We saw 2 performances in the main house, both as part of the 2017 jazz festival. Excellent musicians, superb atmosphere. House staff very friendly, pre theatre dinner in the adjacent cafe good value. Altogether a smashing experience.

I was fortunate enough to see three shows at the 'Theatre by the Lake' and they were all brilliant. There is the 'Studio' small and intimate. If you are on the front row you can more or less touch the actors they are that close!...More
