“Scottsboro Boys in the middle of the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Marvelous production, price of seats had been reduced for seniors, charming location in the park. But get there early to find a nearby place for your car.

“A playgoers venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

It regularly presents good theatre. The summer is Shakespeare time in the Lowell Davies Theatre (There are 3 theatres here). Often times they will outdoor seminars before a Shakespeare play. They have a small cafe with sandwiches and salads.

“A Must Go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

We have seen several shows here. Wonderful acting, stage design, lighting and costumes. The performers will even pause if a plane flies over! They have blankets if it is chilly (but bring your own, you will be more cozy). You can also pre-purchase drinks (alcohol, hot chocolate, etc) before the show and they will have it set out for you at intermission.

Check out their Shakespear summer!

Very intimate theatre in the round. We saw "Nobody Loves You" which is a musical comedy. The performance was excellent!

“Shakespeare indoors or under the stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

High-quality Shakespeare (and other) plays. A real treat: seeing a Shakespeare comedy on a summer night in the outdoor theater under the stars!
