"The Kiln" reopened this year after an almost 2 year hiatus. We are delighted this awesome venue is back with us.

Well, a little more rustic than the title implies. But it's a beautiful spot under the trees to hear great music and see great shows. The Bowl (the stage that is open) has a good deal of wooden seating, and plenty of places to pitch your own lawn chair/blanket. (Bug spray recommended.) Food and drinks (including beer and wine) are... More

After a struggle to stay alive, the Theater at Lime Kiln has closed its doors. We share our sadness with many others who hoped the theater would survive, however. and unfortunately, the announcement was recently made that it will no longer be in business.

An outdoor amphitheater in the woods. The show takes place with a background of boulders. It is so awesome. The talent they bring in is excellent. Take mosquito spray and a blanket or stadium seats. We are going back for a Labor Day show.

The title says it all - a wonderful and very special performance space. Saw a bluegrass band performing, The Seldom Scene. Good sound, good sightlines. The Theatre is in financial difficulty and in danger of closing. One hopes that residents of the area and regular patrons do not let this happen.
