Very nice local theatre. Great plays and shows. Drinks not too expensive. Seats are uncomfortable. Would recommend you bring a cushion. Good value for money.

Was a bit dubious, took a 4 1/2 yr and 8yr but it was great, very well done, squirted water in the muddy puddles song which everyone thought was brilliant. One criticism is how expensive the merchandise is and the confectionary.

I sat exactly where you are describing and had a perfect view. Just a couple of rows that side so it's not over crowded either

I'm so sorry but when we visited we were sitting in the front row and there weren't any leg room restrictions. So I'm not sure what about your seats. I'd advise you to give them a call and ask. Good luck!
