Crown Uptown Theatre
3207 E Douglas Ave, Wichita, KS
Choreographer Regina Klenjoski, her dancers and Wichita's Celebrity Chef, Jason Febres, have crafted a Valentine’s Day celebration designed to be a night to remember.
First, there’s dining in the spacious elegance of Crown Uptown Theatre, a beautifully renovated, 1920s-era vaudeville theatre. Febres (chef/owner of former “Taste and See”) offers his famous Latin Fusion Tango Taco Bar, First Street Bakery will whip up divine desserts to tantalize the taste buds and there will be a cash bar to mix up your favorite cocktails.
At 8pm, experience “Duets for My Valentine,” dances created by Klenjoski, that evoke the mystery and drama of romance. RKDC dancers take the stage - but may even sweep by your table at some point – to project passion (“Fire and Ice”), obsession (“Lily and the Scorpion”) commitment (“Lifeline,” an excerpt from the company’s full length work, “Far From Home”) and more. Company members Sarah Frangenberg, Nadia Khalidi, Max Mayerle, Elleigh McClelland, Deiondre Teagle and Makayla Williams portray the many faces of love.
Guest artist, Chad Michael Hall, a Los Angeles artist and former member of Pilobolus Dance Theatre, dances with Klenjoski herself in a playful pairing set to music by Los Angeles composer David Karagianis.
The dance floor opens to all at evening’s end.
Ticket holders can enter to win one of several prizes throughout the night, buy flowers and take advantage of a Mirror Me photo experience by Black Tie Celebrations to seal the memory of their Valentine’s Day experience.
Tickets, priced between $50.00-$62.50 per person, and can be purchased at
or in person at our box office Monday through Friday 10 am – 5 pm, or by calling 316-612-7696.
