We went to two plays at the Pickleville Playhouse this week. The actors are enthusiastic and talented and they are happy to pose for pictures afterward. We enjoyed the evening. Great lighting design by Eboni Williams really added to the performance.

This was such a fun treat. Clean fun, great music, and our kids loved it. Would come back again if we did not live in England. Our kids are still saying the one liners from the play.

It's so great to find a little treasure where it is always safe to bring your family. Good, clean fun. The kids love it and so do the adults. We have been to two Bandito shows and one other. All were great.

The show is great, but the food is just okay. Enjoy the local preformers and the near by town. Don't forget to swim in the lake, wich is cool and refreshing.

We went to see the latest version of Juanito Bandito and it was great. Every year the musical changes but the character is the same and he is hilarious. They also do another musical on alternate nights that changes each year. Talented kids - CLEAN...More
