The shows are professional and there isn't a bad seat in the building. There is often a Thursday special of 2 for 1 tickets as the dates grow closer. If the shows are selling out you could miss out getting tickets at all if you wait too long. Be aware it is a gamble.

Make sure you check their website to see what is playing. It was such a fun time and good quality drama and singing. On thursday evenings the tickets are 2 for 1! Otherwise about $22 each.

We have seen a couple of shows here. Always very good performances with a good cast. Very intimate litle theatre and very reasonable admission prices. Tucked back of the main street. Free street parking the meighborhood. The Circle theatre is rite behind it and it is REALLY a intimate theatre. But also fun.

Saw a Beatles tribute and the Buddy Holly Story too. It is a small venue in a quaint setting in Carmel, CA

We really enjoy the theaters at the Golden Bough. Cozy, local, great shows, neat stage and not a bad seat in the house.

I have gone to see shows after shows. This Playhouse is really a Carmel Gem. My daughter's friends Samantha and Alina from River School are often in shows and we like to go and support them.
