The setting is fantastic nestled in a state forest. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The theater welcomes buses and small groups with the same attitudes as individual customers. The price is right for the quality of shows that they put on.

Nice small theater nestled amongst the woods, really nice venue, and theater itself is not huge. Refreshments served during intermission.
