“Intimate Setting, wonderful shows!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

The shows are professional and there isn't a bad seat in the building. There is often a Thursday special of 2 for 1 tickets as the dates grow closer. If the shows are selling out you could miss out getting tickets at all if you wait too long. Be aware it is a gamble.

“Good Show”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Make sure you check their website to see what is playing. It was such a fun time and good quality drama and singing. On thursday evenings the tickets are 2 for 1! Otherwise about $22 each.

“Great Small Theatre”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We have seen a couple of shows here. Always very good performances with a good cast. Very intimate litle theatre and very reasonable admission prices. Tucked back of the main street. Free street parking the meighborhood. The Circle theatre is rite behind it and it is REALLY a intimate theatre. But also fun.
