We've been to this play house a few times and each time I say I won't be back. I get conned into going by friends that tell me there is a good play on but I've yet to see what I'd call a good play. The actors are amature, the sets are amature and the playhouse is dated. Intermission is... More

This is a great local venue where plays, music, comedians and other entertainment happens. This event was a local band doing a tribute of John Denver music. It was. Great evening. There is coffee and sweets for sale at intermission. Best to get tickets ahead of time, like on line, by phone etc because events usually sell out.

We had rented a vacation home close to Chester for a 4 day stay. On the first night the playhouse had a spectacular concert tribute to John Denver. Fabulous sounds and the familiar voice of the Country Boy of the 80's. From Rocky Mountain High to Country Roads, the audience sang and clapped to the rhythm of the band.

We enjoyed the night out at the Chester Playhouse. The players did a nice job with the musical production. The setting is intimate. It was classic summer theatre.

We took most of the family to see Ruthless. Kids were 4, 8 &12. My wife and I had a few good laughs ,the kids did too. We called to book in advance. There was an option to book online and even see what seats were available. It's a great time. Be careful and ask about adult content if bringing... More

We took friends last night to see Albert Schultz's - one man 'Frankly, Sinatra' show. Absolutely fantastic! If this show happens to be in your area it is definitely a must see. While the show is terrific the venue helps make it. A small theatre with no more than 150 - 175 seats it has excellent acoustics and great sight... More
