We do our best to see every production. The only thing that can hold us back is the weather, primarily during the Christmas show. Mel runs a phenomenal theater. As long as Mel is there, you can be certain that the entertainment will be best in class. The gleam in his Mel's eyes tells you just how much pride he... More

These guys put their heart and soul into everything they do. We have been to numerous shows and they never disappoint. It's really fun and totally worth the price. We take out of town visitors and they love it. They are also really cool about kids coming.

Very authentic Victorian melodrama, carrying on the tradition from the 1800's. Also, very reasonably priced shows.
