Miracle of 34th Street

From November 2nd – December 23rd, the Fireside is hosting Miracle on 34th Street: The Musical. It’s a Christmas tale that is inspirational will get you in the spirit for the holidays that are just around the corner. The play is also based off a Christmas movie, so if your significant other is obsessed with Christmas, this is a great idea to surprise them with to see. Now, the Fireside is a lot more expensive than the Young Auditorium because it comes with dinner, but the great thing is, is that they do offer many selections for what days and times you can attend the play. That means you’re able to see it on a Tuesday at 1:00 in the afternoon, or see it on a Saturday at 1:30 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. It also gives you a menu as to what is going to be served as the appetizer, entrée and dessert! Each meal for each play that is presented at the Fireside has its own theme to it. For example, for dessert they are having red velvet cake with gingerbread ice cream to celebrate the idea of Christmas. The Fireside is in Fort Atkinson which is not too bad of a drive from Whitewater. The longest it would take to go would be 25 minutes’ tops. The theater is a very classy place with many gift shops and great acting. I have gone there myself and was very impressed. Going on a date to The Fireside would be something you can put in the books for...

The Nutcracker

Many couples enjoy having a night of fine dining and heading to a play afterwards, especially during the winter time. For a date night idea, I have come to the thought of going to plays and experiencing other atmospheres other than staying in for the night. Whitewater’s Young Auditorium has been known to host some of the best theatrical plays in the area and that are plenty to see if you are interested in the plays that are being presented for this month of December. The Nutcracker is a play that everyone knows about or has seen. It’s a classic tale, and if you have not seen it, now is the perfect time to watch one of the most magical holiday stories on stage. The Nutcracker will be playing on Thursday, December 16that 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and the ticket prices range from $15-$22. Before the play, you and your significant other can grab a bight at one of the few restaurants we do have in Whitewater. As I have mentioned before in a previous blog post, 841 Brewhouse and Second Salem are on the fine dining side of things. You can also grab a slice of pizza at Gus’, or tend to Cozumel or Taco Fresco. There are options of what can do to make the night a special one. For some people, plays may not be their forte, but getting out of your comfort zone is something you are supposed to do in life. It’s nice to see that maybe you would enjoy a play once in a while because it’s something you both could talk...
