This theatre is gorgeous with very comfortable seating and good viewing from every seat. An excellent choice of performances for every taste. Three of us visiting the area enjoyed the show very much and the ticket costs were reasonable.

This is an excellent theater with a varied calendar of events. We enjoyed a piano concert, "Three Steinways, Six Hands". We will be returning in February to see "The Scottish International Military Tattoo".

Little theater, big voices, great scenery. Lots of fun on a stage. Draws from the valley as well as beyond for incredible talent.
