We were fortunate enough to catch the season's final performance of O'Neill's "Long Days Journey into the Night." The small cast of five was up to the task of this look into a dysfunctional family. The entire performance Tok place in one room with five...More

Southern Vermont's all-professional theater company explores plays and musicals in a unique fashion, mostly directed by the very talented artistic director Eric Peterson. Their flexible-format theater often adds to the experience.

If you like good acting, clean cut comedy and perhaps opera, this is the show for you! I attended a matinee at a lovely theater and came away totally delighted with the experience. Bravo to the excellent cast!

Went to see a sold out performance of A Comedy of Tenors on a Wednesday night. Simply stated, it was a wonderful performance. The acting could not have been better and the laughs did not stop until the curtain came down.

Sweet little theater, comfortable seats. The performance was wonderful. Drove up from Cape Code for a little vacation, so glad we included this performance of "Moonlight and Magnolias" on our itinerary. We will be back.
