So the theatre is absolutely perfect in a sense, because it is so intimate and quaint that there's not a bad seat in the place. You have a perfect view of the stage just about anywhere you sit, so for 23$ to see the Game of Thrones Parody it was absolutely worth it. It was very clean and well-kept for... More

Venue was great! Almost all seats were good. The actors were entertaining and had nice voices. Lots of F-bombs dropped, so if that's offensive-avoid this show. In addition, the thrusting of the sex jokes were carried on way too long...the joke ran it's course at about 30 seconds. On the plus side, the lyrics were quite funny...for the most part

We took our three year old grand daughter to see this one-hour musical, based on the clever book she had read. A college-age cast performed a fast paced story in rather unimaginative costumes and amateurish set design. While their singing voices were good, the wireless microphones were poor quality and muffled or distorted their words, making it difficult to understand... More

We had a good time laughing all throughout the performance. They were a saucy, audacious bunch and had us LOAO, a great time for GOT fans. Definitely not for kids or a wholesome family night but hey, that's what our couples night out is for. Well worth the ticket price. We'll be back again for other productions for sure.

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, this show is a must see! Crude laugh out loud humor, great atmosphere, good seats(we were allowed to move closer when the show started). Actors were fun, and the music was fun. Highly recommend this show, and this theater.

If you are a GOT fan and not averse to profanity and bawdy humor, you will enjoy this parody. The show runs about 2 hours with a 15 minute intermission to feed the meter(thank you!) and get a drink. Parking is tight in the area but we were able to park on the street for the 6pm show Saturday. There... More
