We have seen 2 shows so far. The Little Mermaid, we took the granddaughters to. They loved it. Recently we saw the Odd Couple. Lots of laughs. It was a great show. Very reasonably priced, too. Would highly recommend this venue.

I have attended several performances over the years and have NEVER been disappointed. The theater is small and intimate and not a bad seat in the place. The actors while usually locals are high quality and professional. The scenery is on par with bigger budget shows on Broadway. Trust me if you are ever in the area, be sure to... More

This week we saw Odd Couple but have seen many other shows in the past 16 years. The plays and musicals are very professional, entertaining, fun, and family friendly. They have 2 different theaters. One is larger (400 - 500 seats) and usually have the musical productions. The smaller intimate theater (250) is "in the round" & present the plays.... More

I have taken my church senior adult groups to see three different plays here and they have all been top notch! Hats off to the hosts, production crew and actors.

We try to visit the Playhouse at least 4 times each season. We drive approximately 4 hours but it has always been worth it. Small theater but not a bad seat in the house. It is just a comfortable and fun experience and we look forward to the upcoming season.

We have visited the playhouse about 4 xs over the course of a few years. It's always a fall thing for us since the area is so gorgeous that time of year. The playhouse is older. There always seems to be an issue with acoustics, some worse and some just minor. If you are more familiar with the show your... More

The Theater was fine, older but OK. I want to give the kids and everyone that was in the show cudo's for effort, but I felt that I have to give a poor rating. I've been to other shows and for the price I felt that it was like going to a 5-6 grade Christmas program very disappointing.

This is our 2nd time to attend a play at this location. Continues to be a welcome surprise. You will have to excuse the seating, its not fancy. Not a bad seat in the house. Order your tickets early. Our experience is that seats sell out. Appears that people are willing to travel to see the quality of the plays.... More

We went to the Adams Family Show with a bank group. The show was great. We were not in the main stage area, we were in the other room. It is much smaller & you are very close to the actors. It was a great show, the only complaint was the fog they used in the show, it irritated my... More
