be seated together; if members of your party make separate reservations, be sure to tell us you’d like to be seated with your friends.

Social time begins at 6:30pm and the dinner begins at 7pm with a plated salad. The first act begins as soon as the first course is complete. A buffet style dinner is served after the first act, giving you time to restock the wine at your table too! A plated dessert will be served near the end of the show.

The performances are created and performed by Upstage Productions, which has been producing interactive comedy murder mysteries since 1989, Upstage’s shows are a perfect blend of witty improvisation and legitimate mystery. They perform at a variety of locations all over the United States with a strong following wherever they perform, and have been doing shows at Willow Ridge Winery for over three years. Some of their fans have been to over fifty of their performances across the country! Don’t miss this terrific evening of comedy, mystery, and murder at Willow Ridge Winery!
