Recently went to see A Christmas Carol. Its a small place, so every seat in the house has a good view. We sat a few rows from the stage at the highest ticket price of $19. The seats are small and pretty jammed together, so a little discomfort there with refreshments and winter coats to deal with. Offered beer ($6)... More

The entertainment is first rate. The musicals and non-musicals are professionally done and always a pleasure. The one complaint I have heard from people pertains to non-musicals and the difficulty hearing some of the actors. Why not have the actors use personal mics? This would solve the problem of people not being able to hear all the actors. Some voices... More

The Bradley Playhouse hosts a number of plays each year, as well as special events, such as regular comedy nights. I recently saw the play "Postmortem" and enjoyed it thoroughly. The Bradley does its best to produce top-quality entertainment. There are a number of extremely talented actors who perform there regularly. The seating is comfortable and efforts to maintain this...

It is refurbished, air conditioned and long ago feel. Shows are well presented for a small theater troop

This is a real gem in the quiet corner. It a great place to bring family, friends and kids when you're trying to figure something to do. The musicals are filled with some of the most amazing voices this side of the Mississippi.

This is a great local playhouse with some great local talent. Every production we have attended has been entertaining and well performed, whether it be comedy, musical or drama. Considering this is amateur talent with a limited budget and short run performances, it's amazing. We are season ticket holders and a few of the productions have rivaled some of the... More

Wife and I enjoyed a show at the Bradly for the first time. We had a lovely time. The actors were just fantastic. What talent. My only criticism for this theatre, I inquired about the closed loop for the hearing impaired, as most theatre venue's, church's, etc, have installed, they told us that they have the system, but they were...
