A great night's entertainment by quality actors. Sometimes the actors are limited by the plays that are selected but overall when the material is good the performances are great!

The cast is fantastic, the acting simply superb. We are talking MAJOR TALENTS here!!!! The play will run September 3 through September 21. Performances... More

A very small playhouse, which means the show is right in your face. (Which is a good thing) Have been here a few times. Some of the plays are very very good, others are ok. So check before buying tickets and check reviews. Overall a enjoyable evening.

I have hesitated for a long time to go to a play here. We went to the Guthrie in Minneapolis for many years, and I was afraid it would be a disappointment. A friend invited me, and I was pleasantly surprised. The actors did a great job. I enjoyed the play very much. When you consider that it is done... More

Great theatre - well executed Take a jacket - it's cool in here Buy your tickets online - as theatre is small and fills quickly - light refreshments were available for a small donation if you choose to support the work of the casts

We're back near Englewood again. Wanted to see a play this weekend, but it was sold out, so we bought tickets for the next show. On Saturday, about ten to seven we got a call from the playhouse, "Would we like to see tonight's show? Can you make it by 7:30?" Of course we could make it, and saw "The... More

Lemon Bay Playhouse is true community playhouse. All volunteers actors, technicians, and ushers. I saw The Good Doctor enjoyable. The opening curtain speech was to long all this information is in the program just great the people tell them where the exits are and start the show.

The only difference between this community theater and a professional theater is that the actors at Lemon Bay playhouse are not paid. All volunteers. The talent is equal to or often surpasses so called professional theaters. For an intimate and bracing performance make sure you visit this remarkable playhouse.
