I am always impressed by the quality of the shows at this theater, although the most recent production we saw was an odd choice (there was a reason it did not play long on Broadway as mentioned in the Play Bill). Regardless, it is fun...More

Intimate theatre is excellent space for musicals or other off broadway plays. Professional performers and musicians always provide great entertainment at a very reasonable price. Don’t miss this jewel in downtown Sturgeon Bay, WI!

Extraordinary!! This is a rare opportunity to see Candide, Leonard Bernstein's brilliant, collaborative masterwork from the mid-20th century. Even if you've never seen it, you will recognize themes and melodies, which have been used in a multitude of contexts since Candide's creation. If you are...More
