Note: This event is intended for adult audiences and may contain adult language or situations.

Performance Location

Sandhill Crane Vineyards
4724 Walz Rd.  Jackson, MI 49201
(directions below)

Ticket Price

$35 per person includes the performance and a three course meal (drinks and tip not included).

Planning Ahead

Tickets will go on sale to the public on March 8, 2019 and will ONLY be available purchase on this website or over the phone at (517) 539-4118. Tickets will not be available for purchase at the Sandhill Crane Vineyards.

This event will sell out very quickly and each performance only seats 60 patrons, dinner-theatre style, so we recommend that you arrange your party before tickets go on sale!

Each performance has two tables of four, four tables of seven, and three tables of eight. Orphan seats (purchasing seats in a manner where only one seat is left at a table) are not permitted by our ticketing system. Check out the seating chart on our Dinner Theatre FAQ page.

Important Info about Tickets & Seating

  • The ticketing system will not allow you to select seats in a way that leaves one empty seat at a table (an “orphan seat”). Single seats are difficult to sell! If you cannot find another table that will fit your party without leaving an orphan seat, we recommend finding another guest that would like to attend with you and fill that orphan seat!
  • Tickets will not be available at the door, as this is a dinner event that requires kitchen prep.
  • No tickets will be sold at the winery. Tickets must be purchased online or over the phone only.
  • Ticket sales will end at noon on the day of the performance to give the kitchen time to prep (applies to Friday, Saturday, and Sunday performances).
  • No “performance only” seats are available. This is a local winery and theatre collaboration! Performance and dinner must be purchased together.
  • Seating adjustment: Center Stage Jackson reserves the right to adjust the seating at a table in order to ensure that there are no “orphan” seats. However, we will not split up a party that is purchased with one name or one order.
  • Comp tickets: Center Stage Jackson comp tickets will cover only the price of the performance ($10). Persons using comp tickets must still pay for the price of the meal, $25.

Seating Chart

See the Seating Chart

This is an intimate venue with dinner table seating: tables of seven, eight, and four.

Please note that our ticketing system will prevent you from purchasing a number of tickets that will leave only one seat empty at a table (called “orphan” seats. For example, the system will not allow you to purchase 6 seats at a table that seats 7, as orphan seats are very difficult to sell. If you cannot find another table that will fit your party without leaving an orphan seat, we recommend finding another guest that would like to attend with you to fill that orphan seat! 

There are 60 seats available at each performance. Seating is extremely limited, and, due to the unique dinner table seating arrangement, as tickets are sold it may become difficult to find a table with the number of seats your party requires. With this in mind, we strongly encourage you to secure your tickets as soon as possible!
