We took my 8 year old son who really didn't want to stop playing at the park to watch a show. He liked the play so much that he wanted the book afterward.

We saw a play put on by this theater right on the river walk on Saturday evening! So much fun! So much talent! Not sure if they do this every weekend, but there were probably close to 1000 people enjoying this performance! Very cool!

My review is based on the building itself. Wow, it is retro and induces smiles. I enjoyed their sign the best! There are unique things to see on the grounds too which included a child's size building that was fun to see.

We have had season tickets the last 3 years and I can only think of two shows we didn't just love. They have a great variety of humorous, musicals, and touching plays. I love that they come from books and usually have a twist to...More
