This was our first time to go to this theatre. Ten of us went and were amazed at the performance in this community theatre. It was incredible acting for this show. The theatre is small and intimate, allowing up close live theatre. We have lived here 5 years and are sorry we haven't attended sooner. We will be going back.

Home town theater in Old Town Bluffton! Reasonable priced tickets and all seating seems to be great! It's not Broadway, but the acting and singing was top notch. Would definitely go to see a play at May River Again.

We recently attended the comedy, "You Haven't Changed a Bit (and other lies)". It was a delightful evening of solid acting and staging by local talent. Held in a civic auditorium, seating and viewing were comfortable, parking was easy, and theatre staff/volunteers were welcoming. We'll go again!

What a wonderful play, the troupe was top notch and I look forward to seeing their other productions. Even with few props they were able to convey the entire play experience

The May River Theatre consistently performs top notch shows. Just a quick drive from downtown Savannah, GA, we find the theatre to be an intimate venue to experience live theatre up close. The cast gives it their all and the shows are well staged and thoroughly entertaining. We would highly recommend a trip to this hidden treasure in Bluffton, SC.

What a great show and great way to spend a Friday. We got hooked when we saw Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and this was such a fun surprise. Frake family cast was dead on!! We will see you at the next opening night.
