Just returned from seeing the latest play at the long-time theater A.D. Players; "Gold, Frankincense, Christmas Tree Ornaments, and Myrh".
I remember (not too long ago) when this theater actually had really, really good shows that were entertaining, funny, and always played to a packed house! Not this show!! It was only 1/2 full, and half the people there were sleeping; it was sooo boring.
Hopefully, the productions will get better, but if you're thinking about this show, don't waste your time or your money. Besides, they may stick you in an old, really uncomfortable chair that's placed in the aisle.
If this is their standard, then it's time to move on. I'll be sure to look closer for reviews before I ever buy tickets to A.D. Players again.

nice light plays that both entertain and shows new talent from the Houston Area... Christian oriented so no cursing in the play

This was by far the worst theater I have ever been to! And I've been to over 40 different theaters across the country. The actors do a poor job and the plays they put on are packed with repetitive 'humor' which isn't funny the first time, let alone the thirtieth.

AD Players provides a unique aspect to a city filled with theater options. It is small and intimate, and the productions I have attended have been excellent. We have always enjoyed their children's theater productions as well.

I've been to A.D. Players on several occasions; each of the performances were delightful. The acting each time was superb. It's refreshing to find a place for evening entertainment that is quality yet reasonably priced. A.D. Players has been "date night" also, "ladies night out" with our ladies group from church on several times. They offer group rates when bringing large crowds and this is a great night out for your women's group. All the ladies had a great evening.
