Went to Surflight Theatre for the first time Sunday to see The Ratpack Revue. The theatre is charming and the show was fabulous. Nick D'Egidio who plays Sinatra looks more like him than Frank Junior. His mannerisms took us back in time to all the Sinatra shows we remember, both live and on tv and to an era we all fondly remember. The theatre has had some financial setbacks and a recent fire which destroyed part of it was the icing on the cake. It would be a shame to see this gem go by the wayside, so any support you can give to keep it going would be greatly appreciated by the management who have quite a line up of top name talent for 2012.
Look forward to returning.

We love coming here. It has been here for as long as we can remember. My husband was in one of the plays of Oliver as a child. Great music venue, and new comedy clubs coming through now.

Your typical summer stock playhouse. The only one on the island, so if they are playing something you like, give it a try. Perfectly fine, but nothing notable, good or bad. Much like many summer stock venues around the country.

located in the charming LBI town of Beach Haven. Theatre does not have any bad seats. Has theatre classes for children. Adult and children's productions are wonderful summer entertainment.
