I have seen several performances at the Ansonia in the past couple of years, but this summer's performance of Once on this Island was beyond anything I have ever seen in a community theatre. It could have been a Broadway production. It was that level of quality. The lead female could be doing musical theatre for a living! I'm not being the least bit hyperbolic; she was that good as a vocalist and actor. A show like that is so much more than a single person, however, and all of the actors, set designers, lighting and sound people, and of course, one incredible director deserve respect and appreciation for such a wonderful job. To think that all of these people volunteer to do this, spending incredible amounts of time just out of a love for doing theatre, is amazing. Not every show I have seen there in the past couple of years has been as noteworthy, but neither I nor my wife has ever been disappointed. I just think the Ansonia is a wonderful venue, tucked away in a place you would never expect to find it. A hidden gem, indeed!

My very first was being able to watch GodSpell and my thought of it was phenomenal. I have tried to make it to every play and musical since. (And might I add) I have to say that every single one of them has been spectacular and moving. From the props, acting, singing, and costumes, you can tell how much everyone puts their heart into it. Every show the cast seems to act like a real family and it radiates. That's what makes a theatre, the bonding and friendships. So many local theatre's are dying out however, this one will forever hold a piece of my heart and many others. The building itself has a story to tell, and it's one to remember. I would encourage anyone and everyone to visit the Ansonia Theatre. You may enjoy yourself more than you know, so take the time to visit this family friendly theatre. Kudos to the very well maintained business!

Having the Ansonia Theatre restored is like having a piece of my childhood back and now it's a place that we can share with our children.

Would love the have the 21/2 hours of my life back! Poor acting, poor singing and poor dancing. Story written on basically a fourth grade level. Save your money!

Always a great show with local talent! Restored from an old movie theater, they have done a beautiful job bringing it back to life! Seats are a little snug for a bigger person and slanted a little, but not a problem when sitting with family! Don’t miss a show if you’re nearby!

I have seen many live performances at this beautifully renovated community theater and all have been extremely well done. This is a great place to view live entertainment, whether it is a touring musical group, a local community play, or a traveling professional performance. This theatre is truly a hidden gem and is well worth the short ride from one of the surrounding metropolitan areas.
