The Giggle Dam Dinner Theatre presents a hilarious adventure into the circus. When a group of Canadian accountants inherits a traveling circus, and of course, have no idea how to run it, chaos ensues as everyone, including grandpa, insist on being part of the show. Whether on the flying trapeze or taming the lions, this Circus is so ridiculously funny, it won’t disappoint. Join us March 13 to June 13 for Cirque du So Lame — the musical comedy show that is anything but a real circus!

General Information

General Admission
Tickets are general admission and we seat people according to party size and space we have available. We make a seating plan prior to the event, so each party must sit in their assigned seats. It is extremely important that once your server takes your name at the begging of service that you DO NOT CHANGE SEATS FOR ANY REASON. All our dinner and drink orders depend on you staying in the same seat.

Late Arrivals
We get it, it’s hard to rush home from work, get ready, and get out the door. For this reason, we allow late arrivals and we will save your seats. You may miss your first and second course, but so long as you arrive within an hour from the time doors open, you’ll still be able to order dinner. Calls to say you’re running late are not necessary, just alert one of our Cast that you’ve arrived and we’ll show you to your table. Can’t find someone right away? Just check in with the bar and we’ll take it from there.

Group Reservations for Parties and Groups Are Required
If you’re joining a group reservation, please give the name of the reservation, like “_____’s Birthday Party.” If you haven’t let us know you’re having a party or need a group reservation, please email us right away at boxoffice@giggledam.com so we can adjust your reservations. If we don’t know about your group in advance, you will not be seated together. Your ticket will display the group you’re sitting with. If you forgot to enter the group name, please email us immediately at boxoffice@giggledam.com to ensure you are seated with your group.

Children and Minors
We are a full-service bar and dining room, but we’re not exactly family entertainment. While we welcome anyone over the age of 10 to our performances, our performances do contain adult-themed humor, sexual innuendo, the occasional cuss-word, and other material that may not be suitable for children (or your mother-in-law). Generally, we recommend that children be at least 15, but this isn’t a rule, just a suggestion. Use caution when bringing your children to a Giggle Dam performance.

Seat Changes
Once you have been seated and the server takes your name, please don’t switch your seat — this one is important! If you switch your seat, you won’t get the drinks or meal you wanted and you could wind up with someone else’s bill. In exceptional circumstances, we may be able to allow you to switch your seat. Ask your Server for details.

Food Included in Giggle Dam Performances, Drink and Bar Service Extra
Your ticket to Giggle Dam Performances includes a set selection of appetizers, an entrée of your choice, and a set dessert (yay). You will normally have 5 dinner selections to choose from. See our amazing show menu to learn more about what’s for dinner during the performance — we change our menu with every show! We have a full-service bar and a large alcohol selection. Don’t see what you’re looking for on our drink menu? Just ask! We love custom requests.

Events such as Karaoke, Open Mic Nights, Game Nights, and any Ticket Labeled “Special Event” does not include food with your Ticket. However, we always have a menu of made-to-order food at every Special Event.

Dietary Restrictions
We have menu options for vegans and vegetarians on every menu, as well as custom meals within reason to accommodate dietary restrictions. If you didn’t alert us to your special dietary needs when you reserved your tickets, please email the Box Office at boxoffice@giggledam.com right away so we can gather the details and inform our Chef. We are especially interested to know if you have an intolerance, allergy or are Vegetarian, Vegan, Pescatarian, Gluten Free, or Celiac.

Unlike a traditional restaurant, in general, we serve you for 4 straight hours. There is a huge cast of actors, singers, servers, chefs, bussers and bartenders that come together to deliver your Show or Event experience. An 18% gratuity will be added to your ticket online, as well as your in-theatre service bill. We sincerely thank you in advance for appreciating us!

On Stage and Backstage
Our on-stage appearances are paid for by parties celebrating special events or selected by our cast specifically. We ask that you do not approach the stage, unless you’re dancing on the dance floor, and never go up on stage unless escorted there by a cast member. All of our backstage areas are employees only. We wouldn’t want you to walk in on someone during a costume change — awkward!

There is plenty of parking in Downtown Poco. Here are some convenient places to park:

  • Out Front: There is street level parking in front of the Giggle Dam and throughout Downtown Port Coquitlam
  • Behind the Giggle Dam next to the bowling alley: 2251 McAllister Ave, Port Coquitlam, BC V3C 2A9NOTE: Do not park in the bowling alley’s parking lot. They can and will tow your car. Instead, park in front of City Hall at the City’s parking and walk the half-block over to avoid disappointment.

Getting Home Safe
Remember, we have Uber in Port Coquitlam now – PLEASE DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE OR DRIVE HIGH. The best way to find parking is to leave your car at home and take a taxi or Uber to the Giggle Dam. We care about you and want to make sure you make it home safe. If you require assistance calling a taxi, please see the Box Office at the conclusion of our performance or event and we’ll be glad to assist you.
