Won the "Free for All" lottery and got to see a performance of Othello - wow! Great experience. The theatre was great... not a bad seat in the house. Terrance seating is more like stadium seating, but with high back chairs... very comfortable. You do...More

The STC has a broad offering of performances, not limited to Shakespeare. I saw the production of "The School for Lies", an adaptation of Moliere's, "The Misanthrope". The amazing cast provided us a night of hilarity. I would also point out the costumes and wigs...More
