Has closed, although website is still up. Not sure what is going on but had understood the theater building has been purchased by a church. In my opinion, steer clear.

Noo idea. Suggest you give them a call and ask. Also across the block is the Franks Family Music show which is really good. They have more talented performers and a better show but it is a smaller venue.
