I attended the opening of Beaty and the,Beast. The buffet dinner was sensational. A great variety of seafood, chicken, and beef. The show was amazing. Note that there is not a bad seat in the house. Plenty of leg room and wide seats. Highly recommended.

We saw Mamma Mia this past weekend and it was FANTASTIC! Great energy, lots of fun, excellent cast. Could not have asked for better. We saw the movie so we knew what was coming, but lemme tell ya, this cast is way better than the movie cast!! Such a good time! The ending is great and the 'audience loved it... More

4 of us, through the Crystal Lake Park District, took a bus ride to Fort Atkinson, WI to see Mama Mia! At The Fireside Theatre. Our driver, Jennifer, did a great job getting us to and from the location and provided us with good info on the facility. We had lunch at Fireside and it was very good. After lunch... More

We're glad to see that you liked our performance of Mamma Mia and thank you for your review! The prerecorded audio you heard in the show is actually a part of the original vocal score of Mamma Mia. Two of the original members of ABBA wrote the score for the musical and, in an effort to make the songs sound... More

Booked Mama Mia for family of four as our smallest is an Abba fan. We knew the fireside is a Christian business so had no qualms about booking this show. We have seen the movie and knew the story plot but it's the Fireside... how could it not be family friendly??? I mean, the announcer even blessed the audience before... More

We had an absolutely wonderful day at the Fireside! We went to the Thursday matinee of Mamma Mia! When you enter, it is like a small, quaint shopping mall. The gift shops have lots of neat stuff for sale for all ages. Lunch was excellent. I’ve heard conflicting opinions over the years about the food, but we thought it was... More

Dinner theater in Fort Atkinson, WI. Great experience with live theatre. Mama Mia was the play we saw and it was excellent! We went to the Sunday brunch performance. A nice variety of food on a buffet line with chef carved corned beef and turkey. Also included were a variety of pastries and a peach smoothie. A wonderful gem in... More

My friends and I had a great time seeing Mama Mia recently at the Fireside. I am not a big buffet fan but the food was really good and the service was quick. Will go again.

Bringing Broadway to a little cornfield in Wisconsin is quite unique. My wife and I went to see Mamma Mia on stage for the first time, having missed it on Broadway in several missed opportunities. No longer playing on Broadway, we made a commitment to see it while in Madison WI. Fireside is a 45 min drive from Madison through... More
