Currently offering La cage aux folles and it was a fantastic experience. The cast really made this show and I would recommend the show to anyone. As for the playhouse itself, this place has so much character and could easily take you back in time....More

Just saw the Playhouse's latest production Noises Off. A fun romp and revival of a front of the stage and back of the stage story. The theatre is in a lovely old hotel, really central to the city - so very close to lots of...More
