Really, a must-visit attraction. Reasonable prices. We saw Tuesdays with Morrie, which was well-performed. I always thought the author of the book (Mitch) was self-absorbed, and the play is true to the book. Fortunately, Morrie comes across as a character you would have like to...More

Very small theater, but great performances. It is next to, but not on the Mississippi. Restaurants and marina. Probably the best theater, performers and performances in the area. Well worth the time to take in play.

Excellent talent brought in every summer for their plays. Good selection for all ages. Love how they intern local students from high schools around our town.

There is not a bad seat in the house. Very quaint and comfortable setting for excellent viewing of first class plays and musicals. "Cats" was absolutely outstanding. It was almost as if we were onstage with the performers,and their rendition was remarkable.
