Went for 'Prom Queen: The Musical' there and was really impressed with the production. High quality performance, great building, very professional and dedicated staff. It was really enjoyable.

I visited recently to see A Thousand Splendid Suns (which was fantastic). I totally love the vibe of this theatre. It reminds me of a mini version of the Princess of Wales theatre in Toronto. Great spot, centrally located. Just wish parking options were better,...More

The interesting stage design of this play, and a recommendation from a theatre director in Calgary, encouraged me to purchase tickets for the Chariots of Fire play. What an ingenious design - they had the track running through the audience and also had a couple...More
