This place oozes with a stage presence hardly found in small towns like Auburn. It is a struggling non-profit that offers better than average stage performances of all types from music to plays to comedy.

While the events are varied and interesting the bar selection is horrid. We were served small(6oz) plastic glasses of very cheap grade bar wine. For the price of $7.00 per glass one would think they could sell a little higher quality beverage.

The theater is small so I would suggest sitting in the middle area . About the 6 or 7 row area . You can see everything even if you sit toward the back. Hope this helps
