Ryan & Friends
All Laughs • No Moving Lips!
Your whole family will be rolling in the aisles when Ryan takes the stage with a colorful cast of friends that includes Jeffrey, a witty 8-year-old kid and self-proclaimed star of the show; teenager Tiffany, who’s taken with worldly goods; Harold and Irene, who have way more opinions than your average grandparents; and, of course, Ardy the Skunk, who has lots of common “scents” and is always a hit with young and old alike. Expect songs, snappy comebacks and a whole lot of wisdom from an entertaining bunch of dummies.
This lighthearted program from Ryan & Friends combines a comedy routine and song parodies in styles ranging from country to Broadway – all featuring popular comedian, ventriloquist, musician, and all-around funny guy, Ryan and, of course, his friends.

We are excited to present high-quality live entertainment on our stage once again. So everyone has plenty of room to spread out, we are limiting attendance at each show to less than 50 percent of capacity – well within recommended guidelines.
Seating is by general admission. If you purchased tickets prior to July 2020, or if you note your preference when purchasing tickets, we will do our best to honor your seat selections while seating your household members at least 6 feet from other parties. We ask guests to arrive early so that we may get everyone comfortably seated before the show begins.
We have enhanced our cleaning schedule, thoroughly cleaning the theatre after each show and frequently sanitizing high-touch surfaces. Hand-sanitizing stations are available throughout the theater. Our ventilation system brings in fresh outside air.
For the safety of all our guests and employees, masks required in common areas/lobby but not in theatre seats and required in our restaurant dining room. We ask everyone to practice physical distancing of at least 6 feet from non-household members.
If you are not feeling well, kindly call to reschedule your reservation.

“Saw this show the day before Mother’s Day. One of The members of our group joined him on stage. Even before he joined him we laughed the entire time, cried a little too. Ryan is quick-witted, and an absolute character to watch. We had so much fun going to his show. Who would have ever known that some man in a little theater with puppets would have brought us so much joy? Love that he includes the audience in his show, and sang a beautiful song. Go see Ryan and friends, Comedy Calamity, I promise you won’t be disappointed. Our group of eight wasn’t.”

Harold & Irene are a couple of hilarious older folks who aren’t shy about sharing advice on topics ranging from iPads to iHOPs. Wherever they go, they’re fan favorites.
A giggly blond teenager, Tiffany has a naïveté and a fondness for all that’s superficial and gives us a good laugh. A new addition to the cast, she’s not as silly as she seems….
A country critter who has had his fair share of run-ins with vehicles and over-zealous animal lovers alike, Ardy is a hit with fans of all ages.
