The performances never disappoint. If you didn't clap and sing along-check your pacemaker! The theater is just the right size and we enjoy it a lot.

I very selectively attend shows that appeal to me and have not been disappointed. The theater is very small and I prefer seats on the riser.

As always we enjoy their productions. Seating is great. Usually they have musicals but this was a play which we had seen before at another venue. Quite a treat. The acting and sets were amazing. Try to catch it before it is gone.

I was lucky enough to be invited with friends to this venue in the past...but this season I purchased my own season tickets! This theater never disappoints! Live theater, very affordably priced with outstanding actors & actresses along with great vocals! Well worth the time...More

Can't tell you how much fun we had listening to songs of our teen years and singing along. They had an audience participation number and we all had a great time. The performers are great and we always have a lot of fun.

Even though we didn't know the songs, the productions was interesting and wonderfully funny. The entertainment is always top notch and the actors resumes are impressive. Recommend.

I went with a group of residents from the community I work in and it was a delightful time! The theatre was amazingly accommodating and such a sweet setting. It is small and intimate ... no problem hearing or seeing from anywhere in this theatre....More

Didn't know what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. They had a huge cast and all were quite polished singers. Didn't know many of the songs but it was entertaining, that is why we go.
