My first visit to Baldwin Theatre and what a fabulous one! I was really surprised by the talent on stage, and to think they were not paid actors, but volunteers. They were excellent actors and actresses. The costumes were fabulous as were the stage sets. I will definitely be back!

First the theater is gorgeous. There is a restoration committee who has restored this treasure to it's glory days. Second - the plays are amazing, AMAZING! The performance/actors take your breath away. Third the staff loves what they do and it shows. When in town I highly recommend you visit the Stagecrafters Baldwin Theater.

Although the shows can be a little uneven, they are often really excellent. For example: the production of "Les Miz" was the best I've ever seen and I've seen professional touring companies several times. Other shows have tried very hard and are quite good, but do suffer a bit from the limited stage and of course the fact that none... More

I've been a Stagecrafter's season ticket holder for several years and have seen many wonderful productions. The theater is comfortable and the local theater groups are amazingly talented. We usually have dinner at one of the local restaurants then walk over to the Baldwin. It a wonderful evening out.

Just saw my second main stage production by Stagecrafters -- Les Mis. Wow. The production values were high. Not a really big stage, but they found a way to depict most every scene very well. Even had the echo type sound when in the sewers. How they found GREAT folks to play Valjean, Javert, Fantine -- beats me. The latter... More

We saw "Curtains" last year and decided to purchase season tickets this year. Well we just saw the production of "Les Miserables" - it was wonderful. As good as any Broadway production. Saw Lion King at the Fox last year and it was so uninspiring and pedestrian - could not believe all the hoopla regarding that musical and tickets were... More

These productions are well done and there are a variety of plays presented. We have seen both the adult casts and the children's productions. The theater is small and historic and the feel is "homey".

The theatre was well kept for age, I guess it was recently renovated. Bathrooms are new and nice. Seats are pretty comfortable for a theatre. The ticket price was reasonable.

I am always impressed with the musical productions at Stagecrafters. The costumes and talent are far above what you would expect from community theatre. The theatre is small enough that all seats are good and the ticket price is an excellent value for the quality of entertainment.
