Saw a play here last month and enjoyed the entire experience. This is a charming place to see a show. They have upgraded much of this and will go here a lot now that I have experienced this place.

Plays are of high quality with terrific production values and talented casts. The variety of selections causes us to see things we probably wouldn't without the season ticket. We are always entertained and glad we had attended.

All the plays we have seen have been highly entertaining and the actors and volunteers are so friendly and helpful. Since then we have also attended some fundraisers. These people are wonderful and their cause is worth my time and money.

The actors and actresses are extremely talented. I feel that if they were in the right place at the right time they would be on Broadway.

The shows are always amazing and a friendly local group. I have season tickets again this year and am happy to support local theater. The building is a former Masonic Lodge so the building has an amazing history too.
