“Great Summer Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

An outdoor summer stock theater. Shows run from June to August. The actors are fantastic, sets well done and seamless performances. The decor is very basic but nice (don't expect up scale or you will be disappointed). The dinner, optional, is good but not great. If you enjoy fine dining I would suggest to eat somewhere else and choose the show only option. This is a family run theater and they are so friendly and outgoing. They really make you feel welcome and that they are glad you are there. If weather does not allow for outdoor performances they do move indoors however the outdoor experience is to be preferred. Check out their website for updated pricing and info. Please note that not all show contents are family friendly. Please research the play beforehand as some contain content that is not appropriate for children. The website may not display this info.

They need better parking and they need to update the property a little bit.

“Great acting, terrible food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

You might be very pleasantly surprised by the professional quality of the cast. The food is not to be searched out.

“Great Outdoor Playhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Go an hour before the play begins to enjoy a nice meal, but the plays are the main attraction!!! A very good cast is brought in each year for some very entertaining plays!! The founder has passed, but his children continue to do an outstanding job!!
