After a struggle to stay alive, the Theater at Lime Kiln has closed its doors. We share our sadness with many others who hoped the theater would survive, however. and unfortunately, the announcement was recently made that it will no longer be in business.

An outdoor amphitheater in the woods. The show takes place with a background of boulders. It is so awesome. The talent they bring in is excellent. Take mosquito spray and a blanket or stadium seats. We are going back for a Labor Day show.
