A stay at home Mum who doesn't stay at home much; too many exciting things to be discovering in this city...

Your VIP theatre experience awaits
Two of my favourite things - dinners and shows! Was there ever a pair more worthy of attention? Dinners and shows fit together like peas and carrots, cheese and crackers, or salt and pepper (the condiments, not the band…). And now Tour Local have them nicely packaged up in a VIP experience just to make life really easy for you.
Tour Local is a tour and charter company for whom no job is too big or too small. It's a family owned and operated company which was founded in 2008. They offer all sorts of outings and tours including destinations and events that span a few hours to a few days. Their Dinner & A Show packages range in price depending on which show you select, but begin at around $165. Whichever show you see, you are guaranteed an A class ticket to the show, lunch or dinner, wine or beer, local transport to and from the event (more on that later) and some goodies to snack on during the show.
Shows that are included in this package obviously change regularly but at the time of writing included: Elvis – King of the World showing at Palms at Crown, with a two course dinner at Emporio Pizza and Pasta, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory showing at Her Majesty's Theatre, with a Theatre Lunch in the Hayden Room comprising canapes and finger food, and Chicago showing at the State Theatre, Melbourne with a buffet dinner. Good old Hugh Jackman was also an option but has sadly already sold out – tearful emoji. To check on current shows, click here.
Transport to and from the venues is designed for those living a way out of Melbourne City and Tour Local operate mainly in the south eastern regions of Victoria. There are 4 main pick up points – located in Cranbourne, Narre Warren, Warragul and Packenham (not every package includes every location) - although if you book for a large group you may be able to designate your own pick up point. To make a booking, you can call the Tour Local office on (03) 5941 8800 . Payment for Dinner & a Show packages must be made within 24 hours of booking.
