The gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show wants to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas! We hope you are enjoying the holiday with loved ones. After all the presents are unwrapped, gather up your gang and spend the evening with “the family” here at Capone’s Dinner & Show! Tickets are half price, and the gang is in full force ready to entertain!
Al has a special gift for you on Christmas Day just for coming to the show. It is “the family” gathering you’ll want to attend on Christmas Day! You’re gonna have a blast!
The new show preview held at Capone’s Dinner & Show on September 16 was a huge success. While much work is still needed, the guests provided plenty of feedback. Visit the Facebook wall to read the comments. Overall, the general consensus is…the new show will be a huge hit!
Originally the new show was to debut on October 1st. Now the date has been pushed back to October 16th. This will give the cast more time to prepare, the costume details to be worked out, the music scores to be completed, the set to be finished, the ‘Al Capone family welcome’ to be fine-tuned and other details to be worked out. The wait will be well worth it.
Guests were treated to a buffet at the preview, which was greatly appreciated by all. A free show and lunch? Wow! Al sure is a generous guy. In return, guests have commented on the new show, spread the word to their fellow Facebook friends, and some even met with the show director after the preview to give their 2¢ worth.
I was asked if some of the content was too sensitive. If you were at the preview, please feel free to comment on Al’s Blog concerning this – especially the lines in the new show concerning:
- Gay Rights
- Women’s Rights
- Sexual Innuendos
- Other (please specify)
I would also like to know what your favorite parts/lines in the new show preview were. Mine was the texting telephone. To me, that was very funny! However, I spent most of the time laughing, so I could have missed something else incredibly witty.
So many guests have enjoyed the current show. If you’ve not seen it, or haven’t been to Capone’s in awhile, do yourself a night out and see the current show. If you are waiting for the new show, please call (407) 397-2378 to confirm that it will be performed on the night you’d like to visit. While the new date of October 16th is the goal, there is no guarantee that it won’t be pushed back again. You know show business!
Capone’s Dinner & Show is offering an opportunity to Facebook Fans to attend a preview version of our brand new show scheduled to open in October. Entering our 20th year of “dinnertainment” the show is anticipated to be better than ever! This special preview will be held Sunday, September 16th at 2:00 p.m.
The show will be presented in a workshop format to enable the talented performers to fine-tune the show based on your feedback. How cool is that! There is no cost to attend, but you must register. Seats are limited and are being reserved on a first come first served basis until capacity is reached.
If you have seen the current show, this is a great way to experience the NEW show before the rest of the public can see it! All new script, all new music (except for one returning hit “Anybody Who Is Anybody”) and all new dance numbers from all your favorite characters. Plus a gangster shootout in which you can WIN BIG! We’re betting you’ll want to return again after October and see the final product. After all, the Wise Guys indicate that this is an offer you better not refuse!
What is the new show about? Here is a short synopsis:
The show takes place approx. 1 year after the current show and the big news is Bunny & Fingers are now the proud parents of Francis Alouicous Salvatorio Jr. AKA “Little Pinky” (get it? Fingers – Pinky). Of course Fingers struggles trying to juggle the responsibilities of fatherhood with the pressure of being a big time gangster in Capone’s organization while Bunny is selling “cheap crap” from the gift shop to raise money for Pinky’s college fund.
Which brings us to the return of a favorite character from the original show: Detective Marvel – now demoted to Beat Cop – determined as ever to shut the joint down. To raise money, Fingers has reluctantly taught Bunny to play craps which leads to her and Babs and Bubbles getting arrested – and it’s up to Fingers to bust them out of prison. Of course he fails miserably but not to worry – The girls manage to escape from the chain gang without his help and return to Capone’s “on the lam;” a little depressed but not so much that a good tap number can’t cheer them up. Marvel follows in hot pursuit and interrogates the guests to try and track them down.
It all works out in the end as the girls are set free, the rat is revealed and Jewel & Marvel end up handcuffed together (in a good way).
To attend the workshop, go to our Facebook Page. Like us, if you haven’t already, and then click the contest tab. If you can’t attend the workshop but would still like to provide us your feedback, click the survey tab and help by answering a series of questions.
