“The Altos”

The Altos: Like the Sopranos, Only Lower

With a delicious four-course dinner, full bar, and a high energy mystery, you are sure to have a memorable evening!

An interactive musical comedy mystery spoof of the famous HBO series. Meet the family that inspired it all, the Altos. It’s Tony’s funeral (or is it?) and his wife, Toffee, has invited you to the wake. Chris wants you to check your weapons at the door (and if you don’t have any, he’s got extras…). Uncle Senior has a rigged dice game going and Tony’s shrink Dr. Malaise is giving everyone a free analysis. The Father isn’t sure what he is doing and Tony’s Ma is – well, just nuts! But one thing is for sure, almost no one seems sad that Tony is gone and they certainly don’t seem happy once he’s discovered alive. Be prepared to dodge bullets, laugh at the songs, and see if you can’t figure out who put a contract out on Tony!

Online Tickets:  We do offer online ticketing. When purchasing online, you will pay a per ticket convenience fee, however no sales tax will be collected. Once these two amounts are factored in, the cost is almost equal and should not discourage anyone from purchasing online.

Group Seating: If you have a group wishing to buy tickets separately, you may request seats together when you book over the phone or online. If booking online, you will be able to request seats together at the end of the checkout process.

Schedule and Arrival: Arrive and check in between 6:00 and 6:30 to enjoy the appetizer portion of the evening. The show begins between 6:50 and 7:00 so make plans to be seated by then. Salads, dinner, and dessert will be served throughout the show. The show concludes between 9:30 and 10:00.
