Went to see Sister Act in Aug 2016 and it was great. I loved the outdoor atmosphere of this stage. Actors are great and so is the setting! Can't wait to go see Newsies Summer 2017!!! parking could be better.

We have season tickets for Porthouse. 3 plays a summer. We take a picnic dinner and eat there before each play. We love it!
