After getting burned at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival (bad sound and bad sight lines at $100 a ticket) we were leery of trying another summer theatre production, but when I found a two-for-one coupon in a Brockville tourist brochure we decided to give it a go. What a great experience! The theatre was adequately raked and the seats off-set so every seat has a great view of the stage. All the actors were miked and the sound system was excellent. The production itself, the musical She Loves Me, was well cast, joyfully directed, well lit, and a delightful romp. This is a little gem. Looking forward to seeing more shows here when I'm in the area.

We come to this Theatre on an annual visit to catch an afternoon play then we go out for dinner. It's an intimate Theatre where every seat is good. They have a good selections of drinks which are available before and during intermission. The Theatre overlooks the St Lawrence river which is nice to just look out and watch the boats. Parking is a challenge so expect to walk a long (a number of blocks) way. I often drop people off and park. There is a steep road down to the Theatre but those that can't manage there are golf carts to drive you. Recommend.

What a stunning venue and a great re-use of the former paddling club boathouse. Saw "She Loves Me". The cast, live music and house staff were all great.
