By now everyone knows that I adore the intimacy of this little community theater. What always amazes me is the wealth of talent that we are blessed with and the performances of this latest play is the proof of that once more. Will Horton not only superbly directs, but also stars as the husband in this great comedy. Michelle Neitzel... More

I cannot begin to tell you how lucky we are to have this FABULOUS talent in our own backyard. This latest theater offering is called "GREETINGS" by Tom Dudzick. Very ably directed by Ron Bupp, with a splendid cast featuring Jack Rabito, Jim Walsh, Ian Bisset, Gloria Bandy and Wendi Scianna. It's a Christmas themed play, but it also displays... More

In the downtown section of sleepy Englewood lies this little playhouse. It seats about 100, and it is a small theater, but the entertainment is big. The sound system is good. Even towards the back rows, visability is decent. I will come back again!

Many of the actors here are snow birds who bring their exceptional energy and talent to make this one of the outstanding theaters of the area. Most of their productions sell out , a testimony of the great value.

Just saw the final performance of "Don't Talk to the Actors" at this small community playhouse. The actors were wonderful and the play itself was well written. Communities are fortunate to have local theatres like this and they should be patronized. There's not a bad seat in this house.

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!

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
