About Bethlehem Inn

Bethlehem Inn
An Interactive Musical Dinner-Theatre Production

Celebrate Christmas by being served a delicious 5-course meal 
while we entertain you and delight the senses.

Bethlehem Inn is abuzz with excitement. The "No Vacancy" sign has been displayed for the first time in years, due to the census.  Each guest will receive a gold coin to deposit and enter the Inn. As you are greeted by Sol and Leah, the Innkeepers, you find their family is not accustomed to having so many guests, and the situation becomes quite comical from the beginning. The family and townsfolk serve the guests their different courses of the meal, making the guests a part of the action. 

With an engaging plot and enchanting characters, mystery, drama, comedy, intrigue, music, action, humor, and a real sense of life in the year 1 BCE all reveal a theme…"Where is your Treasure?"  More arrivals at the Inn, three well-heeled wise guys, a Roman soldier, the Rabbi, and more travelers there simply isn't room amidst the crowd enjoying each course through dessert and some real theatrical wonder.

Don't miss making BETHLEHEM INN  a new tradition for your family. 

Limited tickets available (only so much room at the Inn!
And only at Family Fun Xperience Theatre in Virginia Beach, in cooperation with Theatrix Productions.

Plus a selection of drinks (wine available). Vegetarian option offered also.

 "...for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also...". (Matthew 6:21)

Xperience the amazement and wonder this Christmas of being in the middle of where it all began (or at least right next door to the stable!) Join us at FFX for a completely unique theatrical treat. Bethlehem Inn, directed by Rocco and Kathi-Lee Wilson of Theatrix Productions, has been a sold out event over in past years around Virginia Beach. Now you get to experience Bethlehem Inn, an immersive feast for the eyes  ears and mouth, re-imagined this December as a section of FFX Theatre is transformed. Go back over 20 centuries to plunge into the crowded inn run by a wonderful family with no small amount of drama and antics, and with a cook that has prepared a wonderful feast for you. Are more visitors arriving? Where will they put them?
