First timer Here! I had no idea we had such a great little theater with such quality performers right here in Clinton! I went to a sold out show of "Grease"! Each one of the actors had a marvelous singing voice. The show was well choreographed. The dancing was just as wonderful. I can't wait to go again. I had... More

Excellent talent brought in every summer for their plays. Good selection for all ages. Love how they intern local students from high schools around our town.

There is not a bad seat in the house. Very quaint and comfortable setting for excellent viewing of first class plays and musicals. "Cats" was absolutely outstanding. It was almost as if we were onstage with the performers,and their rendition was remarkable.

For the price it is what it is. The showboat is in definite need of maintenance but it is located on the riverfront, which is a great place to take the family for an afternoon. The prices for shows are no issue and they have summer camp for kids interested in theater.

Saw 'Wonderful Town,' and it was a great show. Surprisingly good leads, well choreographed. Obviously, it isn't Broadway, but it's well worth the money. A fun show on an old river showboat!

A cute old showboat with decent entertainment. It would be better if there was good available. The price is a little high.

The admission is a little high and parking can be bad, but the shows are well worth the money. I can not wait for the holiday play to open, I will be there with my children!
