Thoroughly enjoyed production of The Producers. Community Theater at it's best. The new seating is comfortable and the sound system made this a great musical. Would highly recommend.

So disappointed in the theater's new seats. 6 of us attended (4 over 6' tall) and all of us were uncomfortable. Seats are bolt upright and narrower than the worst coach seats on the worst airline! Really need replacing before I would ever attend another...More

As a disclaimer I should note that I have performed with ACT in the past. That being said, I am not an easy audience member. ACT's current production "The Producers" is amazing! Very high energy from start to finish. Great theatre at the highest level....More
