we were very impressed with the production of 'blind date'. what a unique and novel concept whereby each show has its own story, new co-star and unique outcome. cudo's to the leading lady who shows off her new co-star in each performance!

The theater is old but beautifully well maintained. No bad seats. The production of Christmas Carol was amazing with many set changes and special effects. The touring company was very talented. We will come back again.

We went with family to see "A Christmas Carol" and were amazed! I have some professional training in, and a lot of amateur passion for drama, and this production matches a lot of world-class theatre. Stratford would be proud of this one! The sets were...More

This is a lovely theatre refurbished to preserve the historic elements. Sight lines are clear with no bad seats. A professional theatre with excellent production values and reasonable ticket prices. Well worth a visit. And there's even an "under grand" theatre with more challenging shows.

Hi Deb W, There is metered parking on nearby streets and a few lots on nearby streets as well. There is nothing right at the theatre though.
