What a treat! First timers. We paid the $5 bucks to park. It was worth it so we didn't have to walk too far in the dark. We got there about 5:30 for the 8:00 show, plenty of time to relax before the fun began....More

We attended a showing of Mama Mia. It was a very warm evening so no need for blankets, but location can be cold some evenings. FYI, for sections 2 and 4, the lower seat numbers are closer to the center section. But you can see...More

It's a must. Our family has been attending summer theater here for years and the quality of production continues to improve. Each season features 3 different plays usually for 3 different audiences so keep in mind some shows will have smaller children while some shows...More

I must confess that we only attend when one of our friends is in the cast. But this is a great venue for enjoying regional theater. My seat at my last visit was unusually uncomfortable but the overall experience was great. Arrive early for better...More
