Saw the Christmas Carol, great performance. All seats are great in a small theatre. Set design was amazing and creative. A holiday favourite in a wonderful venue and great acting.

Awesome musical! Had great seats to watch this incredible performance. Moving, entertaining and well worth the price of admission. Glad I got to see the final matinee show before it’s gone.

My parents and I went to Shakespeare in Love and it was fabulous. The period costumes were excellent and the performances exceptional.
