It has been a number of years since I visited so I was surprised to see the theater now housed in a permanent structure. There are no bad seats in this intimate setting. The play we saw had very few actors and all were really talented. I like what is being done here with local stories being told well in... More

My husband and I were to see Chasing Champions last month. It was our first time at the theatre, and we were very pleased with our experience. The staff were very accommodating, the theatre seating is comfortable, and the audience was situated so close to the performers that I felt it was a show just for me. Highly recommend the... More

Recommended by our host at a local b&b (thanks Jamie), we throughly enjoyed and learned some history at the presentation of "Chasing Champions". A very impressive small theater and great staff.

Eepersip's Disappearance. Local theatre at it's best. Found this gem while planning a trip to Parrsboro prior to heading out for a kayaking trip. Loved the story and the acting was fantastic. Unique venue!

This theater is a little gem in Parrsboro. What a surprise to find this lovely facility in this relatively small town. Canadian plays produced by Regional actors and crew. You can talk with the members of the company before the performance and during intermission. Pretty cool.

Be careful BEFORE you make a booking. Once the booking is completed - no matter what the reason or circumstances - you CANNOT get your money back

We saw the production, Habit of Murder on our recent vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed this production. It was professionally done in every respect.. Do you want to know who done it? I guess you will have to go to find out.

You'd expect something amateur but we definitely enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it. We've quoted characters from this play for 2 weeks - so it stuck with us. Kids enjoyed it as well.
