I have been attending various products at Murry's Dinner Playhouse since I was a young child. Murry's Dinner playouse has been at the same location since 1967. Murry’s Dinner Playhouse began as the Olde West Dinner Theatre in 1967. I remember my Aunt Anna being a part of the entire production a the Olde West Dinner Theatre. My parents and us girls would often go to watch the productions.
Murry's is among the country's top 10 oldest dinner theatres providing great entertainment to include a full buffet meal with every show. A professional theatre with life comedies, plays & musicals. The best part of Murry's is you get a live performance and a great buffet dinner. The live stage performances feature Broadway musicals and comedies that your whole family for generations will remember.
Greg and I had the pleasure of watching "Sister Act" live on Sunday night. We arrived early and ready to hit that wonderful buffet line. Murry's is still one place where you can get fresh carved meats to include roast beef, ham and turkey. Our Sunday meal included the wonderful roast beef and ham. The buffet line contains a large variety of salads, vegetables and other meat choices to choose from as well. The fried chicken at Murry's is top-notch! Tea or coffee is included with the meal. They do have sodas and a full bar if you wish to purchase other drinks.
Sister Act was amazing. The talent at Murry's is remarkable. This musical will keep you laughing throughout the entire evening. I highly recommend this play. In fact, I liked it better than the movie. The final performance is April 20th so be sure and get your tickets now.
Did you know Murry's has local auditions? The Murry's stage has iincluded several Arkansan performers who are well-known today, including Wes Bentley, Amy Lee (of Evanescence) and George Newbern. The next call for auditions is on April 29th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. For details and instructions visit their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MurrysDinnerPlayhouse/
Arkansas has some great local talent and it is fun to witness that first hand by supporting the local Arts. Murry's Dinner Playhouse is a great opportunity for the cast to showcase their amazing talent. The cast ranges in ages from young to old. The sets are built at Murry's, the costumes are custom made and rehearsals are conducted just like on Broadway.
Murry's does not disappoint! Overall I give this great theatre a 10+ on a scale of 10. The 2019 lineup includes Sister Act, Shear Madness, Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash, Mary Poppins and much more. For tickets: https://murrysdp.com/
