The venue is odd.... you enter the theater and descend several floors into a basement. And the descent is steep!!. This is not a venue for anyone with mobility issues or vertigo. Even for the solid, sure-footed individual, you must be careful to hold onto the railings and watching the uneven stairs. The seating is cramped and leg room is... More

On a lark while visiting Portsmouth, we decided to attend "Reefer Madness," which simplify defies description but was so excellent. The cast put out so much energy and enthusiasm and gave a Broadway-worthy performance. The theater is small and intimate so there is no bad seating. I found the staff to be genuininely appreciative of the sponsors and theater-goers. A... More

Attended "The Marvelous Wonderettes" and was totally entertained by a very talented cast. There was audience participation which added to the experience. Not very good leg room and very steep stairs,however, it is accessible.

I've been here many times. I really like the odd but functional multi-levelness of this 150 ? seat intimate theater. Use stair rails when climbing and descending, because its steep and can be tricky for the senses to navigate. SeaCoast Rep puts on decent theater, which is somewhere between "community quality" and professional. I went into this particular show with... More

The Seacoast Rep offers one of the best theater experiences in Portsmouth. They offer a full range of the stage productions, special events, and children's programs. Recently, having gone through some financial difficulties, the rep is now coming back strong. While the theater itself is smaller than the Palace Theatre in Manchester or the Ogunquit Playhouse in Ogunquit, it is... More

Recently we saw Avenue Q at the theatre. They did a very nice job and we truely enjoyed the evening. Portsmouth has a friendly vibe going and the staff at the theatre maintain it quite well. The production was nicely staged and the acting good. I hope to see another production there in the future.

We went to see South Pacific. The price was decent and the musical was fantastic. The actors did an awesome and believable job with their characters. It is an old theatre, downstairs and not very large, so no matter what you will have a great seat.It had an elevator for those who might need it.

We saw a 2 person play, it was quite entertaining. Surprisingly 2 actors could be so entertaining. Easy to follow story. I would go back.
