Fascinating story of love, distortion of love, fantasy and redemption (of sorts) The play is a 'don't miss' and the last of a wonderful run of successful productions for 2016

We have seen three plays at the Oldcastle Theatre this past summer: Big River A Musical, The City of Conversation and The Consul, the Tramp and America's Sweetheart. Every production has exceeded our expectations. The actors were highly professional. The sets were fantastic. We found the productions to be on par with Broadway. We couldn't be more pleased.

A small theater right on main street in an old building that has been renovated to bring it up to date with comfortable seating and air conditioning. They had a professional quality show there too. It was a nice outing.

Delightful evening of theatre. David Joseph held the audience in the palm of his hand. I resent that this process REQUIRES at least a 100 word review. If this demand remains

Old Castle Theater Company consistently delivers an excellent live theater experience at affordable ticket prices! Have dinner at one of several downtown eateries (my favorite being Allegro) then enjoy a wonderful play!

Once again, an Oldcastle Theater performance lived up to our expectations. We saw last week's performance of The Consul, the Tramp and America's Sweetheart. Simply stated, the cast did a superb job of bringing to life Charlie Chaplin. Better than some plays on Broadway that I have seen.

We have made 2 trips to Bennington this summer and both times we have attended plays at Oldcastle. BRAVO! We were thrilled with the cast and costumes of Big River and left feeling like we had just seen a Broadway performance. We had the extraordinary experience of seeing the Consul, the Tramp and America's Sweetheart! This was an amazing production.... More

Since the beginning of the season, Oldcastle is hitting out of the park; each show is better than the next! Bennington is very fortunate to have such a gem in its downtown! Kudo and bravo!
