Upon entering the building, you have second thoughts as to the returns of your investment. Small, crowded and in somewhat of disrepair. However, when the actors start the performance, you attention immediately goes from the structure to the stage. A wonderfully talented group of entertainers...More

We hadn't been in a few years but bought tickets on a friend's recommendation. We saw Singing in the Rain and is was wonderful. Young and enthusiastic actors with tons of talent kept up the action for 2 hours. It is a very small venue...More
