TUSAYAN, Ariz. - A large number gathered at the Grand Canyon Dinner Theatre & Steakhouse May 10 for the Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce and Visitor's Bureau's first mixer of the summer season.
The evening featured a preview of the theater's show Miss Kitty's Grand Adventure "I'm No Mail Order Bride."
The theater is located in what used to be the museum portion of the Western Discovery Museum. An old west saloon themed steakhouse is located in the front of the building.
Along with the theater experience, the Grand Canyon Dinner Theatre lives up to its name serving a family-style dinner during the show delivered to every table featuring flame-seared steaks, chops, poultry, and fish specials as well as vegetarian options. The wait staff will also wear period costumes, with the waitresses donning vintage Harvey Girl-style uniforms.
The Dinner Theatre is lined with building facades reminiscent of an old west town, accented by wagon wheel chandeliers. The playroom has been built to create the look and feel of an 1890s gaslight theatre, complete with red velvet draperies and lamp posts much like those that stood originally on the streets of Tombstone in the early 1900s.
The dinner video pre-show is projected on two huge video screens and features a look at life in the west, both past and present.
