Situated on the banks of the rushing Delaware River, the theater sits next to Bristol Lions Park and Wharf. It is also next to historic King George Inn Restaurant and Bristol's Mill Street. There is a public river overlook and gazebo just outside the door of... More

I purchased a 3 pack of tickets to see 3 different shows..One show down Driving Miss Daisy and I can't wait for my next show Jesus Christ Superstar. There is not a bad seat in the theater.

My wife & I arrived for a Saturday matinee of "Driving Miss Daisy" and we enjoyed it very much. We really like community theater and this was professionally done.

The theater has good sight... More

We just enjoyed a stellar performance of Driving Miss Daisy - transporting us back to the 50's & 60's as we watched Lucy Martin as Daisy, Marvin Bell as Hoke... More

This is a very professional theater set into a community background. I have seen several productions here and all of them were outstanding. One of which i remember quite well was Little Woman which was done remarkably well. You WILL be impressed.

Second show I have seen here. Good seating, friendly atmosphere and close free parking. Prices are OK for the value. Both have been good productions. Acoustics are fair but I missed a lot.👍🏻
