Once again, great job from this theater. The way they portrayed the death of the soldiers was wonderful. Took our folks and they plan on going back to see it again with some friends.

An amazing evening. The eight actors who ably played both union and confederate soldiers must be some of the hardest working ones we've ever seen! It was enlightening... continued

Portraying the entire battle of Gettysburg is difficult to imagine in a small theater, but this adaptation is brilliant. The conceptualization and the acting are... continued

It was an intimate setting with the views of the soliders and their actions. We took our 14 yr son and 15 yr old nephew and they too enjoyed it all. The sounds of the... continued
