There are 2 B Street Theaters- one is the Children's Theatre and next door is the adult theatre. Both serve top-notch experiences in comedy and drama. The present theatre is next to the railroad tracks which makes for some interesting sound effects- I will miss that when the new theatre opens this year (?)

This is a small theater (actually a teaching stage), so small stage with big feel. I've been here a couple times for short and unique stage plays. Very up close & personal. We can dress casual and be relaxed. Great price, easy parking. Together with dinner it makes for a fun evening without going broke.

My wife and I have been here several times before and have not been disappointed yet. Kurt Johnson and Melinda Parrett Did a fantastic job of keeping you in the play trying to figure out what was going to happen next. We have seen Kurt a few times before and first time for Melinda but we love them both and... More

This one was no exception. We're season subscribers so spoiled. But this cast had 2 new players we don't recall seeing before. As usual, it was different and thought[provoking. If you're interested in being lulled by entertainment, this isn't the place to go.

Subscribed this year for 7 plays. We saw an excellent comedy ELMNO Pea. The seats were excellent and the prices very reasonable. The theatre is old and small. It's a teaching theatre. They are breaking ground later this yer for a new, modern and larger facility. If you like live theatre consider B Street.

We've gone to the B Street theater sporadically over the past 25 years. It has grown in both physical size and depth of performance. Every show we've seen at the B street has been of top quality in terms of acting and production. We appreciate the B Streets presence and look forward to its continued growth and popularity.

Do not allow the small size of the facilities to discourage you. The B Street Theater provides a full size theater experience. I believe they are planning on expanding in a few years; hopefully will be able to transfer the ambiance to their new quarters. In my most recent visit I attended a mid-morning play (Beauty and the Beast) with... More

I've been an annual subscriber since I moved to this area in 1997. It's one of the least expensive evenings out one could hope for. The variety is endless, and Buck Busfield always throws in one of his own original shows each year. The theatre is small, up close and personal. There are NO bad seats! Wednesday evenings the interns... More

Sometimes I feel a bit like I don't fit in when I come to a play here, because the majority of attendees are probably retired. Still, the plays they do show are very entertaining for my age group as well so I don't regret going in the slightest. My favorite part about this theater is that it is so small,... More

Excellent small theater in the round featuring many original plays by professional actors. It is run by Buck & Timothy Busfield. Every play we've attended has been worthwhile.
