This was the first time we attended a show ("The Skulls of Connemara") but it won't be the last. This small theatre packs a punch. The acting was superb, the set was well-designed, and the production was great.

First time here. I had never been here before, and did not even know it existed, as I am rarely in Golden. Located upstairs in a building in Golden, it seats maybe 100 people. I went to see "My Name Is Asher Lev," which was...More

Just discovered Miner's Alley, thanks to a very positive review of their "My Name is Asher Lev" play. This is a wonderful venue! Many small theatre are inside very old churches - often charming but sometimes musty and funky seating. This is a very small...More

I believe A/C is a requirement in a closed space. Is there is a law to support that. Miners Ally Playhouse does not use A/C
