Small theater, old bit in good shape. Chairs could have been more comfortable, but otherwise very nice. We saw John Berry, and it appears that they have a wide variety of acts. Max seating is maybe 200. Serves alcohol.

We went to Deborah Hansen-Conant. The show was fantastic. The theater has open seating for about 90 folks. The bar prices were great. A nice homey place to see a performer.

Unique shows with prominent traveling and local performers. As with many such venues, the volume is to the point of endangering one's hearing.
