I didn't love the production I saw, but the building is lovely and I enjoyed my dinner at 219 afterward. $35 for a Sunday matinée is a fair price.

The Hound of the Baskervilles was funny, the actors were excellent, and the Wells Theater is a treasure! Definitely worth you time and the price is very reasonable... a fun outing!

Stuck in town due to cancelled flight looking to kill some time. The show was really really fun. Great cast and the theater is a lovely old place. I had a delightful afternoon for only $20. Go a support local theater.

Was expecting traditional retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tale. Surprised to find out it would be the unusual, hilarious 3 man farce. My sister and I came to the Wells years ago when they ran plays like Hot Grog, and Sam Shepard's Buried Child....More

Three cast members portray 20 characters in this very funny and entertaining play. Three words to describe: bravo, bravo, bravo!!!! Love this theatre with professional actors. Small venue with ability to purchase snacks, wine, beer, soda and water that you can take to your seats.
