The show was great! The actors were very funny, talented, and think fast on their feet. This isn't a big place so you can get there early or purchase the tickets in advance. Admission is reasonable and the drinks/snacks were reasonable as well.

Went with my 16 year old daughter, first time for either of us at improv...so went with no expectations but so glad we went. Both of us enjoyed it, the service and cozy atmosphere was excellent and the performers hilarious! Great job!

We are a family of 5 (12,11,9 year old kids) renting a house in Hancock beginning 7/12 (Saturday late-Friday early). So far: - planning to do a Friendship Sloop on Monday morning for 3-4h though haven't officially decided where to ask them to take us. - booked Atlantic Climbing School for Tuesday at 12:30 (they're planning South Bubble). - Figure we should do a whale watch tour, and probably earlier rather than later in case we don't see any. - We can have kayaks delivered to the house...More

My husband and I recently went kayaking with Aquaterra and their age minimum is six and 48 inches tall. They have tandem kayaks so I don't know what the age limit might be for a single. Just wanted to give you some guidelines.
