Cornwell’s Dinner Theatre opened in the fall of 1987. The idea was to get people to stay longer, so that Turkeyville would be a destination for more than just a meal. That was over 30 years ago and now the dinner theatre is host to over 40,000 guests in the 47 week season, which always includes great family entertainment. They feature actors from all over the United States and offer a variety of performances.
