Group of us went for our Christmas outing. It was opening night and it really was truly wonderful. The Theater staff were very helpful and very organized.

visited a few different performances and have been impressed with the amateur talent. Shows are well directed and the theatre itself is well kept. The staff in the ticket office are a little short and grumpy but I think they are volunteers.
