We saw Don't Kick The Turkeys. The actors and actresses were great with beautiful voices that harmonized well. The play had alot of laughs. Inexpensive tickets and a great way to spend the evening! Would highly recommend everyone see this play.

Went to this play when we took a bus tour of the area. Nice little theater, but the seating is very uncomfortable. Reasonable prices on their concessions. Some wonderful acting and singing! Good place to go for an evening of entertainment.More
