This is a must stop if you enjoy live theatre and especially Shakespeare. We went to see The Comedy of Errors and it was outstanding. We went opening night. The facility and performance were exemplary. I do not often list places as much see.

The best description of this brilliant, exquisitely talented troupe is that it is like attending a fantastic Broadway play in the middle of Virginia. The troupe is one of the world's top in their league playing brilliant Shakespeare works as well as other historic plays....More
The theater isn’t that big. It only has one stage, and the rest is tickets, snacks, and eating areas. You might be able to have a tour, but I don’t know. And yes, there is a schedule for 2018. It is available at the website... More
