We've attended four or five Theatre in the Round productions and never been disappointed. There really isn't a bad seat in the house; about the farthest you can get from the stage is 6 or maybe 8 rows back. The sets are always very well...More

TRP, as it is known to actors in the area, is a great and reputable venue with 3-5 star level productions in their 60+ years. I have never walked away thinking it was a waste of time; the casting is usually high-level and the direction...More

I have partial season tickets so enjoy five plays there each year. There is always an Agatha Christie mystery which is my favorite. The plays are performed in the round so there is never a bad seat, may be a little off to one side...More

Saw "The Secret Garden" on opening night. The actors did a fabulous job and it was even more impressive to me because half the actors were under 18 years old. There isn't a bad seat in the place. With limited space, they really can get...More
