Thanks for the glowing review! The Ship cast and crew this season also has post-show drinks at the Black Rock on Friday nights! The love for it is mutual!

We loved it! It was our first time seeing a performance at the theatre but it won’t be our last. Casual yet professional.

Going to Ships Company Theatre while visiting Parrsboro is an absolute must. This small community theatre is a real treasure, and this seasons "Pugwash" is a real winner. The cast and production was wonderful - a well deserved standing ovation.
