The Student Entertainment Company
Has been entertaining student groups since 1994, first as the Student Dinner Theater and then as Student Dinner Entertainment. As our company grew, so did our production offerings and we eventually out grew our company names! We went from solely theatrical productions combined with dinner, to charitable, educational and just simple fun events. Currently we entertain student groups with Customized Game Shows, High tech Scavenger Hunts, Glow in the Dark Dance Parties, Teen Improv Nights, Comedy Hypnosis, Charitable events, Speakers & More!
We know your students. We pride ourselves on always creating and offering events and programs that are suitable and appropriate for the student population. The majority of our programs are suitable for grades 5 thru 12 with newly added programs for college students and interns. All programs are written and created with the knowledge that we have to keep students attention for 2-3 hours, keep them moving and engaged.
Our first production was in Boston, MA in 1994. Our producer, Wendy Goldstein, was working in an administrative capacity at the Mystery Café in Boston. Student Groups would come to the dinner theater and absolutely love the experience.
The chaperones/teachers however, would leave thinking the production was a bit over their heads! So, our producer came up with the idea to create a show that was just performed for student groups.
Our first production was Beverly Kills 9021 UH OH! This was a spoof on the ever so popular television show Beverly Hills 90210. Students and their teachers loved the concept, kids would be involved using clue and bribe $$, and teachers could sit back a bit relaxed that no inappropriate innuendos were being used. It was a win-win. From there, a student tour operator suggested we open in Williamsburg, VA. “There is absolutely NOTHING for student groups to do at night there”. So, two years later we were in Williamsburg, and then expanded to Washington, DC and then to other large east coast cities.
Initially we limited our events to specific cities. Our current goal is to entertain student groups of all kinds, anywhere; be it if you’re touring a city with your classmates, or celebrating a 16th birthday. We want to make sure all student group activities are fun, clean and kids are entertained and involved.
We now consider ourselves to be experts in the student entertainment field!
“EPN Travel Services has been working with the Student Dinner Theater for over 15 years. As a Student Tour Operator, it is always nice to find a vendor that understands the needs of the students. They want a fun activity, Ex. Glow in the Dark Dance Party…and a nice dinner. Also, the teachers & chaperones can relax and enjoy the fact that the students are in one spot. I highly recommend The Student Dinner Theater for your groups.”
