APT is known for the outdoor stage but the indoor Touchstone Theater shows are just as enjoyable in a more intimate space. We attended "The Gift of the Magi" holiday show in Dec 2012.

We've attended many plays there. Always a great time. We usually go there to eat before the play - sometimes taking our food with us or buying sandwiches there! There's something about an open air theater in the summer that is so inviting! Always a great time! It is well attended by many locals all summer and everyone has a good word to say!

The whole experience was great. We started out by meeting some friends in the picnic table area. We each brought a dish to pass. Then we went to the theatre area. This was a "Wow" for me.

The outdoor atmosphere has to be one of the best for theater int he US. The performances are always outstanding with very talented artists. I have been attending for 20 years and have never been disappointed. Worth the drive from Chicago for sure.
