People who have difficulty walking may find the staircase to the main stage daunting. Not sure if there's an elevator on the premises, but come prepared for a climb.

This is definitely community theatre. The adults were mediocre, but the children were excellent! The girl who plays Dodger is amazing! She stole the show! The theatre is very cute (as it's the oldest in the US, it should be!) and I felt good...continued

This is not a professional theater so you don't expect that level of work. But this was WONDERFUL fun!! Really a grand job with some tremendous voices and fine costuming and set - a total delight!!
