“Sometimes funny, sometimes not so much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

I have been to several plays here. Even had season tickets last year. This is a fun way to spend an evening. They even have decent food (loved the pizza). That being said, sometimes the plays are hilarious and sometimes they think references to familiar things are inherently funny. There are several very talented actors and staff. The songs they perform after the play are often as entertaining as the play itself. Overall a decent way to spend an evening but expect content quality to be a bit uneven.

“A great place to waste your time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Time enjoyed wasting is not wasted. I've only seen one show here - the Lone Ranger - but I had a fantastic time. It wasn't broadway. It was fun. Downside- the tables are crammed in super tight and the food choices are eh. But go, catch a show, put on your good attitude and enjoy your life for a couple hours.

“Don't waste your time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I've seen better high school productions. I attended the first act of the Lone Stranger. The sets, props, and costumes (even the makeup!) were very poor quality. Supposed to be a parody, but the jokes fell flat. The theater is cute, decorated in western theme but some of the seating is really tight. Choose your seating carefully and eat before you go. They sell food to help ends meet but only offer concession-style fare. Two soft drinks cost $5.0 and there is no place to park.

“Fun Filled”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I went to see "The Lone Stranger" with family and it was hilarious. At times, I wondered why I could laugh at such silliness.And then, just when I thought it was over, came "swing Thing Olio" This is when the actors come not in character but instead entertaining us with a musical revue
We had a light dinner, which was pretty good.
This is a great place to bring out of towners or to celebrate an event.
