My family loves The Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre! We have seen a few shows there this year, including “Freckleface Strawberry” and “CATS” and are looking forward to “How I Became a Pirate” in August.
From Chester County, it takes about an hour to get there (more/less with traffic). I also think Dutch Apple is a great venue for kids to experience live theatre. There really isn’t a “bad seat” in the house. Which I LOVE since I have taken my kids to see the shows – we don’t have to worry about them not being able to see the stage if a tall person sits in front of them. We just move a chair to get a better view. The seats are at tables, not a row of seats. So if your child seems to get antsy from watching the show you can give them crayons and a coloring book to color (by candlelight). My kids are also BIG fans of the dessert bar at Dutch Apple. The food is served fresh buffet style with wait staff bringing drinks and clearing tables. There are lots of yummy options on the buffet, something for everyone.
