Have Your Group Holiday Party at Capone’s Dinner Theater

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas is a great time to have a group holiday party. Whether you are planning an office party for work, a friendly get-together, or a family reunion, this is a great time of the year to come together as one big family. Who better than to help you make this a night to remember, than ‘the family’ at Capone’s Dinner & Show?!

In order to get the best group rate, 15 or more adults need to be in your party. If you don’t have that many, you’ll still get a good deal. After all, tickets are half-price online to start with! Load up your guest list with people of all ages. Capone’s Dinner & Show is fun for everyone. For a group rate, be sure to speak with one of the wise guys or gals at 407- 397-2378.

Advice for Parents Planning a Group Holiday Party

We do advise parents that our show script contains sexual innuendos similar to many comedy shows on prime-time television. For some parents, this is not acceptable. There are other dinner theaters you can plan your group holiday party at. Additionally, the action during the show is more comical than violent, but mobsters do use bats, toy guns and a prize launcher. Please use your own discretion as to what your child should experience. We have many glowing reviews from parents of children of all ages (and a few reviews, of course, that felt the show was not family-friendly).

Make your Group Happy

For your group holiday party, be sure to order one of the following:

  • Special Occasion Cake (in addition to regular dessert)
  • Dress-the-Part Costumes for Your Entire Gang
  • Souvenir Gifts for Everyone in Your Group

These items make the evening a little more special. Who doesn’t enjoy an extra dessert? A boa or fedora for everyone? That’s fun! Souvenirs will help those family members that ‘tip a few too many’ to remember the good time they had at the group holiday party for years to come!

If you want to be a high roller for the night of your group holiday party, upgrade to VIP tickets. You’ll receive early admission, choice seating, tokens (for table games at Al’s Four Deuces Lounge) and other extras. A limited number of VIP upgrades are available each show so be sure to plan accordingly. Please note: Toddlers and infants 3 years and under are not allowed in the VIP section. Furthermore, children 5 years and under are not allowed up in the balcony, so be sure your VIP tickets are for the main floor if anyone in your party is 5 years old or younger.
