We really loved Evita! The vocals were simply amazing! The did excellent casting with this show. I was shocked to see how empty it was. I felt bad that nearly two rows behind us were empty, we did go on a weeknight so that could be why. The seating was comfortable but we did get a little cold. They had... More

We recently moved to the area and tried the theater for lunch today and saw Evita. Everything from the setting, service, food, and performance was really great. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday lunch and afternoon. We will definitely attend future shows!

Good show! It went along with the movie a great deal but threw in its own unique changes to make it its own. They included the "Jitterbug" song and that was fantastic!!! The actors would also use the entire auditorium to put on the show so you were up close to them while in character. A lot of fun and... More

We have season tickets and just have to say - this place is fantastic. The atmosphere is great, the food is NOT buffet and is a good selection. Also, I have to eat gluten free and they offer appetizers, entree and dessert that are gluten free. That is huge for me. Also the actors, singing and service is AWESOME. A... More

This was hands down the best show we have seen this season. The acting was outstanding and a big shout out to Toto, who was in her first play. Well done!! The wait staff were attentive and although some had to get ready for the play you didn't feel rushed. I have come to the conclusion because of the quantity... More

You never feel cramped in this dinner theater, it's beautiful, roomy and the waitstaff are first class. WORTH the drive north on I 25! I bring family and senior groups here once a month. We just saw the Wizard of Oz last weekend. Great fun with hearing all our favorite songs from a favorite movie. Great cast and the singing... More

I saw the Wizard of Oz and this was a great version of the stage musical. The acting, singing, and directing were outstanding. The band was a little bit off, but perhaps with practice they could get better. It was the first night with the new kitchen and the food was pretty good. There are even couple of vegetarian selections... More

Talented Actors, who is also the wait staff. This is by far the nicest Playhouse I've been to. There is not a bad seat in the house. Reasonably priced.
