This is the 3rd performance we have seen in the 2015 season...and it keeps getting better and better. Last evening we saw B&B...the talent these two actors displayed was nothing short than Academy Award worthy.

We really enjoyed the beautiful setting on the water. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room temperature and seating were comfortable. We saw Tuesdays With Morrie. Gives you lots to think about. Well acted. Affordability priced compared to the city. Will definitely return.

Hot humid summer night on the river. A/C was working fine. The show "Don't dress for Dinner" was entertaining. Great venue for a live performance.

My 14 year old granddaughter and I laughed our way through this spirited local version of Pirates and were delighted at the jibes about the Senate scandal. Spontaneous, professional, first class fun!

The play was delightfully light comedy. It is a small theatre so you are close and intimate. The theatre is a short walk from the town centre and close to many hotels. We love local theatre and this don't disappoint us. Hope you get to...More
