Janesville’s Armory theater unveils 2007 season

Following the first half of its premiere season, The Armory in Janesville, Wis., has announced its second season of professional dinner theater in the 230-seat Drill Hall Theater.

The 2007 season includes an American icon, a turbulent love story, a hilarious sci-fi spoof, and a holiday family favorite sure to become a season tradition.

“Everyone is sure to find something they like in our 2007 season, which is fun, beautiful and moving,” said Jim Tropp, theater director.

Drill Hall Theater patrons sample elegant cuisine influenced by the production, while enjoying first-class entertainment with actors from around the country. The Armory features a live orchestra featuring area musicians.

Armory owner Mick Gilbertson said: “The Armory is one of the few, if not the only, dinner theaters which has wait staff-served cuisine to all patrons and features live orchestra accompaniment for all performances.”

The Armory

Built in the 1930s, used during World War II by the 192nd Tank Battalion and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the newly-renovated Armory is leading the rejuvenation of downtown Janesville. The Armory offers three distinct dining experiences. The Drill Hall Theater combines elegant dining in a theater setting with professional, musical productions. Modern, casual dining and an outdoor patio are featured in the Bunker Lounge. Contemporary dining is found in the Lieutenant’s Restaurant.
