So very sorry to see this wonderful theater close its doors for good. Hoping someone will buy it and keep it going but this doesn't look good!

I wonder who bought it??? I am not sure but i heard they can not take buildings down. It would be great if it was turned into a quaint little shopping village and keeping the theater the way it was.

Better take this off your listings, the theater went out of business and so did their ice cream parlor with the singing waiters. Big loss for the tourists.

I have seen many shows at the theater including musicals and concerts. I have never been disappointed. The theater is small and the view of the stage is great no matter where you sit. The talent is top notch and I always leave having totally enjoying the performance.

Visited Surflight for the first time to see The Wizard of Oz and they really put on a great show. Seats were a good size , but a bit lumpy. Show Prices were reasonable , and the cast of the play hung around after the show for pics and autographs. The kids loved it. Will definitely go back...

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!
