The theater is old, but the play was wonderful, one of the best I have seen!! The talented Wallenpaupack teacher was marvelous as Reno, her singing and dancing was very professional. The entire cast was amazing!!

I thoroughly enjoy the amateur productions. The group and individual talent is remarkable . The theatre evokes memories of simpler times. It's a shame that the theatre doesn't receive some public funding to repair and maintain this beautifully nostalgic building.

The theater was old & no a/c and it was a very warm evening ! The play was not so good not worth the $15 . Theater badly needs renovation including a/c ! Either bring down price or better actors ! 😩😎

The shows are great but the building is old and needs remodeling. It has that old musty smell and you can see where there were water leaks. The seats also need to be refurbished if not replaced. Plus some air conditioning would help.
