This was the first time we attended a show ("The Skulls of Connemara") but it won't be the last. This small theatre packs a punch. The acting was superb, the set was well-designed, and the production was great.

Great little live theater entertainment in downtown Golden, CO. Play and acting were really good and the intimate little theater and bar make for a nice diversion to the standard dinner only out. The theater and staff are well organized and the acting is really top notch. What a fun place to spend an evening with friends when looking for... More

Saw Biloxi Blues at this theatre. It's showing from May 20-June 26, 2016. We live in Las Vegas and have access to many shows, but this show is easily much better than some I have seen in Vegas. The acting was phenomenal. There theatre is small with no bad seat in the house. There is a full bar, so we... More

We were three couples visiting the "Tuna Christmas" production at this theatre Dec 12. Wish I had read the most recent review first. When I read it to my wife after the show, she swore I had written it! We had the SAME experience. Got there early as seating is not reserved and were 6th in the door...to find all... More

The current production of Tuna Christmas is not worth the time or expense. Our family of 5 which includes 4 adults and 1 teen went hoping for some holiday fun. The tickets were about $125 total and we had a side view blocked by a pole. We were never able to see the faces of both characters at one time.... More

First time here. I had never been here before, and did not even know it existed, as I am rarely in Golden. Located upstairs in a building in Golden, it seats maybe 100 people. I went to see "My Name Is Asher Lev," which was a fabulous show. Otherwise I would probably still not know it existed; it was really... More

Just discovered Miner's Alley, thanks to a very positive review of their "My Name is Asher Lev" play. This is a wonderful venue! Many small theatre are inside very old churches - often charming but sometimes musty and funky seating. This is a very small theatre as well, but the seating isn't old, the stage looks like spiffy new beetle-kill,... More

Miners Alley has brought some very good shows to the Golden area. My friends and I have attended two plays this season and are looking at another performance later this year. The seating if you are a member is great but if you are a non member, unless you are there the minute the doors open, you may find yourself... More

There are far too little local theaters left anymore, so having one near where I live has been a delight. I've only been to Miners Alley a couple of times, but they were both QUALITY plays and the smallness of the theater made the experience feel more 'personal' somehow. They have drink and small bites to also enjoy. The great... More

Intimate theatre experience. Reasonably priced & fun. A group of girlfriends and I went to The Fantasticks and it was.....fantastic! The music is enchanting and the acting was excellent. We enjoyed drinks before the show. We have also attended Parallel Lives – hilarious and The Road to Mecca – moving. We have our tickets for The Odd Couple.
