We went to see the Bit Players at the Firehouse Theater last Friday evening, and were very happy with the occasion. My wife's college roommate ( a lot of years ago!) who lives in Narragansett recommended this entertainment, and it lived up to every bit of her characterization. The venue is a low rent small auditorium, with maybe fifty seats... More

The Bit Players were great! We brought a bottle of wine and had gotten there about 30 minutes prior to curtain, so we had good seats and could chill out while waiting for the show to begin. We'll consider returning next time we're in Newport!

What a wonderful hidden jewel in Newport! We had reservations for this past Saturday's 8:00 show. What a great group of talented people. We love Improv and Saturdays cast didn't disappoint. The Firehouse offers a nice laid back-comfortable environment. Lots of audience participation. We will definatley be back for more!!!

DEFINITELY a must see!! If you like 'whose line is it', then you'll love the Bit Players @ The Firehouse Theater. It's a BYOB (HUGE PLUS!!) - and general admission seating - very audience interactive and participation is encouraged! 6 improve actors/actresses will have you laughing the entire time (which is about an hour, with a 7 minute pee-break at...

Thanks to the school vacation, they had a kid-friendly Wednesday night show. Nothing fancy about this place, but there is no other place like it. Sit in simple chairs, enjoy beverages that you can bring, laugh and enjoy the show!

Went on a dreary foggy night. The cast was engaging, non threatening and very funny. Laughed the entire performance. If you were a fan of "who's line is it" you will be right at home here. Fun fun fun. Not family friendly - even if they say they are.

We went to see The Bit Players on a very snowy night. The show itself was awesome - extremely funny and entertaining. Not only were there improv skits, but they sang and made up lyrics and melodies on the spot. When we went to leave, we couldn't find our car. Come to find out, we parked on a street that... More
