Salem is a small and upcoming town. It's unusual for a town this size to have a theater company. But Salem has one. I've been several of their shows. The talent is local. Like any local theater company, there were some things that I liked more than others. But Salem Theatre Company is pretty darned consistent. I like the more artistic and cutting edge works they do; my wife likes the comedies and lighter fare. I'm so happy that Salem has quality theater!

We have been going to the STC for 2 years and became subscribers this year. Haven't had a bad show yet!
It is a very small venue so you are always close to the stage. Most shows have anywhere from 2 to 6 players but they are all very professional. Scenic design and lighting is superb.
It is a theatre gem!!
You can't beat the prices.

It’s ain’t easy to surprise this sometimes jaded theatre veteran. Yet last night I had the pleasure to be amidst an audience that sat in stunned silence at the close of a preview performance at Salem Theatre Company. Literally, no one moved! Then ever so slowly we turned to look at each shaking our heads in disbelief.

Jeffrey Hatcher's "A Picasso" now playing at STC is a twisted fantasy exploring the role of art, the artist and the beholder in a world gone mad during the Nazi occupation of Paris in WWI. Stephen Cooper brings a touch of elegant arrogance to the bullishly seductive Pablo Picasso, who has met his fiery and intellectual match in Linda Goetz at Miss Fisher, a member of the Third Reich, whose lifelong appetite for Picasso’s work has turned against her in her quest for survival. Anything more than this would be a spoiler… This brilliant production, under the knowing eye of STC’s artistic director, John Fogle should kick STC into a whole new level of appreciation in the North Shore’s theatre scene and beyond. BRAVO!

We went to see the current play "AN EMPTY PLATE IN THE CAFE DU GRAND BOEUF" We enjoyed it thoroughly. Great cast. Better than most regional theater. We'd seen another play there about a year ago (Rounding Third, I think it was called.) We enjoyed that as well. Also the current 1 minute Christmas Carol, a take off on the Dickens classic which they have on their web site, is brilliant.

We went to see The Woman in Black over the Columbus Day weekend and enjoyed it very much. Although it only had two actors, they had a wonderful range of expressions and did a very good job conveying the different emotions of the story. We'd never been to the theatre before and were pleasantly surprised by the intimate setting. Due to the size and layout, everyone had a good seat and at various points in the play the actors were right in front of my chair, so I couldn't have had a better view. It was a very hot day when we visited and it was lovely to sit in the air conditioned theatre with access to restrooms and complimentary bottled water after braving the crowds at the Biz Baz. A very pleasant rest for our tired feet.
