I've attended plays at Ed Fletcher's Early Bird Dinner Theater on several occasions with both family and friends. Every time the dinners have been delicious with a variety of choices from which to choose and the plays are hilarious, touching, and always entertaining!!!

Over the past few months my wife and I have become regulars at the Early Bird. It is easily the best deal in town for the quality of food and professional show.
