This is a very professional theater set into a community background. I have seen several productions here and all of them were outstanding. One of which i remember quite well was Little Woman which was done remarkably well. You WILL be impressed.

Second show I have seen here. Good seating, friendly atmosphere and close free parking. Prices are OK for the value. Both have been good productions. Acoustics are fair but I missed a lot.👍🏻
