Written and directed by Resident Artistic Director, Michael Brindisi and choreographed by Tamara Kangas Erickson, the musical program is sure to provide fans with plenty of laughter and maybe even a few happy tears. Brindisi said, “Fifty years is an incredible milestone, we can’t cover it all but we can promise it will be a nostalgic sampling that our audiences will really love. It celebrates who we are.”
A Minnesota treasure, CDT remains one of a handful of professional dinner theatres in existence in the United States. In addition, CDT is the largest privately-owned restaurant in the State of Minnesota and one of Minnesota’s premier musical theatre companies and tourist attractions.

Brindisi continued, “We know that many of our guests have visited us to mark their own milestones and we’re humbled to be part of making those memories for them. This marvelous place, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, is a gift to us and our greatest desire is to keep it going for everyone who loves it as much as we do. It’s such a privilege.”
