Front Door Catering

Scene Change

Topeka Civic Theatre, the nation’s oldest continuously operated community dinner theatre, has recently revamped their offerings, keeping astute to patrons’ changing needs and desires. These include an earlier curtain time on Friday and Saturday evenings (7:30p), an earlier dinner starting time (6pm), and a new chef / catering company.

The entire season’s menus are online at and feature scrumptious offerings including locally grown butternut squash soup, baked fresh daily split-top rolls and chef carved prime rib. Two alternative dinner theatre options are also available, including brunch for Sunday matinée performances and Food Truck Theatre Thursday. Sunday brunch menus include a wide-variety of offerings from homemade mini cinnamon rolls and quiches to prime rib French Dip sandwiches.

For those attending a Topeka Civic Theatre Mainstage production on Thursday, Food Truck Thursday brings the catering company’s food truck out to serve convenient boxed style dinners consisting of your choice of sandwich and side. Sandwich highlights are their award-winning pulled pork and brisket, unique Cubano on homemade french bread and gooey, yummy, cheesy potatoes. If you have yet to partake in the full Topeka Civic Theatre dinner experience, or if it’s been a while since you added dinner to your performance tickets, the partnership with Front Door Catering gives ample reasons to make it a dinner-and-a-show type of evening. The question is which receives the standing ovation each night? We say both.
