This theater group is one of the oldest in the country with many talented volunteers involved. The quality of performances is usually top rate. Anyone can be involved if interested as they are also very welcoming to new volunteers. The price is right also as becoming a member ensures you a ticket for each show and it is definitely cheaper...

I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the entire cast did a great job. It was an excellent show and I loved the music and story by Peter Allen.

This small, local theatre group that says it dates back to 1923 is a gem. My wife and I often attend shows there and most recently attended their current production of "A Chorus Line".

Saw "Legally Blond" last year and "Avenue Q" this year - both excellent productions and tickets are a great value. Theater is small and intimate. Space is a little old, but not uncomfortable.

This theatre group owns it's own theatre, which is a renovated church. Very quaint, air conditioned, comfortable, not a bad seat in theatre. Very talented people work on these shows and have won many awards. Check it out!

This is a neighborhood treasure that sometimes delivers great performances, and other times misses the mark. If you can be a good sport, it's well worth taking a chance--some of the performances have been amazing, and it's a lovely intimate setting for seeing a play or musical.
