A must see! Excellent live play from the 1930s. Very funny plus the singing and dancing is great. Never a dull moment, and the play moves on quickly. This can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Beautiful theater, not a bad seat in the house, and very nice staff. We went to see "Me and My Girl" and their performance was excellent. Great theatre experience in a small town! Would definitely come back.

Me and My Girl was superb. An old- style musical with a great cast. Wish we had had time to see Dancing At Lunghasa. Don’t miss the Shaw Festival. What a rich experience.

No, we thought the sound was awesome. (I'm a music major, so I do notice things like that!) We were 6 rows from the front and could hear every word, every whisper, every sound!
