Our first time to attend a show at this facility. We arrived about 45 minutes early. The building was open. We were greeted immediately. There were lots of helpful people. We looked as some paintings on display in the lobby. There was complimentary coffee available. Water and sodas available. The theater itself opened half an hour before the performance started. We were shown to our seats. The chairs in the theater were very comfortable. The performance was very good. The people in the audience were also nice and friendly. There was an intermission and then the remainder of the performance. Cookies, some salty snacks, and wine were available. The flow of the crowd was easy in this facility. Halls and isles were wide enough to handle the capacity crowd. The acoustics in the building were excellent. The sound system and the operation of it were also excellent. This specific performance had an orchestra which was excellent. The singers were all very good and two were outstanding.

Every performance that we've attended at Fredericksburg Theater Company has been better than the last; and this was no exception. The pre-theater nibbles and wine (for donations only) as well as the intermission desserts (for donations only) were a pleasant surprise. We are excited about the theater's upcoming offerings for this season too.

I have been going to productions of Fredericksburg Theater for several years. Without a doubt, their productions are the most professional community offerings that I have ever seen. The recent Beauty & the Beast was outstanding. Every aspect from the set design, the lead characters, the chorus, the directing, the art work were all wonderful! If they have a production going on when you are in town, don't miss it! You will not be disappointed.

Not only was the set design, costume design and scenic art amazing, but the directing, casting, acting and voices brought this Disney story to life. Ten years ago, FTC brought in a professional singer from the Dallas area to star as Belle. This year the production features the voice of a young women who has grown up in the FTC youth program, and has blossomed into a great talent. The actor who portrayed the Beast was outstanding, as was the Gaston character who recreated the character from the Disney movie to a tee. Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Cogsworth, Babette and LeFou were exceptionally well cast, and brought their characters to life as well. Without a doubt, the Fredericksburg Theater Company produces the finest plays and musicals in the Texas Hill Country. You should plan your visit to Fredericksburg to include one of their amazing productions. You will not be disappointed.

Our third visit, we see a show every time we come to Fredericksburg. This place is a gem! The shows were all incredible! Very talented actors and actresses. Loved the snacks served before the shows and during intermissions, the seats are very comfy and people are friendly! It's a must now.
