  • First timers. Though not my favorite play that was being performed, the whole experience was magic.We were in the last row of the theater and still able to see and hear clearly. Hope to go back again.

  • Excellent productions with fine actors. This town has three comfortable theatres used for a variety of dramas, musicals and some Shakespeare productions during a long March to November season. Loved the 'Preface' ($10) which is a 30-minute talk given by an actor and theatre scholar as an intro to each play's author, storyline and production history. Very informative and helpful if you're going to shows with school age children.
  • Excellent evening watching the Tempest. Would recommend hiring cushions ($3 each) for a long performance. Otherwise seating spacious. Great view of the stage. Definitely recommend going.
