I hate to rave about this theater risking that it may become too popular and seating will be harder to get. We have seen multiple performances over the past year and everyone has been outstanding. The most recent shows we attended were Mary Poppins in December 2016 and My Fair Lady in August 2016. They manage to accomplish a great... More

Nice local theatre - small productions - only sits about 100 people, don't worry about getting a good seat, they all are good. Always a nice evening and they do "good theatre"

My wife and I went to the Encore for a play and didn't know what to expect. Turns out, we had a great time. The place is small enough to be intimate and be enough to be professional with real talent in the cast. We enjoyed it so much we are considering buying the yearly pass. Do yourself a favor... More

I wish I had discovered this theatre company years ago. This weekend was my first visit and I loved it. The production was My Fair Lady and, wow, it was excellent! Wonderful acting and singing and the small orchestra was top-notch. What talented performers! The stage is small but the team worked miracles in setting the scenes. All seats are... More

We've attended a number of productions (all musicals) in the past few years. We've been delighted with every one! I've been involved in community theater (on and off stage) in the area for many years, and am biased - a number of my friends have been in productions here. Basically, the operating model is that the leads are Broadway/Equity caliber... More

Absolutely top quality performances!!! The small village of Dexter, has the big shows of Broadway! Great entertainment, and a very special place to enjoy a portion of your life! The Encore Musical Theater deserves a round of applause and a standing ovation!!!

Great place to see a show. We've seen a few. Actors were extremely talented and the shows were very entertaining. Small town charm with REAL theater experience. Highly recommend making the trip to Dexter!

My friend and I went to see Always Patsy Cline. This performance was fantastic. The young lady portrayed Patsy Cline singing Miss Cline's songs. I knew about three songs before I saw this performance. The performer's voice was outstanding. This theatre brings to this stage excellent performers.

Attended the musical 'Always, Patsy Cline' yesterday it was wonderful! Emmi Veinbergs and Sonja Marquis are terrific and the band was outstanding. If you can get a ticket, I assure you you won't be disappointed.

Went for the first time and was impressed. It is small and the stage right close to your seating. No bad seats. It is amazing what they can present in such a small area. The scenery/props are fabulous and everyone that performed did a spectacular job. I will definitely return.
