National stars come to this playhouse and give us a taste of the big city! Wonderful place for friends to meet and enjoy a relaxing evening out.

Having attended this venue on multiple occasions, I find it to be small and intimate when seeing a show. From Ed Asner in a one man show on FDR, or a tribute to John Lennon to children's theatre Cinderella we have no complaints. It's worth the trip to see something at The Kate!

Great venue to see a show. Yo can get pretty up close and intimate. Good parking, good restaurants/bars nearby to walk to before or after show. Can clear seats in front for dance floor. Serve wine in intermission. Very clean and aesthetically pleasing, though simple - but tasteful.

Great theatre with an ever interesting line up of shows. The staff are very friendly and the space is small so every seat is a good one! If you're in town check out one of their shows. You wont be disappointed.

This is lovely space in a converted building on Main Street. There is a great display of Kate memorabilia in the lobby because she summered nearby. Friendly staff. A triumph of small theatre/live music.

They do it all - comedy, music, and drams from the famous to the relatively unknown, punctuated by screenings of Katherine Hepburn films. Go on line to check out the schedule - there is something for everyone.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of seeing several shows at The Kate. Every seat is excellent in the small theatre, the balcony included. The sound has always been excellent as we have seen several musical acts here, and an excellent sound system is very important! There is a little museum of sorts in honor of Kate. There... More
