This is a very small theater so no matter where you sit, you can see the stage. I've been to several plays here and they all have been top notch! There are also two restaurants near by to dine before the plays.

Great show at a great theatre. Acoustic, lighting, sets were all wonderful. But the best part was the cast and the amount of time and effort they put in to make this a memorable event for us.

My daughters and I attended 'West Side Story' Friday, July 14th!! It was a perfect, amazing performance!! The Ivoryton Playhouse is small, seating is 250 capacity, it is quaint and charming!! We loved being there!! I, highly recommend attending any performance held there!!
