The production was delightful, but the theater itself is rather dated and so close to the water that the smell of mold is almost over-powering. If you have allergies, be mindful. Parking is spread out all along the streets and a few close lots, so I would advise taking a flashlight for uneven walkways.

Getting tickets is a little quirky but worth the effort. One person who answers the phone occasionally. The seats were comfortable. We were well entertained and will repeat again next year.

Quaint little local theatre. No 'bad' seats. Very reasonably priced and good entertainment. When I went, the local actors were excellent. Made for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon.

The production was very well done and we will be making our way back to see another production. The cast did a great job and you will be amazed at what comes out of this place.

Small 241 seat theater -- not a bad seat in the house -- wonderful. Each production is so much fun -- the volunteers are fabulous and the evening or afternoon enchanting -- for on ly $20 -- a real bargain

Wonderful time to enjoy community theater and small but very charming!! Every seat in the house is great and the actors are very unique and very talented! Spend an evening here and you will want season tickets. They have usually five plays running Oct-May. Always different and special. Visit the island for dinner or sunset before the show!

Nice building with good seating for all. Good selection of shows. Actors are B level but try hard. Better show than one would expect on a vacation island.

I have seen several plays here while holidaying in Anna Maria, the sets and costumes are superb, the play's quality does depend on the Director although I have never been disappointed. It's a beautiful intimate space, the front of house staff are all lovely. It is community theatre and all run by volunteers, I have enjoyed many plays here, and... More
