We have frequented the MCT over the years, mostly for comedy and drama productions...we were leery of amateur musicals. Boy were we wrong! The theater is always great, every seat is a great one. But the production of DRS was magnificent, funny and wildly entertaining....More

We go a few times a year and always love it. It is small theater but they always put on a quality production. Even you aren't crazy about a show the quality of the actors is never disappointing. We will be back.

We go to plays at Melbourne Civic Theater whenever we are in Melbourne during their season. Last week we saw the hilarious “Funny Money!” Since they often sell out, tickets should be bought well in advance.
