This place is very fun. The shows are great and the food is surprisingly good. Wish it did not cost so much, but the price does seem justified considering what you get. They have been very accommodating of my dietary restrictions.

This is a great community theatre. They do some creative things. I went to see Singing in the Rain and as part of the performance it was actually raining on stage! Well done acting, singing and dancing and the food is good too.

Such a great show! Even better because our two grandkids were on stage as the culmination of their eeek-long children’s theater workshop! As always, the food and friendly atmosphere were terrific, as well!

Excellent venue and really enjoyed having lunch followed by a great show. Several meal choices with “extras” you can purchase if you’d like. Service was great and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Will be returning.

Very high quality combination of dinner and theater. The tri-tip is their signature meal and very good. Peach Pavilion ice cream sundae dessert is outstanding. The audio on this show "9 to 5" was a bit overmodulated, not sure the actors needed the amplification. Choreography...More
