We came into town for a musical and love staying at the Blue Gate Garden Inn. The staff is very polite and accommodating, the rooms are very clean and the amenities can keep anyone busy or relaxed. We are already planning our next visit as a family reunion.

My girls and I enjoyed seeing "Our Christmas Dinner." It was funny and lighthearted with a very real message. We enjoyed seeing many returning cast members also.

Loved the performance. The portrayers did an excellent job and played their parts well. Especially enjoyed how the show went on with no intermission.

This a wonderful theaters with live productions for the entire family. I have seen several plays now and have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one. I can't wait to go again in the spring to see another one! The actors are well-prepared and very engaging. Don't miss the opportunity to check out the awesome plays offered.

We were able to go see a musical play at Blue Gate. And, we also ate lunch at the Restaurant. The food was very good, and we were served in a timely matter. I also love to order off the menu rather than the buffet, or family style, as we don't eat enough to feel we got our money's worth... More
