Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful experience at the Chemainus Theatre Festival. We agree that air conditioning is wonderful on a hot day, especially when taking in such a great show like Grease! We hope you will come again soon.

Timing off, big blank spots, POOR casting! Hard to sit through the second half. There were a few good individual performances by Rizzo and Teen Angel but even those could not make up for the overall lack of performance.More

The box office is such a pleasure to deal with. Very personalized. The entertainment is amazing for the price with not a bad seat in the place. Highly recommend the Theatre if you are in the area.

After 10 years attending similar "hit" musicals that warranted immediate and heartfelt standing ovations each time, and our return on three occasions to see the productions a second time, Grease turned out to be a surprising disappointment. The couple we were with felt the same...More
