We went to see the Rhino's production of "Joseph and he Technicolor Dream Coat" in mid-March. Wow - beautifully done! Every aspect was excellent, from the cast, the sets, the music, and staging. This is typical of my experience with the Rhino Theater. I have now seen about a dozen productions, and all have been good or excellent. The Joseph... More

Loved the high energy performance of "FOOTLOSE". The performance, costumes and staging were of a high standard. The performances at the theater run the gamut from professional to local talent which at times is impressive. It's a relatively small intimate theater. The main stage is upstairs on the second floor. They have a call ahead system for stair climbing which... More

This theater although not an off Broadway caliber theater is a great value and we've seen a few plays over the years they always deliver a fun show. And unlike Broadway you don't have to get a loan to afford tickets

We watched Gene Ferrari tonight go through the romantic music and he was very good. The theater was really homey and nice place. Carmela and her husband Ken own the place and partnered with Joanne and they are doing a great job keeping the town alive. The sound could have been better, but it wasn't Ken's fault.

I have seen a few productions here, the most recent The Scarlet Pimpernel. The performances, the staging, the cosumes--everything was top notch. I expected a decent night out; I got a splendid evening at the theatre.

Went with a group before Christmas to see Shrek the musical..It was so well done I wanted to take my grandchildren to see it. I will definitely attend another show, especially if it's children's oriented. Great place to take the kids!

Wonderful acting and music, incorporating people from the community, including the occasional talented child. Not very accessible if you're handicapped, but a pleasure to go. A bit expensive.

We have visited the Rhino theater on several occasions and have really enjoy their shows. The productions they present are well done and enjoyable. They do have special shows geared towards families with young children. One problem I would mention, there is no elevator but they have a lift that makes it possible to get upstairs. The theater is small... More

We recently saw a performance of Shrek the Musical at the Rhino Theatre. The cast was so good and the show was very well done! The only note that I have is that there were quite a few people taking photos and possibly video during the production. People were standing in the entrance to the theatre seating area which is...
