Love the entertainment, and the pre-order drinks and food for the break is brilliant, our drinks were waiting for us at our table when we came out during the break.

This is a reconverted turn of the century school who's exterior was kept as a heritage building. It was added to in the back to make up the stage and seating area and hosts numerous amateur plays throughout the year.

Wonderful theatre with professional productions. The sound quality, seating and service is great. It is an intimate theatre and we attend a few plays a year.

Great from beginning to end. A lot of good talent up on that stage. I don't know how they keep up the energy. Recommended it to everyone we met.

Every time I go, I am so impressed with the shows - how everyone who is involved with the theatre mingles with the guests...the place co-creates a fabulous experience for each patron. Will always return again and again.

The play was excellent. The house was only about a third full, which was good for a very rainy, cool Tuesday night. The two actresses were able to change gender, age and nationality to fill out the many roles, but it was always easy to follow.The theatre itself was really comfortable. I was towards the middle back, and had no... More
