Stage Door Theatre Restaurant is in Arcadia on Magnetic Island. I went there on saturday night and had the most amazing time. The evening consists of a 3 course meal, I had dips and bread, chicken with pistachio sauce and a sort of lemon merengue thing. It was the best meal I have had on the island. In between the mains and the desert Phil and Bernadette put on a show called Forbidden Broadway. It is basically classic broadway songs that people will know, but they change the lyrics and they are so funny. In true caberet fashion they walk around the audience and the jokes are fast and spot on. They also put on a little broadway quiz, which I won! I had to go up on stage and after 3 bottles of wine that was a great moment for me. My favourite moment was Phil dressed up in first a nuns costume, and then as a child from the sound of music. My friend and I were crying it was so funny. It costs $75 per adult with discounts for seniors and groups. They change shows around every 12 weeks with this Forbidden Broadway show continuing until October. Wine costs between $25 - $50, and there is a little bar where you can get your drinks all the way through the evening. The evening was great, the restaurant service was friendly, efficient and fun, and the shows were so professional. I can recommend this to anyone visiting the island on a weekend as the shows are only on fridays and saturdays. This was easily one of my best nights out in Australia.
