“Top notch productions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Professional productions, nice theaters (there are three of them in all), good sets, a mixure of types and styles of plays, and pretty reasonable prices. Recommended. We often have season tickets.

“Like going back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

It's outside theatre be sure to wear something warm it does cool down at night. They do provide blankets for you. The bar is ok Would be nice if they allowed you take a drink with you. After all some of the more prestigious theatres in London allow a cocktail during the show. We really enjoyed the show and will go back next summer.

“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.
