The theatre employs professional actors and does light comedy for the summer. Thoroughly enjoyable. Well air-conditioned small theatre (maybe take a sleeved top), refreshments area has drinks. The theatre is attached to a beautiful old estate house, 'Roselawn'. If you want to stay overnight, suggest Talwood Manor right across the street.

This play was hilarious and had a ball. Showboat is a local theatre that offers great performances, energetic actors at a reasonable price. There is not a bad seat in the theatre. Get there a little early if you want to have a parking space--parking is limited. I would highly recommend this quaint little theatre.

Set design transformed me to London in the 30's. Professional actors. Not a dull moment from beginning to end.

Fantastic Summer Theatre has returned once more to Port Colborne. Thanks to our local Author William Thomas for taking the initiative and saving her. Viewed most shows last summer and enjoyed immensely. Actors are energetic and believable. Looking forward to the new shows this year! Get your tickets early they're selling quickly for this season...

this is a priviledge to have a theatre in P.C. with 4 different plays held each summer and different ones through the year.
