Theatre Background and Information

Jesters Dinner Theatre is a family-owned dinner theatre. Founded in 1987, they moved into their current intime space in 1999.

This is a community theatre, with a dining space that seats 100 guests. The best tables are in the center. There are tables to the far left and right of the stage, but because the space is relatively small, patrons seated here can see just fine. There is no “obstructed” viewing.

The tables are “stepped” on three levels, which allows all patrons to see the stage with ease.

The menu is a set one. Included in the ticket price are entrees Chicken Cordon Bleu, Chicken or Salmon Salad, Extraordinary Berry Salad, Cheese & and a Vegetable Lasagna.  Entrees with a surcharge are Filet of Salmon, Fantail Shrimp, or Prime Rib. Children’s menu: mini corn dogs, chicken tenders, cheese or pepperoni pizza).  Appetizers and desserts are also available at an extra charge. All drinks (except water) are an extra charge. Adult beverages such as wine and bottled beer are available.

Directions to Venue and Parking Advice

The Jesters Theatre is located in the Historic Downtown Longmont district, at 224 Main Street. It has an adjacent parking lot, and there is plenty of street parking.

There is no large sign along the street calling out, “Here’s the Jesters” and their sign is somewhat hidden below an awning.

Look for a statue of a stylized male figure in the front left of the parking lot – that’s the Jesters parking lot.
