We love this small theater. Every seat is up front and makes you feel like you could interact with the cast. Great location within walking distance to many great resturants in St Charles.

Second floor, tiny theater. You can't get closer than this to the actors and the stage! Every seat is a good one. Each play I've seen there has been very enjoyable. Lots of before theater restaurants nearby. Good parking.

We live in St Charles and have season tickets so we are biased. Tiny, tiny theater so you can really see the actors. Quality of the acting is reasonable--in line with what you are paying. We enjoy it and would reccomend it.

This theater is so small, you would never believe it until you see it... Three and a half rows of seats! The actors are no more than a few feet away from you - so, you can see each and every grimace they make. Family...More

The theater itself leaves you wondering what you have stepped in to, but the quality of the shows are outstanding. And it is a very very small venue, so there are no bad seats. It was a great evening.
