Great little theatre with no bad seats. Has regular shows there so check out the website! Be prepared to park in the street. We parked at the post office with no problems as it was a Saturday nite concert.

Every Friday night the live broadcast is worth the ticket price! Only $5 a head. Best in local old time and bluegrass music. I always listen to the rebroadcast on Saturday evening over the local fm station 98,1 radio.
