We were down in LBI for 4th of July weekend. We happened to see a poster hanging in local seafood restaurant advertising "Jekyll and Hyde", which is one of my favorite musicals. We had 2 hours to spare, so we got our food to go, hopped in the car, ate in the car and went and bought tickets. Nice theatre,... More

I haven't been to the Surflight theater in many years. I was extremely pleased with the production of " Dr. Jekyl and Dr. Hyde". It was very entertaining with an amazingly talented cast. I would definitely reccommend seeing a production during your stay at LBI.

Just saw "Jekyll and Hyde" It was amazingly wonderful. Beats what I've seen my last few trips to Broadway.

Over the past 2 years we've seen 2 remarkable productions that starred Bart Shatto (A remarkable talent), I heartily recommend an afternoon or evening at the Surflight. The current production of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde highlights not only Bart's magnificent voice, but that of the entire cast and ensemble. We brought a dozen of our friends there yesterday and... More

I had season tickets with friends for many years until Roy Miller took over and practically destroyed the place. Now that he is gone, we go there for probably 2-3 shows a season. Prices have been raised too high. Not much more to go to Broadway with a coupon or rush ticket. Will definitely see 2 shows this year- Fiddler... More

The surf light use to be a great place to go with families. However, keyword" use to be". This place has gone down hill drastically over the years. The tickets go up but the place it's self smells and the sound equipment is horrible. Don't waste your money on the surf light.

Lot of talent at this theatre. I have been there 2 times and it is great having this type of entertainment at the beach. They need the financial support to continue, so I encourage all to go and try it.

My husband, Michael, and I were in Friday night's audience for the "opening night" production of White Christmas at the Surflight Theatre on Long Beach Island, NJ. We had been hesitant to buy tickets for the first performance, preferring to wait until all of the kinks were worked out but it was the only night we could attend. We needn't... More

The children's plays are wonderful. My kids now age 17 have been going since they were 2. The plays are fairly tales with a twist and very entertaining for kids of any age. I have never been to an adult play but the kids plays are fantastic,
