We're Off To See The Wizard Oz Dinner Show | Alhambra Theatre & Dining Jacksonville FL

We're Off To See The Wizard Oz Dinner Show | Alhambra Theatre & Dining Jacksonville FL

hey jacksonville we are back,showing you all some love,the wizard of oz today,we're at the alhambra theater and dining,for showing of the wizard of oz never,been up this way this is almost stop two,for us this year on the oz tour we,started at the turn of the year with,this new wizard of oz museum out in,cocoa beach florida,check out that video up here and later,this year we'll be back at the land of,oz,up in beech mountain north carolina,widget of oz one of our favorite movies,and stories of all time,the alhambra theater this little dining,and play action happening,not including that siren i'm getting,rained on while i talk out here but i,don't know how much i can film inside i,suspect it's much like any other theater,that you go to where no filming or,pictures allowed,here's what it looks like inside,a little photo op here with dorothy in,the emerald city,we have a little lounge here before the,show,silent auction happening,the alhambra theater is the longest,running or oldest running,dinner theater,in the country opened in 1967.,we've got special wizard of oz drinks,here,the drinks,pretty strong i feel like i might be in,austin,we've got our playbill equivalent the,stage light by the way yes i am wearing,jeans with the shirt and,some loafers i,suggested dress was business casual here,suggested,i don't think anyone in jacksonville was,going to wear business casual but,i'm kind of surprised,so this theater also makes their own,sets,behind the scenes,talent here,and on the horizon we have grumpy old,men and ghosts the musical here as well,as like a late night performance of,rocky heart picture show and some,one-off shows with elvis,barbra streisand,here's a list of the cast characters,there's the wizard of security,synergy and advertising,and they do have a live dog as toto,and in his free time he loves the beach,bacon and chasing geese,this is what it looks like inside,here are our seats which is really weird,kind of sit with strangers,right opposite of you,so if that's a bother for you during,still like prolonged confide or virus,is what it is,but this is the way everything else,looks in here,it's really cool,this is our menu for the night,so the seating is really cool it,actually honestly reminds me a little,bit of medieval times,but the only thing is like if you're,sitting further back you're not really,seeing the front of the stage if the,actors go to the front but the stage,setup is kind of like right in this area,and the front row seats are kind of like,the premiere seats but you're looking up,at people like right in front of you i,think the second row might be the best,i will say the stranger sitting opposite,of you if you're not here at the party,of four,or the larger party where people are,sitting together like six over there,it's really weird because they put the,two seats together you don't sit,one and one,so,you're literally having like people like,breathing right on your plate,and so the show for the matinee starts,at 1 50 the seeding started at 12,and the food service starts at 12. so,food service runs i think from 12 until,1 30.,so you're not like munching away while,the show is ongoing here,and one other thing it is like going to,a broadway play or any other type of,theater there's no photos or video,during the production so we'll give you,our review or a take afterwards,and finally this is not a sponsored,video we pay for this ourselves the,price for today's matinee was somewhere,in like the 60 per person range but,before i get inu dated with people,asking how much of things cost check,their website because the cost per play,could be different,and here is our,salad emerald greens,get it,darkly shoes,ruby slippers,mellow stage right now,this is mary's,and chicken carbonara,and now i'm ready to go to sleep,mary got the prince dessert peaches and,cream,and i've got a chocolate and strawberry,cupcake,well 20 minutes before showtime it is,pretty full up in here sold out for this,run,so we wrapped with our wizard of oz,theater and dining experience at the,alhambra,theatre,yep,i thought it was a really good time i,thought it was amazing i think we would,have to break it down into two different,sections though the food,and the entertainment yeah and the food,um i would probably rate like a three,and a half out of five um my meal was,pretty good,so i would do like four,so maybe at 3.75 altogether,my food was swimming in,the,lightly,cream sauce,or light cream sauce but um overall it,was good,it just um it wasn't fantastic and,that's kind of like what they advertised,on the website but it was good,drinks were great oh drinks were,fantastic service was phenomenal so,you know good experience,the theater experience i'd probably say,it's like a,five out of five for me oh it it's just,incredible i don't i've never been to,something risky,light props a lot of moving of the the,items around but mostly just character,focused everybody knows the story of the,wizard of oz at this point,um but,really well done

Kevin's guided tour of the Alhambra Theatre!

Kevin's guided tour of the Alhambra Theatre!

so we are on stage at the Mort and the,boys are just they're not so this is,just a quick guide of a deal on a chilly,gank as industry as straightforward as,small normal people would think so what,happens is the boys came in every door,was also an engineering Stevie there,Steve Ward's a PA company that we use,and nothing like a Ricky he's a Ricky,does the late and all the guys at school,say to them so they come in up at the,back eight,in fact those looky there so they they,come in they set up the stage what the,band do the anomaly over but half-past,eleven twelve o'clock for a 3-quart,about three years before I fuel we get,there just basically when you come to,something like this you just get a blank,blank stage so we put their razors on,now we connect them all so that are,moving drum kick goes on there for,cutting grass and keys all of those ones,along looks like the bats are gonna be,standing because we are phrases here but,not a major then what you get as oen say,what happens is for here you've got,young and yo these program lights no he,does that please you so he can dictate,what happens or neat song with every cue,and every button piece it goes on to,make the show the chili show but Alvin,and the show kicks in and he's gonna,move to the back so it just it makes it,easier for focus and stuff that so,anyway we'll come back so,and all the cool thing about this this,cake is that we have a pipe and normally,joined us and you're single mate will,really put the paper and we have an,answer on this because,did you know that this is al hombro,paper and retina that's here and this,one by well he would do is like five,star movement and he would just pop up,and go aha,in the middle of the stage so the first,time you did this as well they actually,took her all the seats here and it holds,an extra four hundred people but the,seats have to go back in because of,stole pant work and here's a young man,who owns a building Bell so we're just,talking about has to the cellies here,then it means the one absolutely it's,become one of these local legends and,the is grown and grew over the years,from 2007 was the first one you were,just talking about eighty the December,we were young main so the pleasure and I,smoke so yeah so we've got that's a nice,spot there so you can buy these again,another thing is amazing to think that,over the course of the sixteen years,we've developed the whole product Wayne,and people buy our CDs and t-shirts and,hoodies is just very fortunate that we,managed to come up with a the Chile logo,again I'm not really sure I think it was,just an artist we got to make of a,t-shirt and well that's pretty cool and,there's never really changed much as,probably we are all named let's just die,a remarkable,Twista feat the honest answer so quickly,there,Isis where all the partners all arrived,so we have seats for those suits or,upstairs hope you know it's just ki1 so,this is half way we're gonna get,here we have it the top deck to Royal,boxes as well on US aid and rest in fact,about them rotten for viewing we're,gonna test them in the month,particularly the bottom two because the,PA stacks cut your line of sight and I'm,still a bit so yeah must be played cap,if you get a seat so darling what did,you get me for Christmas I caught you do,your Red Hot Chilli paper stickers and,the rate of the back plate loss nobody,behind you,these would probably live in the best,seats in house actually,really really incredible view of the,speech attached to the test and the PA,system or regulate the system just know,I think I can talk quite a mousou ya,know some years actually in the funny,part is a vlookup this guy there is a,handy sometimes gets a hold off so it,started snowing here and this year look,of terror on people's face when you see,panto snow which is just white flakes,and stuff coming down on them as quick,clearly it is people think on stage you,can't see ever you can actually see,quite a walk coming in the code you can,see people's faces and early actions or,stuff like this honest they're quite,amazing just sent standing on that stage,watching everybody's reaction in here,and as we said and we know 12 o'clock,and fioors team will be 1137 people and,their own this venue let's go on to the,next st the upper royal box again being,honest,what are you even more so late so I'm,staying here to see you but no KL if you,sit yourself down,what can you see nah doesn't do it for,me,you,last port core saw from a distance is,Metz amazing one of the things I'm gonna,do away from being in the chilies or I,already do is I'm very fortunate that I,own apartment s and my company called,Jim Siegel SP engineering people have,come and gone and there's been,opportunities for new people to come in,with new ideas which I believe as I said,probably kept it fresh if we were the,same characters for 16 years it probably,would have finished a long time ago,whereas it's constantly evolving it's,almost no seen as pro where throughput,of people want to
