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

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening! The play "Mama Don't Fly" was funny with lots of laughs. The theatre is very intimate with only 7 rows. The actors were all great, with good comedic timing and interaction, and easy to hear and understand. The lady at the box office was most helpful in guiding us to good seats, although I don't...

Finally got tickets to this theatre, and We were sadly disappointed. The stage and costumes were fine, but the acting was not. Very Very disappointed, I have been to better high school productions..

nothing wrong with non-professional so long as there's a professional attitude, and there certainly is here, enhanced by a small but not cramped theater from which every word and every motion is well conveyed to all but the most auditorially and visually challenged

Small theatre puts on about 10 plays a session. All are very entertaining and enjoyable. The actors are usually local residents.

We went to see "Until Beth Do Us Part" and it was hilarious. Well acted and directed -- apparently all by volunteers. The theatre is small and comfortable and probably not a bad seat in the house.

Perfect for a nice evening at a well run community theater after a walk on the beach. We have seen a performance or two each of the last 5 years and have always enjoyed the play and the experience. We've never been disappointed and look forward to seeing as many performances as we can each year. Nice roomy, comfortable seats... More
