“Always fun - love the children's theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

They always put on a great show - lots of hints of humor in the children's shows. We go every summer. Now, instead of first come, first serve, you can order specific seats which means no more waiting on line! And you can get your tickets signed by the actors after the show. So fun.

“I've had 20 years of great musical memories here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

I've been coming to shows here since I was a little girl and I still love it. They put on quality productions with both equity and amateur performers. The summer shows are typically very family friendly, they also have great children's theatre shows for aspiring young performers. The only thing this theatre lacks is live orchestras for their musicals (no orchestra pit, no place for an orchestra). BUT, the shows are put on so well that you forget about this by the time the first scene ends. Tickets are reasonably priced especially considering the number of equity performers in their shows.

“A great theatre by the sea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We have enjoyed several concerts here over the years. Nice place! It's worth checking out who is appearing here while you are in LBI.

“Better than Broadway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

OMG we saw the Sound of Music and were blown away! It was as good as a Broadway show, but small theatre, better ticket prices, and at the beach. The cast was outstanding - the woman playing Maria is clearly a rising star all the way down to the littlest Von Trapp, who stole parts of the show. Highly recommended. We hope to return for many shows in the future. Show Place is a must for ice cream after the performance.

“Peter Pan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

We saw Peter Pan & it was cute. Typical summer stock theater. The adults were actually quite good, but the kids weren't. Plus they need a new sound person. They screwed up multiple times. A few actors mikes weren't turned on on cue & the worst was that twice we could hear them talking to others on their mikes ("There are cookies!?! Your aunt made them?!?").
