On August 14th, the Ellie Caulkins Opera House will raise its curtains for the first big theater event of the season. Colorado’s own Matt Stone and Trey Parker, writers of the popular satire cartoon South Park, bring home the laughter with The Book of Mormon, playing from August 14th to September 2nd. This musical, religious satire depicts two missionaries stationed in Uganda, preaching the Book of Mormon to natives who are too involved in issues such as AIDS, poverty, war and famine to be concerned with religion at all, let alone the foreign concept of Mormonism.
The Rialto Café embraces the theater crowd with open arms, offering a $28, three course, pre-fixe theater menu, free parking after 4:30pm and 50% off select bottles of wine to theater ticket holders.
The introductory course includes the option of our soup of the day, a house salad with mandarin oranges, goat cheese and slivered almonds or a house made Caesar salad. For your entrée, choose between our Fresh Scottish Salmon with creamy goat cheese polenta, tender Beef Short Ribs, Herb Roasted Half Chicken or a Bacon Wrapped Shrimp nicoise style salad. As an encore, try the Red Velvet Layer Cake, Crème Brulee, White Chocolate Cherry Bread Pudding or a Lik’s Ice Cream Sampler.
For drinks, enjoy any of our delicious signature cocktails or, as part of the theater package, 50% off select bottles of wine. Our current selections include:
