We enjoyed "And then there were none". The cast was wonderful and the theater well thought out. As it is a "who done it?" and we had not seen it before, the character portrayal was such that it added to the question.

This little theatre was renovated but kept it's historic colonial look. The theatre offers several plays each year and all are so well done! It's a lovely little theatre and every show is special and enjoyable!

This Westerly theater has earned the good reputation it deserves and the support of the community. Summer residents list this as one of the reasons they come to Westerly. The shows are mainly proven standards that continue to delight.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful play, From Stage to Screen on Saturday, May 24,2014. This was our first time visiting this theater. We loved the show and such talented singers and dancers; the seats are so comfortable and the theater is just lovely. We'll definitely come back.

A wonderful experience overall - the historic building is lovely, the seats are comfortable, it's air conditioned and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Most importantly, the local casts provide very solid and professional entertainment for a real bargain price. In fairness, most of the plays they perform aren't your well-known Broadway hits, they are usually farcical comedies... More

This is a charming theatre with superb performances. The cast is always at a professional level. It seems to me their specialty is bedroom farces, and they do them so they are hysterically funny. There are never any actors that don't fit, or lines poorly delivered. The lobby of the theatre has a little wine bar and the parking is... More

We have enjoyed going to Granite Theatre for over 15 years. The theatre was renovated about 10 or so years ago and there is not a bad seat in it. We have been to dozens of productions and always admired the professionalism of the artists. Most recently saw the comedy, Boeing Boeing and it had the audience in stitches. The... More

I started coming to performances since my early twenties and I am now in my sixties. My uncle was one of the dedicated artists who performed on this historic old stage from his early years until his unexpected death a few years ago. I learned from him that these artists have a great working relationship and look at the theatre... More

It took just once to fall in love with the Granite. There isn't a bad seat in the house! Well scored and well directed, each and every performance was a jem. Much rather enjoy the Granite performances than put up with the obscene cost of plays in Boston and New York. Plenty of covered, lighted free parking behind the bank,... More
