No need to drive to Boston and pay alot for parking or Providence for that matter when you have the "Z" right in your back yard. And for nearly half the cost. The performances are tops and big name people. There is always such a variety offered to suite most everyone. You can rock in the comfy seets closer to... More

You can't beat the "Z" for local theater, it's as good as going to the PPAC. NB Festival Theater is always excellent. Marchand and Charbonneau are one fantastic team.

My friends and I saw "Fifty Shades Of Grey" it was hilarious! Unfortunately if someone sat in front of you and you were not on the incline of seating in the theatre, it made it difficult to see. The theatre was packed so a lot of shifting from side to side in order to view this play.

This theater, or Performing Arts Center, is an awesome venue. I frequent this center often and have never been disappointed at all. The seats, although some are not the best in comfort, are positioned that there is no bad seat in the place. They have acts for every taste of the arts. Concerts, plays, musicals, comedians, you name it this... More

This is a majestic old theatre, hiding behind a nondescript façade. Inside the architecture reminds one of how theatres used to be. The pipe organ still works, and sounds beautiful. The rows are well-spaced; you are not crowded. We saw The Sound of Music here, and while the cast was good, they were made better by the theatre. Acoustics were... More

Great folk music in a historic theater. If you got bored you can look at the walls and ceiling with last century design.

I love old theatres like this one and I was glad to see it's been saved and restored. It's a great mid sized theatre with comfortable seats and good sound. We were there for the folk festival and saw a couple of acts there. It was a hot day outside and the ac felt really nice too! They are currently... More

I love this venue. Small so that you avoid the large crowds, but still gets big/great acts. Renovated in recent years so very comfortable. Lots of seat room. Great sound. Plenty of parking in the area - garage or street. Lots of nightlife and restaurants in the area for before or after the show.
