This is my theatreof choice! Enjoy the grand design from your first step into this venue. Even my 6 year old grandson is captivated by its charm. I’ve been bringing him to the theatre since he was 4 years old. Arts appreciation 101 with Grammy.

Due Amici is a fantastic Italian restaurant downtown that is less than a ten minute walk. Would recommend reservations for a weekend night.
