Solid performances, and shows that are really rooted in the community. Lots of emphasis on music and storytelling. We saw Newfoundland Vinyl and were thoroughly entertained. A small but comfortable space, with no bad seats.

Fantastic was to spend the evening after your dinner. Great local performers and a great live play using only three actors. They move all the props and scenery themselves to change for each act. Close intimate performance including music.
