My wife and I didn't even known about this little theatre until friends gave us some tickets. What a neat little theatre and a great play we saw.

My husband and went to see 'Evil Dead' the musical at the Pumphouse Theatre. We had never been there before and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I think the venue is a great place. Easy to get, parking was good and of course the production was awesome! Looking forward to going there again.
