Texas Star Dinner Theater - Unseasonable Greedings

816 S. Main St.
Fridays and Saturdays in November 2019
Thursdays through Sundays in December 2019

“Tis the season to be jolly,” or at least it would be if it weren’t for Newman Marcus Saks V! The greedy owner of the new megamarket in town has robbed everyone of their Christmas cheer! His holiday wish list is completely unreasonable and his demands utterly unseasonable. All Marshal Courtright wants to do is go home, relax by the fire, and await Santa’s arrival. But with a murder to solve, his plans are evaporating faster than a snowman in July.
