Awesome Time

We went to see Mame, and the venue is so quaint and personal, that you can almost reach out and touch the performers! It is not expensive and it was a time well spent!

I have gone to two plays at Freefall and enjoyed both productions very much. It is a small theatre and feels cozy and intimate. They do a fantastic job with the set and the actors are very good. The seats are raised up on platforms and may be difficult for the elderly or someone with mobility issues. Just make sure... More

We have always been impressed and have never been disappointed by any of the shows we have seen at Freefall, no matter what the genre. Easy in, easy out, plus an initimate venue makes for an interactive experience. A little snack shack in the outside park-like setting with wine and beer available rounds out a very enjoyable outing. Highly recommend... More

We loved our first visit to freeFall Theater...which almost didn't happen because a hurricane was blowing in that night. We saw Pirates of Penzance (in space!) and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it. The actors were outstanding, their singing voices were exceptional, the musicians were impressive. Everyone seemed to be genuinely enjoying their work. We attend theatre... More

It is very easy to get to and the parking is right next to the theatre. I have never been disappointed with any of the plays I have attended there. They need to advertise more as many people who live here don't know it is there.

This is a wonderful intimate little venue for live theatre. Seats are on 3 sides of the performance space and close to the actors which make you feel a part of the play. I have seen several different types of entertainment there, I have enjoyed some more than others but that's just a matter of taste. There's a little cash... More

Not a bad seat in the house. Seating surrounds stage in 3 or 4 sides depending on show. As locals we have seen numerous performances there and never disappointed.

My partner and I have attended several performances at the Free fall and have enjoyed every one. Is it Broadway? No, but the shows are very good and the actors personable. If you are looking for a fun evening out, this is a great place to go.

We are local residents and have seen about 10 productions here at this small, yet incredible theatre over the last couple of years. Never ceased to be amazed at the diversity of the genres of plays performed, but, importantly the genius of Director Eric Davis. His ability to creatively maximize each tiny inch of intimate space, to enhance and convey... More
