There is a huge variety of shows at this theatre. The acoustics are good, seating comfortable and the prices at the food bar are very reasonable. Parking can be a challenge so allow extra time to park. Have seen some great shows here.

Wonderful to see talented actors taking the stage and skillfully presenting a fast flowing repertoire of skits and musical items, lampooning current political characters. Much appreciated and full of laughs for the aud7.
