The Balcony Stage was the second stage created for Pizza Time Theatre.
History and InfoEdit
The balcony stage debuted in 1979 at the San Jose, California location, and originally had Foxy Colleen as a guest. It had all 5 characters in half bodied form. From left to right, the characters were: The Warblettes, Munch, Jasper with his banjo, Chuck E. Cheese, The Guest Star, and Pasqually with his squeeze box. Underneath Munch and Pasqually were entrances to the tunnel and strobe light world of "Mr. Munch's Madhouse". However, many locations had begun to block the entrances in the late 80's due to the poor conditions inside.
The Clapper Board and Band Board also sat on the walls beside Pasqually.
In 1983, all locations installed Helen Henny on the stage after she became a permanent character.
In the late 1980s, most Balcony Stages were phased out in favor of the C and Rocker Stages. The rest were converted into 2-Stages, 1-Stages, and Road Stages, which mainly consisted of placing the existing animatronics atop a new assembly (mostly legs), as well as giving Jasper and Pasqually new arm assemblies and redressing all of the animatronics to resemble their 3-Stage counterparts.
The last known Balcony Stage was in the old Lake Forest, California Chuck E. Cheese's location until 2001 when the location closed down and relocated to Laguna Hills.
However, a Balcony Stage (with the Cyberamic Warblettes, the Broadway-era Helen, Mr. Munch, and Jasper T. Jowls) has recently been spotted on display at Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, located in the city of Detroit, Michigan.
