Fairly small with estimated seating of maybe 200 max. Local cast with players that participate for the love of the performance. I have been there 2 or 3 times. Parking is on street but the area is not crowded at night. It lacks the polish of a bigger city, but the players are dedicated and do a good job. Refreshments... More

I have great memories here of watching former professors and friends of mine perform in plays. The best was Macbeth.

I went to see Osage County and was very impressed with the acting and professionalism of all actors. I was treated very nicely by the crew of the play and had the drinks and snacks that I wanted. All crew members taking care of the refreshment and ticket area were very nice. I am, however, surprised at the little advertisement... More

Nice playhouse with good acting. Fun place to catch a performance or two. If you are going with a family, you may want to make sure the production is kid friendly.

Two thumbs up for effort. The actors and crew that put on shows here are dedicated. They stretch a few dollars a long way. It's not Broadway, but I try to support whenever I can with patronage. So in and see a show sometime

Some people think controversy is someone else's problem, but if we don't collectively take action, then all of us won't hardly be able to keep our noses above water and may die! Specifically, my wife & I joined several other friends to attend a play, "The Temperamentals", authored by John Morans & directed by Ivan Sandlin, at this exceptionally fine,... More

Never countd how many people can be in the audience, but it is very few (maybe 100?) Get up front and personal with the plays. Prices very affordable, meet and greet the actors after the play. Good times!
