Plan to be here for about 3 hours for the play and intermission. Bring a seat/back cushion; or the theater offers them for $1. The restroom facilities are nice & clean! This place is very well maintained! Consider leaving a donation for the unpaid actors and/or the venue. Optional, of course; but I was certainly moved to! I purchased three tickets but used only two. I was prepared to take the cost of the third ticket as a loss (not a tremendous loss, but a loss nonetheless). However, Evan graciously offered to keep a credit on the books for me for my next visit (any production). What a sweetheart!

Drinks and snacks are available just outside the venue. Only water is allowed in the theater. You can also bring your own food/picnic, arrive early, and take advantage of the tables and chairs set up around this beautiful little oasis. It's small, intimate, quiet, beautiful! Perfect for nature lovers! There are a couple of local restaurants nearby.

A straight-"froward" performance with a cast that will astound you with their acting and singing dexterity. Beautiful setting to boot!

The show, the cast, was fabulous. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed a picnic and some wine under the trees. Love the Theatricum!
