We have had season tickets for years. The productions are almost always well done. We did walk out on one performance, but everything else has been very good to excellent. The recent remodel was needed and well done.

We went and saw the Christmas Carol and it was wonderful. The dramatic effects were great. Thoroughly enjoyed the play. Loved it better than the movie.
