Comfortable size with good sight lines. Generally high quality productions, but need to choose depending upon personal taste.

“Love the theatre and the work”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

If for any reason you don't like whatever production you see, you will love the architecture and history of the building. However, there's so much wonderful serious performing arts and entertainment year round.

“Great little gem.”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Stadium seating was great. Seats very comfortable. As out of towners, definitely a cute little theatre we'll be back to next time.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went to the Colonial last night to see Jim Breuer perform. The first floor had sold out so I purchased tickets in the balcony. "Big mistake"
I'm 6'1" and 235 lbs. My knees stuck into the seat in front of me. Horrible!
Never again. As for the comedy, that was horrible as well. The opener was a no name who was offensive and not funny. That's like going to dinner with a chef that can't cook. As for Jim Breuer, his material was poor at best and used Juvenile slap stick to compensate for lack of funny material.
