I attended Soundtracks 11 24 Hour Rendition Sunday January 8th. This place is a very small venue so all seats give a good vantage point. That is the only thing positive about this venue. The sound reinforcement/acoustics are atrocious. I was seated stage right second...More

I will never go back there again. Although some reviewers may call it intimate, that is just theatre-speak for way too small. We went to see the Sears Drama festival play for our children's school and after seeing the venue and spending a few hours...More

Well performed, intimate theatre space, fun evening. The show was an excellent choice for this stage and all actors were extremely good. There are also several excellent restaurants in the area and made for an entire evening of delightful activity. Highly recommend it.

It's a small theatre, no parking, have to use township parking. It would have been better if it had been built at Park Place, off of Molsons and Highway 400. More parking , restaurants, easier to get to.

We had a really lovely time here, but as other reviewers have mentioned, it's a tad on the cramped side but great for seeing every square inch of the show
