A great group of inspiring actors bring a selection of plays and musicals to this town. Their performances enrich the entertainments offered throughout the winter season.

Have seen several plays here, rocky horror picture show twice, little Shop of horrors, some shakespeare. They have a bar for the intermission. It is nicely placed on opposite side of hutchinson square where you can park, or nearby multistorey storey car park.

We've always enjoyed coming to plays at this small theatre but be aware that on hot nights the A/C cannot keep up. The theatre is small and you are packed in tight and it gets hot. Management is aware of issue but hasn't done anything...More

Take a time out and visit this talented community theater. Affordable tickets and the cast give it their all. From mature to children, different plays are offered throughout the season. It's small, comfortable and a great way to spend 'time out'. You can order tickets...More
