I thought it would be a melodrama, but it was an entertaining evening with great singing and dancing and (partially extemporaneous) acting of pure silliness that kept us all (including the cast) laughing. Great honky-tonk piano player. If you buy the meal along with the...More

We have seen Juanito Bandito twice now. The cast has you constantly laughing. The show was on par with what you would see at a much larger production house. The kids are laughing hysterically as well.

This place is always fun but this visit was phenomenal. Dinner was tasty and filling as usual. Cobbler and ice cream calmed my sweet tooth. Actors were on point with ad-lib comedy and the American rowing team (Row4ALS) was there with their custom sea kayak...More

It had bee several years since we last visited this establishment. The play was amazing and just plain fun. If you need extra leg room, you need to choose the seats on the left side, along the row. You also need to reserve seats early....More

First, this place was quite expensive for small-town entertainment, but the talent was incredible. We saw Juanito Bandito. The songs, acting, and music were all fantastic! The theater, itself is really interesting. My problem was with the content/style of the material. This is supposed to...More
