We bought their summer series . It's wonderful to see local talent. The theatre isn't much but presents a small intimate experience. It was is wonderful to be greeted by the performers at the show's end.

The theatre is very intimate at 160 seats which made for a very exciting theater experience...The ticket price at $25.00 can't be beat for such an amazing night... More
