For a small town, this theatre brings in big shows and good acting for a reasonable price. Also, there is not a bad seat in the whole theatre.

We went to see a John Denver themed show. I loved the intimacy of the theatre, the way all seats cost the same, moderate price point, ushers were so friendly, great variation of offerings, nice waiting area, bathrooms, snavks.

Went to see Sister Act with my girlfriends. This is always a great time and we do this quite often. The shows are great and very reasonably priced.

We saw Sister Act, the stage production, nothing like the movie. We loved it. The performers were wonderful. We are snow birds so here for three months. Will see couple other shows while here.

We love this little theater. They put on excellent shows. There are no bad seats. You can get a cocktail before the show or at intermission. Restaurants are within walking distance. We try to see a performance every time we are vacationing in the area.
