We have been to numerous shows at Port Tobacco Players. They always do an excellent job. we have never been disappointed. The price is very reasonable and the performances are top notch. If you go to one of their performances, I promise you that you will go back.

We have seen many plays at this theater - most all have been first rate! It's a beautiful and old theater with local talent and truly professional in the results they achieve. It's such a fun theater to attend - with an old town feel and a lot of character in the theater itself. You will love it!

Wonderful evening lots of room to see and actors are outstanding. The best people all around. We have several season tickets. Parking is a little tough but well worth the time

I have seen more than five shows here and all were very well done. Everyone is very friendly. One member of my group is in wheelchair and crew is very accommodating. For small theater special effects and quality good at very fair prices.

The Port Tobacco Players have been around here for decades. In fact, in decades past, I have performed with them as a musician. They do about 6 major stage works a season and do a top notch, professional (although they are not) and very entertaining job. They perform in an extensively renovated and expanded former little movie theater and have... More

I've been to about 12 plays here. They are always very high quality and well done. Exceptional value for live entertainment.

My family and I have attended numerous plays throughout the years. I am saddened to say that this play was the Worst rendition of A Christmas Carol I have ever had the displeasure of seeing. Several characters were not well suited for their part. Ghost Marley was NOT convincing or scary, nor was Scrooge. Personally I could not wait for... More

We just attended our first show at the Port Tobacco Theatre and couldn’t believe how good the performance was. They were doing Crazy For you, a romantic musical using music and lyrics from several shows by the Gershwin’s, in collaboration with the Cosmic Symphony, which is a community orchestra from Southern Maryland made up of local professional, semi-professional, and talented...

Not my favorite location to visit but they have a nice size theatre for our area. Whenever something is planned at this theatre I am disappointed and do not want to participate. Notable Items: Street/neighborhood parking and it is VERY limited Seats are some what uncomfortable Snack choices are minimal and expensive
