Favorites Revived in New Show at Capone’s

The new show at Capone’s is reviving some old guest favorites. When something is liked, it is nice to see it come around again. Unlike sweater vests, hair metal bands, velour tracksuits or mullet hair cuts, some things are pleasing to experience again. Such is the case with some of the ‘new’ features in Capone’s anniversary show.

More Audience Participation

Audience participation has always played a large role in the show. It is definitely a guest favorite. However, now there is more audience participation than ever before. Guests participate from the very beginning when they must say a secret password to enter the speakeasy. From that time on, until the evening’s end, participation escalates throughout the new show at Capone’s. Guests that welcome participation, seem to have the best experience of all.

In previous shows, mostly men from the audience were selected to ‘help out’ on stage. Now men, women and even children (seasonal) participate. While the cast has always handled nearly every situation with complete professionalism, their talent in this area is utilized now more than ever. Men and women are somewhat predictable, but kids? They do and say the darnedest things… and you can bet the wise guys and gals are prepared for it!

New Show at Capone’s Revives Old Song Favorite

Even some of the musical numbers have been revived from past shows. For example, check out the photo below from the early 1990’s. It features dancers performing the old “Cell Block Tango.” It has been revived from the very first show ever performed at this Orlando dinner show. Now this guest favorite is featured all over again in the new show at Capone’s. Wait until you see the new version!

New Show at Capone’s features old hit

“Cell Block Tango” is revived from this early 1990’s hit.

Repeat offenders (returning guests) know several of the songs that are performed nightly. Often songs get stuck in your noodle after attending the new show at Capone’s. Check out this recent guest comment:

“Happy Mother’s Day!! My seven-year-old has been entertaining me all day with endless choruses of ‘fuh-get about it!!’ ‘get atta here!!’ and of course her favorite, ‘I like-a yo’ spicy meatballs!!!’ Thank you so much [C. Y.] for inviting us [to Capone’s Dinner & Show]! We had the time of our lives.”

Return to ‘the family’ and Visit Capone’s Again

If you’ve already experienced Capone’s Dinner & Show any time over the past 25 years, it’s worth another visit. Many things come and go, and trends have a way of making their way around again. Wear your velour tracksuit if you must, but return home to ‘the family’ and see the new show at Capone’s. We promise, it will be very difficult to… “fuhget about it!”


Orlando Dinner Shows New Year’s Eve Parties

Orlando dinner shows New Year’s Eve parties offer smaller crowds and a lot of fun. While theme parks are an exciting way to ring in the New Year, many tourists and local residents will select a smaller venue to celebrate at.

Orlando Dinner Shows New Year's Eve

For many people, theme parks are not enjoyable when the crowds get as large as they do on New Year’s Eve. You pretty much have to spend the entire day at the park, getting there as early as possible. If you prefer to dine out on New Year’s Eve and do something special, why not attend an Orlando dinner show?

Best of the Orlando Dinner Shows New Years Eve Shows

The best dinner show to celebrate New Year’s Eve at is Capone’s Dinner & Show. If you like the idea of making it an early night, attend the 5:00 p.m. show. Tickets can be purchased online at half price or by using the couponTake the entire family and have a blast!

The 9:00 p.m. New Year’s Eve Gala at Capone’s Dinner & Show is sure to be special. In fact, tickets for the main floor VIP section usually sell out quickly, with the VIP balcony seating a popular choice as well. Call 407-397-2378 or order your tickets online. There are plenty of tickets still available, but you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to make your reservations. This fun show is a popular tradition and is attended regularly on New Year’s Eve.

Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Show offers an add-on to their regular show on New Year’s Eve. Regular tickets start at $53.95 + $35 for the NYE add-on. This one-of-a-kind comedy and mystery experience is a nice way to ring in a new year.

As of this time, nothing special is planned for New Year’s Eve, however, with plenty of places on I-Drive, you’ll find somewhere to ring in the New Year. See the show early, then make plans out or celebrate at home or in your hotel’s bar.

Best Bet

In closing, if you like large crowds and an all-day affair, get tickets to an Orlando theme park. To celebrate in a smaller venue, which also requires a little less time and money (yet still extremely enjoyable), attend an Orlando dinner show New Year’s Eve party. Capone’s is a sure bet.

September 19: Talk Like a Pirate Day

This coming Monday is Talk Like a Pirate Day. So Aaaarrrr ye feelin’ like talkin’ like a pirate? Talking like a pirate can be a lot of fun, especially if you are a Buccaneers fan, work on a boat dock or cruise ship, or plan to attend a certain Orlando dinner show! For 14 years, this non-traditional celebration has grown into an international phenomenon. You don’t even have to go to Davy Jones’ locker to get the treasure! It’s right here in Central Florida.

Ahoy! This fun-filled day with maties carrrrry-ing on creates plenty of yo-ho-ho-ing amongst seadogs. So much fun that many local businesses have created special events whar ye don’t have to be walkin’ the plank to get some booty. Don’t be a scallywag and hang the jib, find or create a party and get talkin’ like a pirate!

Talk Like a Pirate Day Special Events in Orlando

This is one of the first years that Pirates Dinner Adventure in Orlando, Florida has not offered a special for this holiday. According to I-Drive, Pirate’s Town will have a short contest prior to their show to see if guests are able to talk like pirates. Their “EFSAVINGS16” special covers the entire month of September. This is when crowds are fewer and discounts are widely used in all of the area’s attractions. Discounts lure the remaining tourists into these lesser-known venues. They also give local residents an incentive to get out and experience what is offered to visitors. Take advantage, people!

The Florida Hospitality Industry is hosting a Talk Like a Pirate Day at the Tin Roof at I-Drive 360. If you are in the hospitality industry, it should be a fun time. Special drink prices will be offered. If you win the talking contest, your bar tab could be taken care of! Other prizes will be awarded as well. The party takes place from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

An Especially Sweet Incentive on September 19

Talk Like a Pirate Day at Krispy Kreme

In addition to these fun events, the one I am most excited about is Krispy Kreme’s Talk Like a Pirate Day offer. Any landlubber who dares to enter a participating Krispy Kreme on Monday and talk like a pirate will score one free Original Glazed doughnut. Want a dozen donuts? Use a custom Snapchat pirate filter, ‘dress’ like a pirate, show your Snapchat image to a team member and score ye bounty!

  • Krispy Kreme Kissimmee – 5310 W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, (192 / Mile Marker 11.5), Kissimmee, FL  34746

Mobster Talk

If you’d rather talk like a mobster, you do not need a special holiday for that. Every evening, Capone’s Dinner & Show immerses itself in the hay days of mobsters and dames. As with pirate lingo, the online 20’s slang dictionary is a blast to read through and will properly prepare you for an evening at this joint.

Take a trip back to 1930 and enjoy an Orlando dinner show for half price! You won’t incur extra charges for parking, electronic tickets or alcoholic beverages either. It’s a blast from the past that you can enjoy every night of the year, no matter how you talk.

Remember to switch your language preference on Facebook back to English from English Pirate. Otherwise you’ll annoy your winches and scabbard friends!

Capone’s is Best Value

Experience an Orlando dinner show while the crowds are smaller, before the busy holiday season is here.

Dinner Show Talent – Not Lacking in Orlando

Orlando’s dinner show talent is extremely gifted. We are definitely not lacking in performers with a lot to offer. With bigger entertainment venues all around Central Florida, dinner theater has a wide selection of talent to pull from. It also helps attract performers from all over the world.

It isn’t uncommon for one of the characters or performers of a dinner show to also work as a performer at a theme park. Additionally, the performing arts in Orlando offer a great resource of talent. Because it can be difficult to make a living from one show or attraction, dinner show talent often split their schedules amongst various venues. Every once-in-a-while a local performer receives such acclaim they find an even bigger stage.

dinner show talent Ginger MinjTake for instance Orlando drag queen Ginger Minj. This talented performer, Joshua Eads-Brown, grew up in Leesburg and has performed in many shows. While most dinner show talent doesn’t find itself in the national spotlight, Ginger Minj has. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is a reality show on Bravo. The show features 14 contestants vying for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” Minj was a runner-up for the seventh season, finishing behind winner Violet Chachki.

Minj has also performed her one-woman show in New York titled, “Crossdresser for Christ — The Musical.” She has also shot a music video and traveled to several other countries. Now this dinner show talent returns to Orlando with an appearance on Friday, August 5 at Sleuths Mystery Dinner Theater. At this show, Eads will appear as the character of Madeline in “The Show Must Go On.” This is one of 13 rotating mysteries featured at Sleuths. For more information about this special appearance, call 407-363-1985 or go to

Dinner Show Talent at Capone’s Dinner & Show

Orlando Dinner Show photo featuring a character from Capone's Dinner & ShowA majority of the performers at Capone’s Dinner & Show have had their fair share of success. Not only is the dinner show talent successful, the staff is as well. It isn’t uncommon for guests to return year after year only to have the same exceptional wait staff!

Not only are the actors talented, they have a special talent. The show at Capone’s features some of the best standup comedy you’ll ever experience. To interact with some audiences takes a gift like none other! From the loud boisterous guest to the shyest young child, the performers read the guest and interact in true gangster fashion.

Because there is so much dinner show talent in Orlando, why go to New York or Las Vegas? Save a night for a dinner show while you are on vacation in Orlando. Discover a hidden gem of ability. Whether it’s a gangster, drag queen, pirate, hula dancer or knight, Orlando’s dinner show talent is genius. See you at the show!
