A cozy and comfortable setting in the basement on P street. Original plays performed right in front of you. At intermission you are provided (at no charge) with various desserts, coffee and teas of your choice. A perfect place to go alone, date night, friends or groups.

This is a hidden jewel in the Sacramento theater community. It's like sitting in front of an old time radio, but here you get to watch the radio plays being performed. Their performances are irregular, so check their website for a current performance schedule.

The Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre is a hidden gem in Sacramento. The theatre produces original works in this tiny basement theatre. The plays are always entertaining and feature scripts by local authors. Tom and Ellie, the proprietors, and gracious and make you feel at home. The desserts and coffee/tea at intermission makes for a really nice night out!
