We saw Sweeney Todd here and the production was fantastic. The cast was very professional and the stage is so close you get totally engrossed in the show. When intermission came we were shocked that so much time had passed so quickly. Considering the cost of big production plays, this theater is a real gem. It won't cost you and... More

We have been to the Center several times to see plays. Generally speaking, there was a fixed admission charge but sometimes it is make a donation as you see fit. The productions can be quite good or, occasionally, quite poor. It is hard to anticipate the quality of the upcoming performance. So, why a four star rating? I like it,... More

My fiancé has been performing at The Center for years and I've been lucky enough to tag along on many occasions :) The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the crew is helpful and cheerful, the grounds are beautiful and the performance space is to be envied! This is definitely a hidden gem. :)

We were staying in the area and found information about a jazz concert weekend so we purchased tickets. It is really located on an isolated country road, but once we found the place, we were very impressed with what has been done thus far. The building is beautiful and the jazz musicians were very talented. It was obvious that they... More

From the directing and staging to the sets and costumes to the performances and quality of the bands and singers, the Center offers the best musicals, dramas and comedies you can find in the Hudson Valley.

Very enjoyable evening with very talented actors. Saw Le Mis and we were not disappointed. It amazed me on a small theater group was able to take on a big show like Le Mis and be so successful. Get there a little early and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer. We will definitely return for future shows. Congratulations... More
