This was our first visit to this theatre. We have visited theaters in different states and this one is at the top. The play, "Josiah for President" was on the venue and it was not a disappointment! We didn't know what to expect but were very pleased. The theatre seating is not large and any seat will give a good... More

We have seen many a show here along with the meal and it is great. In the past 10 yrs this was our 3rd time in seeing David Pendleton and up until this time, it had been a few years. We really enjoy him however was a little disappointed that his routine hasn't changed that much from the 1st time.... More

Very easy to purchase tickets on the phone with use of iPad to choose seats. Delightfully pleasant and cute afternoon play, that was filled with tasteful humor by 3 actors, who doubled up rolls, changing their characters effectively,followed by a huge family style dinner. My 87 year mother and I enjoyed this afternoon celebrating her birthday. We would recommend it.

I always enjoy David. He made it fun even though he was suffering with laryngitis. What a trooper. I am so glad he always gives the gospel too.

My friends and I attended the play "Our Christmas Dinner" at this theatre. It's a small, intimate venue seating 325 people. No bad seat in the house. The actors/actresses were all talented and engaging. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it really exceeded any expectations I may have had. At the end of the play, the actors invited the... More
