This is a gem with outstanding shows in an atmosphere that is second to none. Here you will see top notch artists in what feels like your living room. It is run entirely by volunteers who do a great job. Don't miss this great venue.

I wasn't sure what to expect since it is in Frankfort, which doesn't have much to be the capital of the state. It is a nice place and has lots of different shows and entertainers throughout the year. We sat in the balcony and could...More
