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.

Wasn't crazy about the theatre. Little to no accessibility and a long stairway. The physical seats were too close together, making it difficult to get into your row and seat.

I had no idea what to expect from the oldest community theatre in the country, but I thought it was excellent, from the acting to the set. Well done, I'll be back!
