We enjoyed Little House of Horrors. Even in the back row you are relatively close to the stage. Downstairs they have a bar. Pre-show drinks can be purchased and enjoyed on a porch overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Very reasonably priced.

We saw this musical and were totally impressed with the singing, acting, and the set. The theatre itself is right on the water and very nice. Tickets were $35 per adult and my daughter who is attending university was half price. Excellent value

This summer we saw The Clockmaker - what a delightful surprise - most summer theatre seems to be musicals or Norm Fosterish theatre, but The Firehall has the perfect play - four characters, a fascinating set, a quirky love story and the best acting I have seen this summer - the actor who plays the clockmaker deserves some kind of award - he was wonderful - so fully into his character that his photo in the lobby was a surprise. Do see it!!!

I had purchased my tickets on line for their production of "Little Shop Of Horrors". The theatre had no bad seats, and they were elevated to such a degree that nothing blocked your view. At intermission, there was enough time to have a drink, or use the facilities (very clean), and return to our seats without being rushed! Wish they were closer to my hometown, will definetly visit again!

Saw the Little Shop of Horrors in August. It was a very good production and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
