Great show by a local production group of the Mama Mia play. The setting was intimate and there wasn't a bad seat in the house. Very much enjoyed the show and setting.

This outdoor theatre was a great experience under the stars. We saw the Hunchback of Notre Dame. The actors were so talented. There are blankets to rent for the cool evenings, food, hot coffee and cocoa, as well as friendly people. We enjoyed it immensely.
