Great venue

Small, very intimate seating. Great to see a play or music as there truly are no bad seats. Have to watch for performances as they often are not there long.

We went to see My Fair Lad there and it was very good. The cast was talented, the staff friendly and the venue comfortable- and a great value

Many of the plays are "just as they were written". But some have had changes to the verbage that can be pretty embarassing for some. I took four middle aged couples to one play and it was all around embarassing for all of us. The best advice is call up and ASK if the play you are planning to see... More

This is community theater, not Broadway or even The Fox in Atlanta. But, it's fun for an afternoon with the family.

This was my second visit to this theater. The first was to listen to musicians. Great experience. This was to introduce my 7&10 year old children to their first theater show: Cats. Very intimate theater. Really felt part of the show. Any seat is a good seat. It is in a previous gym of an old school house. The school's... More

99% of the plays we have seen have been great. Red Skelton was nice in all the information they told, but the lines for the play were on cue cards on the floor. Somebody was not prepared for this play.

Food was ok at best. I had a steak. It was cooked as ordered but had no flavoring what so ever. The atmosphere was more formal than most.

We've attended 3 plays here. It is a small quaint theater so you feel very connected to the play. We were pleasantly surprised and look forward to attending another performance. They sell drinks during intermission in a side room that is beautifully painted. Love the history here too! We always eat dinner downstairs before the show at Tam's Backstage Restaurant.

Seating for around 100 people make this small intimate theater fantastic. The unique construction has no posts to block view. Easy to hear the actors. Up close view puts you in the action. Recommend for kids.

Went to see Cat's with my 10yr old, it was well done by a group called RISPA . The cast was predominately youngsters from about 11 to 16 years old. I have seen Cats in London and on Broadway These kids would give them a run for the money. The theater is small, so not a bad seat in the... More
