Got a little pricy, but the cast is great. Very professional productions. Sometimes they gave professionals in the cast. Like John Denver, Cindy Williams. Good shows. Their Holiday Show is always great

We took the children several times to see the children productions and were quite impressed with the talent. The children enjoy the shows and look forward to seeing the characters come to life each week.

I see all the plays and musicals performed at Surflight Theater. The quality ranges from good to over-the-top fantastic. Musicals are my favorite and many can rival Broadway and I'm not kidding. No, I'm not a Surflight employee. The theater holds about 400 people and my favorite seat is in the very middle. Here the music has a chance to... More

We went here during Chowderfest Weekend. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes played. It was a fantastic venue for this show and we enjoyed it immensely. The venue is small. This is what made this show so great. Love the location. Support this great little theatre and enjoy a show there!

While staying on LBI recently, we had the most wonderful evening seeing "Chorus Line" at the Surflight Theatre! Situated in beautiful Beach Haven, New Jersey, this venue is better than the crowds and prices of Broadway. The cast was wonderful! Such talent! Can't wait to return next September!

We have seen at least 6 shows at the Surflight Theatre and every show has been fantastic! The actors are seasoned performers and the venue is small but intimate. After the show the actors all "meet and greet" the audience in the courtyard; a fun experience itself.

First time back to Surflight following change in management and also Hurricane Sandy. Saw Chorus Line. Great show. Choreography and LIVE music were highly professional. The set, dancing and acting were so similar to the production I saw on Broadway that it was very hard to state any difference. I was very much surprised as I up until this point... More

Because of its proximity to New York (I'm guessing), this theater draws some great talent and has very high quality shows. We've never seen anything here that wasn't wonderful.

Went to Surflight tonight to see A Chorus Line. It was fantastic! It's so nice to see Surflight Theatre thriving. It was a packed house! The only negative about Surflight is the A/C is blasting. The theatre is freezing and it's very uncomfortable. Don't forget to have ice cream at Show Place after the show!

My son and I saw John Pizzarelli at the Surflight in July. It is such a great place to see a show. We had an amazing time. We met him after the show. We loved the theatre and will go back there again when visiting LBI.
