You will not find a more fun way to spend an evening than at the Music Hall. This is everything community theatre should be: it has talent and a fine production, along with the energy and warmth that such efforts generate.

And British Music...continued

The four of us at my table enjoyed the show with great glee. There were quite a few new acts. It was good to see "Legs" back dancing again. The complimentary refreshments served by the Music Hall Barmaids added to the enjoyment of the evening.

Absolutely brilliant fun. If you like light hearted sing-alongs, free flowing drinks and good company, this is the show for you.

It was superb-- the best Music Hall by the British Players yet, and all the others were great! This production was especially fine-tuned.

I did not know what to expect -- had never been. We enjoyed the cabaret style. The program was lively and accessible. It was a cheerful experience. We were seated at a table with two gentlemen we did not know. They were good company and...continued

A fun evening. Relax at a table with beer, wine or soft drinks and snacks. Enjoyable skits with good singers and dancing. Parking in the area can be a little difficult. Limited parking at the site. So arrive early enough to find parking in...continued

This is a wonderful event. I have been going since the 1960's and have witnessed some slight changes to make it more accessible to younger people but otherwise it really creates the atmosphere of the old music hall and the songs are still sung...continued

Very cute and well done presentation; lots of laughs. My only suggestion is that they find a way for the performers to project their voices; it was very difficult to hear, even close up.

Very vaudeville and campy. A lot of fun if you ever had be to an English Music Hall. Everyone is welcoming and committed to an enjoyable event. You might not enjoy it as much if you don't have the English context.

Expect a casual event with an older audience. Expect to laugh out loud on several occasions. I loved it.

I enjoyed the British Musical Theater very much. Lots of peppy songs and bawdy jokes. THe players were full of life and uplifted the audience. I would go again next year. The audience was seated at tables and they served wine, water and other...continued

This was an interesting mix of comedy (older jokes, but delivered very well), musical acts, and vignettes. The performance was solid, though targeted at a slightly older audience than I and my date were. It would probably be best for the over...continued

This might have just been the best "Music Hall" ever. The set was great, the costumes were wonderful, and the talent was fantastic.

The dance numbers by the Bow Belles were outstanding thanks to Kim Newball, the songs were great (plus audience...continued
