Beautifully restored theatre. Comfortable seating. Small, intimate setting. Also has a nice patio area to mingle during intermission. Creative productions, with top-caliber talent.

Our visit to the playhouse was actually four years ago. We try to attend local theaters when traveling, and this is one of the best.

Just saw this Panto and it is a great show with Ben Vareen and some Disney-Nickelodean stars. Fun music. Take your kids age 7 and up. Comedy is awesome.

11.15.2013 - saw Gidion's Knot by the furious theatre Co., written by Johanna Adams, directed by Darin Anthony. The contents clearly garnered from controversial headlines; suicide of 9-years old student after being suspended for writing about violence. The bitter mother seeks vengence, assaulted teacher. The language was most troubling.
The set was arranged like a school-room. Seats very cramped and uncomfortable for 80 mins.
No intermission. Old building.

Used to be season ticketholders for a fair number of years; however play selection moved too far from our interests. Now buy one-off tickets every year or so. Also, seems like they have a lot of interim concert type shows now.

Historic place and certainly worth seeing a play there; however trending in the wrong direction.
