“Got to dance with a mummer !”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Attended Dinner Theatre with friends who are locals and enjoy joining their visitors at the theatre. The show was very entertaining for people of all ages including children. Guests are seated at long tables and the food was quite good, similar to home cooking. Not fancy but tasty and satisfying. Near the end of the show, cast members disguised as mummers come out and cajole guests to join them for a dance. What a hoot! The evening was a wonderful introduction to Newfoundland music and culture. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

“Big city theatre in a small town”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We attended a fantastic performance of "Terese's Creed" , a one actor play. The quality of acting was excellent and totally engaging. We could not have expected more. I regret that we are not staying longer to see more plays. Truly a professional presentation.

“Pageant history a hit!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Great walk through the history of the Trinity area through the centuries, acted out with humour and poignancy. We'll worth the 2 hours. Better be in good voice for the audience participation...

Glad you had a great time out here! We like to think it's a pretty good use of 2 hours. But yes, no slacking on the audience participation.

“What a wealth of talent preforming in the Bight this year!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We took in the dinner theatre, as one of our activities and it was most enjoyable! Such of fine group of talented performers, both
acting and singing. It was a delight! I would recommend it to anyone going to Trinity. Would like to return to see more of the plays.

“Short play just what we wanted”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The theatre is a couple of minutes walk from the Artisan Inn, and the short play (60 minutes), Pillow Talk, was funny and light, just what we hoped for.
