“Beautifully restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

James Earl Jones got his start in this theater. It is a beautifully restored Victorian theater with a fantastic ballroom upstairs, which can be rented for weddings...

“Wonderful and romantic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

Take a step back in time at this wonderful theater. My wife and I go to at least one production a year here. Looking forward to our next visit.

“Ramsdell Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2002

The Ramsdell Theater was originally constructed in the 1890s. It fell into disrepair during the 1960s but was made functional again more than twenty years ago. There has been a conserted effort in the past five years to restore the building to its original state. Much of the work has been completed and the theatre has become a jewel of the community. Guided tours of the theatre and the annex are available.
